Autumn 2019

Welcome! The children have settled in to Chaffinch class extremely well and we thank all parents and carers for their support during the settling in process. The children are enjoying exploring their new classroom and making new friends. We look forward to an exciting term ahead!


This term our topic is Wonder! We will be turning into scientists, carrying out lots of science experiments to help us explore all things weird and wonderful!

We kicked off the term by exploring our senses. First we explored our sense of hearing and learnt how to make telephones using plastic cups and string. The children investigated the difference between when the string was kept tight and when the string became loose. They enjoyed using the phones to talk with their friends. Perhaps you could try making one at home...




Following on from looking at our sense of hearing, we then explored our sense of smell. We had different scents that we had to guess and then discussed which ones we liked and disliked. The lemon scent was one of the favourites but the turmeric tea bag proved to be quite unpopular!
