The Daisies have been using their senses to explore the pumpkins. We talked about how what they look like, smell and feel like. We even talked about what we could do with them. Some of our Daisies are going to carve pumpkins for Halloween!
The Daisies have been learning all about hibernation. They helped our little Hoglets hibernate by finding them lots of food and a safe place to hibernate in our wild area. They made sure the Hoglets had lots of leaves to keep them safe and warm during the Winter. See you in Spring Hoglets!
As part of our ‘Changing States’ topic we looked at how we can change water into a gas and a solid and back again. Next, Mrs S gave each of us a pet ice cube, a paper plate and a piece of tin foil. We were asked to keep the ice cube in its solid state for as long as we could. We thought carefully about using scientific language.
Today, the Tigers have been learning about the life cycles of both amphibians and insects, along with their classifications. They were tasked to find the correct information hidden around the classroom and complete the life cycles of frogs, newts, butterflies and dragonflies.
Some of our After School Gardening Club had a great time harvesting baby carrots. We loved pulling them out of the soil and comparing all the different shapes and sizes. They tasted so delicious we can’t wait to grow some more next year!
The Leopards took part in a scientific experiment linked to plant reproduction. They took cuttings from a geranium in order to see if they can start the process of asexual reproduction. We can’t wait to find out the results.
