Space travel

Acorns have loved learning all about the planets this week with a visit from the mobile planetarium. They learned all about the atmosphere on different planets, as well as what the different planets are made of. We have also been looking at money and paying for our ticket to get into the planetarium. Some children even made amounts using different coins up to 10 and 20p!

Rowan learning about the development of humans

Firstly we discussed the development of babies and how they change.  This is mainly that they grow physically (height, weight, shape) but also that they grow emotionally (feelings) and psychologically (thoughts).

For homework we were asked to find out how tall we were and how much we weighed.  There were some interesting results compared to now and with each other as well as thinking about both height and weight

Finally, we felt how heavy the average baby weighed and what it might have been like carrying that child.

Science week

This week was all about space, science and experimenting in Acorns. We made our own rockets and not only did we get to work with the older children in Year 3 making plastic out of milk, we also got to make a rainbow on a plate! Later on in the week, we had a science treasure hunt and made an ‘exploding rocket’ with cola and mints. The children have thoroughly enjoyed all of the experiments this week!
