Chocolate Button Experiment

Today we listened to a poem called 'Chocolate', written by Michael Rosen. We each held a chocolate button in the palm of our hand, read below to find out what happened next...

Faisal talks about what happened whilst listening to the poem:
"We got chocolate in our hands and we had to squeeze it. The chocolate had all melted in our hands. It was all sticky. We got to lick our hands and eat the chocolate. It melted like a snowman. Our hands are warm."

Here are some of the other things we said whilst talking about what happened during the experiment:

Davinna: "It's messy chocolate, it's not chocolate any more, it's like chocolate milk".

Bruna: "It was dry but then it was all sticky"

Kha'Mari "It was hard and then it went soft"

Reception Bus Trip

Today we went on a Bus Trip around our local area, Brixton. We talked about all the places we visited, the things we could see, and some of us even managed to spot our houses! We had noticed that the windows on the bus were very dirty, luckily we went to the bus garage and we got to go through the bus wash. It was so exciting, we got to go through twice! Take a look at some of the pictures from our trip:

Naughty Bus

Our focus story this week is 'Naughty Bus' in preparation for our Bus Trip on Thursday (although we hope our bus won't be as naughty as the one in the story). We have been thinking of ways buses help us, and we have thought of some questions we would like to ask the bus driver on Thursday, here are a few of our questions:

"I wonder how the bus stops.." - Kamarni

"I wonder why the bus driver paints all the buses red.." - Tahiya

"How many seats does the bus have?" - Bruna

"Why does the bus have so many windows?" - Kha'Mari

People Who Help Us - When we are poorly

This week we have been learning about the different people who can help us when we are feeling poorly. We have learnt that in an emergency Paramedics can come in an ambulance to help you, and we used junk modelling to create our own ambulance models. We have also turned our home corner into a Doctors Surgery, we are role-playing being Doctors and Nurses and taking care of each other. In ICT this week we have been using 2Simple Software to learn more about Doctors and Nurses.
