Ordering numbers

British Science Week 2021

The Butterflies Class participated in a whole school science experiment. We were very excited to be building and launching our rocket cars. The Nursery and Reception classes had a competition with their class rocket cars and used chalks to measure the distance the cars travelled.

As well as our rocket car experiment, the Butterflies Class tuned in to an online interactive lesson from the National Farmers Union. We were exploring the question 'Which came first, the chicken or the egg?' In this live lesson, we joined Deb to find out where eggs come from, how they develop into chickens and how new-born chicks are cared for. We learnt how an incubator works and compared it with a hen. We were lucky to be able to watch some chicks hatching live! Using their learning, the children were then asked to rearrange their life cycle cards to show how life cycles are a continuous process with no start and end point.

It's fun to build words outdoors.

We set up a veterinary surgery in our classroom.

We have been representing numbers using the Part-Part-Whole model.

We have been looking for tricky words in books.
