YR had a great time during Diversity Week. We visited St Thomas' Church and listened to The Easter Story. We had a look at all of the different things we see in church and asked questions about them. We also studied the Hindu festival of Holi. This is a spring festival of colour. We drew around our friends onto card and then sprayed them with paint. We also made brightly coloured Rangoli patterns and found out lots of facts about how Holi is celebrated. We enjoyed lots of assemblies from different visitors and found out about the six main religions around the world.What a busy week we had.
YR are having lots of fun as part of our whole school science week. We have a science lab in our class and have been doing lots of different experiments. We investigated magnets and found out which objects were magnetic and non magnetic. We made our own fridge magnets and made models with our magnetic blocks. We have also had fun making water beads, swinging buckets of water above our heads and using the virtual reality headset. We enjoyed our visit from Sublime Science and made our own slime and fake snow. We have been mixing materials to make potions in the mud kitchen and have even written our own friendship potions. We have got lots more experiments planned for the rest of the week so keep checking our class web page.
