Space and Rockets Open Day!

Our class was invited to a Space and Rockets Open Day in Room 9 today.
We had so much fun learning about the space and the solar system.

We were very lucky to see the rocket launch. 
We got to countdown from 10 to blast off and it was so exciting.
They launched a balloon rocket straight across their classroom.

Next they launched three fizzy rockets that shot straight up to the ceiling!
We are looking forward to trying out some of these experiments in our own classroom!
Thanks to all the children in Ms. McLoughlins class for all the lovely ideas and a very thrilling morning!!

Winter woolies!

We are learning all about winter and how to stay warm when it is cold.
Teacher brought in a big bag of clothes today and we helped her to sort them into two piles, summer clothes and winter clothes.
In winter we wear warm clothes like gloves, scarves, mittens hats and boots.
We learned that wool comes from a sheep. We looked at what happens to sheep wool before it can be made into a warm winter jumper or hat.
Then we made our own woolly hats.

We designed our own patterns and painted them before adding some cotton wool to make them look fluffy and warm!
