Term 1

   These are just some of the books we have been reading this term as we try to foster a love of reading among the class. The children are currently enjoying our humorous class book, ‘Fizzlebert Stump  - The Boy Who Ran Away from the Circus (and Joined the Library)’. We chose ‘The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane’ as the focus for our writing this term. Finally, two books by Angela McAllister – Leon and the Place Between and Winter’s Child have given the children new reading skills such as asking questions to deepen their understanding of a text. Finally, everyone in class has chosen a reading book from the reading corner and our daily reading session is now a favourite part of the day.

In Science we have been learning about our teeth and the functions they have. We used our knowledge of canines, incisors and molars to make some teeth out of clay, with excellent results. We are now investigating the effects that different liquids have on teeth. We have put hard-boiled eggs in a range of liquids, including vinegar, milk and coca cola. We will share the results next week!
