On Monday the children were learning to investigate an area of Science – whether something will float or sink. As a class, they made their predictions as to whether they thought each object would sink of float. They then had a set of objects to test, using a box of water. Some results were not a surprise to some children, but others were. We talked about what may be a reason for some things floating and others not. Maybe your son or daughter could tell you what s/he found out about which objects float and which don’t; and why this might be the case.
We are also starting to see some changes in our class garden. We discussed what we saw there and used words like stem, stalk shoot, flower. Can your child remember the names of the first signs of life in our garden?
