Collecting data in Room 1

Room 1 were learning about data with Ms Butler. We compared the number of sweets in each box and made corresponding bar charts. There weren’t many twirls. We of course sampled some of the chocolates. What a tasty way to learn about data!

Experimenting in Room 1

Room 1 experimented to see what would happen if you mixed a fat loving substance (milk) with a water loving substance (washing up liquid). We used food colouring to make the results more obvious. It was very cool!

Learning about food in Room 1

Room 1 have been learning about food with Ms Butler. We made pizzas with our favourite toppings in art, learned how food in the past in history and even made our own butter! We also made musical instruments using pasta and rice.

Halloween fun in Room 1

Room 1 celebrated Halloween on Friday. We read  Halloween stories that we had been working on. We wrote a procedure on how to turn somebody into a toad. We turned each other into mummies. We acted like vampires sucking up malteasers. We made a spooky Halloween torch art. We even managed to squeeze in a Halloween dance outside!!

Sugar skills in Room 1

Room 1 were learning about Dia de los muertos (Day of the Dead). We learned that it is a happy 3 day celebration that starts on Halloween. Skulls are constant emblem of it and they are often seen smiling and “laughing at death”. The skulls are always very colourful so that was our aim!
