All classes and Mrs Mackenzie were given two seed potatoes. Class 3 planted them in a bag and put them in a box. They started to grow but were not getting much light so we moved them. Unfortunately they then were under the edge of the canopy and got a lot of water. Too much water and they died. Today all the potatoes were dug up and Mrs Mackenzie let Class 3 have hers. Mrs Doe cut them into slices and then we cooked them in the oven. We made crisps! We loved tasting them.
Today we planted some pumpkin and squash plants in our vegetable garden.
We had grown them from seeds.
What a great day we had. Look at all the animals we saw.
The children took loads more photos. Hopefully you can see them at Open Evening.
This week has been Science Week at Hilltop Infant school. On Monday the Space Dome visited and tomorrow we are off to Tropical Wings to look at all different creatures.
Today we tried some astronaut food.It came in a very small foil packet. When we looked at it we said it was hard, dry sticky and light. We liked how it smelt and most of us loved the taste.
Today Class 3 had a wonderful time learning all about Space in the visiting Space dome that appeared in the hall. We found out about The International Space Centre and enjoyed watching Tim Peake showing us what he does. We learnt about the first moon landings many years ago.
Today Mrs Atanasov came to talk to the Early Years about Bulgaria. we listened so well and learnt lots of facts. At home time today the children told Mrs Marsh these facts
- Lots more people live in England than Bulgaria
- Children play with the same type of toys in these countries
- It would take 2 days and 2 nights to drive there
- In the summer it is hotter than here
- In the winter there is a lot of snow in the mountains
- they start school when they are seven
Can your child tell you some more facts?
