Interviewing a baby
Dart Class have been learning about life in the 1950s, as well as changes to humans as they grown, and so Mr Tzen asked his nephew Finley to pop in to teach us a few things! First, we learnt about caring for babies and we had the chance to ask Finley's mum Beth loads of questions. Then, Finley showed us some of his favourite toys, helping us to think about which toys have stayed the same since the 1950s and which ones are quite different.
Preparing the vegetable patch
Dart Class have been busy prepping their vegetable patch for the growing season. We have dug through some compost and cleared the weeds, leaving space for our potato plants to grow. Let's see which other plants we decide to grow to fill the rest of the space...
Science week, Engineer talk
On the 13th March, as part of Science week, we were lucky enough to spend some time talking to Mr Steel who joined a Zoom call to talk with our class. The children sat so well, showing respect and listening eagerly, and then followed this up with some great questions! They asked things like, "how do planes stay in the air?", "how do they land safely?" and "how can they go so fast?" It was lovely hearing their curiosity and interest, and seeing planes appearing in their play in the days that followed!
We've been carefully looking after our seedlings outside our class for the last few weeks, and after all of our care we've got some plants that are ready to plant out. We have beans and peas growing up the canes as well as some radishes, strawberries and carrots in the ground around them. Our next challenge is keeping them watered in this hot and dry weather!
