In science club this week, we went pond dipping to see what was lurking in the waters this time of year. The children weren’t expecting to see much, but we were pleasently surprised! See some photos on Twitter!
This week, as part of our Little Red unit of work, we’ve been thinking about healthy foods to take to Grandma’s house. Reception have been chopping up and tasting some tropical fruits and comparing how they look and how they taste. Check out the photos on twitter!
Good to see science club exploring different types of rocks this afternoon. They used hot rocks and melting wax to write their names. Also, great exploration of Jurassic fossils and the imprints they made.
We had a great time in science club, learning about how forensic scientists find finger prints when exploring crime scenes. We had to observe carefully and use simple equipment to find the perfect print.
Science club was was so much fun last night. We used playdoh, unident and toy dinosaurs to recreate how real fossils are made. The playdoh represented the sticky mud the dinos fell in when they died. Then we pressed down hard with our hands, to show how layers of mud, sand and rocks piled on top of the dinosaurs. Finally, we replaced the dinosaurs body with unident (which represented the fossilised remains). Messy, but lots of fun!
I was absolutely thrilled with Year 3s practical skills in science this week. They are getting better and better. It was a joy to watch them carrying out their experiments with the care and accuracy I would expect from much older children! They tested granulated sugar, icing sugar and salt to see if they dissolved at the same rate or took different amounts of time.
Year 2 have been investigating how and why materials change form. Most materials expand when they are heated. The children made predications on how the materials might change and described how the materials appeared when they changed. We had so much fun and were amazed at the changes that took place when materials including chocolate, bath bombs, wax and jelly cubes were mixed with hot water.

Another amazing day at KIND. We are so sad that it is our last day but have been so lucky to have such a great opportunity. Thank you so much to all the staff at KIND, especially Tilly.
