Did you know your heart has four chambers?
We are exploring the senses this term as part of our topic. On Thursday we were investigating our sense of taste. We did some blind taste testing where we also held our nose to see how our sense of smell affects our taste. We had the opportunity to try some more unusual fruits such as dragon fruit, papaya and passion fruit.
A surprise visitor!
A model skeleton has now appeared in our class. We will be finding out lots of information about him in the next few weeks. Any suggestions for a name welcome!

Good luck and happy symmetry hunting!

Our Time Machine is nearly ready for us to begin using. A big thank you to Alice’s mum for the huge box and to Kat for her help with the designing.
Parent Teacher Interviews
A huge thank you to all the parents/carers who were able to come along for parent teacher interviews. The support from home is always much appreciated and it is great to hear how we are working together to support the learning of our children.
Please remember if you have anything to offer or any concerns then please let me know.
As part of our preparation for our class talks we have been practising talking clearly and using expression. Today we used an App on the ipad called Puppet Pals. We had to make up our own mini story using the puppets and then record the story. If you have time then have a go at home.
We were using talking tins today to record some facts. It was funny to hear what our voices sounded like but good practise for our class talks!
PE CHANGE OF DAY
