Potato Growing Competition

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.

Science Week

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.

One small step for man…One giant leap for Class 3!

 

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.
