sThis week in Science, Elephants Class investigated how we could save the dragon ice eggs from melting. We measured the eggs at the start and the end of our investigation. We wrapped one egg in paper, one in foil (metal), one in fabric and one in nothing. Which egg do you think melted the most? And which one melted the least? Also, can you see what is inside the egg waiting to hatch?
Lions and Zebras class have been conducting an Ice Dragon Egg experiment this week, seeing what material they could use to help slow the process of the dragon eggs melting. They started off by measuring each egg to see how large they were at the beginning of the experiment. They then wrapped one egg in fabric, one in foil, one in paper and left one unwrapped. They then measured the eggs the next day to see which one had melted the least and wrote up their findings. Afterwards they all explored what the ice eggs felt and looked like.
As a whole school we spent the last day of the half term (Thursday 11th February) learning all about Chinese New year. In Lions and Zebras class we learnt the story of how the zodiac years came about and how Chinese New Year is celebrated. We then did some writing about what we had learnt, made a Chinese dragon and practised writing our name in Chinese.
Elephants have really enjoyed learning to play our own African rhythms on the djembe drums. We hope you enjoy it too!
Elephants have really enjoyed their PE session this week, learning about movement and balance in gymnastics. They were especially good at practising safely jumping off the equipment and trying something new.
In Geography this half term Lions and Zebras have been comparing Ilfracombe to Accra, Ghana. We have been looking at landmarks in Ilfracombe, deciding whether they are human or physical features and finding them on a map.
