We ate space food this week! Food that astronauts eat in space has all the water taken out of it so it’s very light. We tasted chocolate chip ice cream! Yum!!!! Some of us thought it tasted like Maltesers…
I liked making a constellation telescope when we were learning facts about stars. I know that planets are brighter than stars. – Zoa
I liked making the telescope too. I learned that the sun is a star. – Max
A constellation is a group of stars that make one big picture. My telescope was a small bear constellation. – Poppy

Here we are all wearing something blue for anti-bullying week:
We did a science experiment on Wednesday to observe how our shadows changed during the day. One person had to stand on the same spot at 9 o’clock, 10 o’clock and 11 o’clock and the other person had to draw around the first person’s shadow. We noted where the sun was and wrote down the time inside our shadows.
Sun at 9 o’clock Sun at 10 o’clock Sun at 11 o’clock
We know how to explain these findings by describing what a shadow is and linking our findings to what we are learning about the Earth and the sun. Even though it looks like the sun is moving, we know that it is actually the Earth that moves!
I liked making a chalk picture of Earth, the sun and the moon. – Rory
I liked playing Jungle Run at my BOSS club – Caitlin
I’ve never tried throwing the ball in a basket before and it was really hard for me but I nearly got it in. I’ll try again soon. – Quinn
I liked learning about telling the time. I liked playing ‘guess my time’ with the little clocks. – Poppy
I have never bounced a basketball so fast before. I was getting better at it. – Ella
I liked going to the library on Monday. Sophie
I liked playing in our new ‘space station’. I liked looking at the space samples and there was meteors! – Rory
We liked playing a new counting game on the computers at morning starter. It was Topmarks blast off. –Zoa and Imogen

As part of our Safari topic we have been learning about predators and prey, as well as how some animals use camouflage to hide from predators. We did a science experiment where we had to pretend to be birds (predators) looking for prey (worms).
Here are our results:
Worms found in the first round…
Worms found in the second round…
Maybe someone from our class could explain these results to you at home!
