The children of Chestnut class earned their golden time today. Most had a mad 10 minutes run on the equipment outside in the sunshine while others painted. Then they got the construction kits out in the shade and fiddled... Here is a great model that was made.
What a bright sunny morning! Just the day to get the water out and do a bit of estimating ... We also looked at scales on measuring jugs and used our new written method of addition and subtraction to solve number sentences in litres and millilitres.

We dressed up as flowers today and used tennis balls as pollen to explore how flowers are pollinated by insects. Some the children were the pollinators- bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Can you explain what happens during pollination to someone at home?

We also found that these seeds grow best in soil planted many together in a light sunny spot.
