Soil Detectives

Today Ruby class were investigating soil to find out what it is, why we need soil and how it is formed.

We went into the garden to find out more. The children had fun discovering what lives in soil and what it consists of. In class we sorted through trays of soil and found snails, woodlice and other creepy crawlies amongst the organic matter.

Please take the time to revise times tables up to 12 with your child as often as you can and encourage the children to play Times Tables Rockstars to consolidate their learning.

Roman Day: Tuesday, 7th June!

We’re going to launch our Summer 2 learning with a Roman Day! Children are invited to come into school dressed up as a Roman citizen. Some ideas for costumes can be found above – grab a white t-shirt and wrap a belt around it for an easy go-to, or add a pop of colour with a scarf. The possibilities are endless! We look forward to seeing everyone’s fantastic costumes when we return from Half Term!

Ruby class were investigating capacity this week, using different size containers to measure liquids. The children have identified the correct units of measurements, using these to measure and compare. They were able to deduce that containers of different shapes can still hold the same capacity of liquid.
