This week we have been having a go at some of the activities we will be doing at the Mini Olympics in July. We tried object pick up, aiming at a target and throwing the javelin. Watch out for more activities coming soon!
Today we have been learning how to program the Bee-bots. We have been working with a partner to move the Bee-bot from one person to the other. The Bee-bot is very clever and never forgets anything it is told unless you remember to clear it’s memory. If you forget it does everything!!
We have been busy making cards for a special occasion this Sunday! Can you guess who they are for?
This week we achieved our mathematics targets and have moved on to the next! Mrs Bestford was really pleased!
We had a great day at Redwood, the Ernest Cook Trust. We started the day by having our snack to see if the weather would improve as it was pouring with rain when we arrived!
Then we went outside to do some pond dipping. It was raining quite hard by now so the grown ups were not able to take many photographs… but we had lots of fun and found quite a few creatures including blood worms and beetle larvae.
After pond dipping we went back to the meadow and had a picnic…
When we had finished our lunch we spent time looking for mini beasts, building bug hotels, climbing trees and jumping in muddy puddles!
We had a fantastic time – ‘the best day ever’ according to Iffan!
