Germs Experiment

We planned an experiment to see why we use soap to wash our hands. We predicted what would happen when we put our finger in a bowl of pepper and what would change if we had soap on our finger. We then carried out the experiment. When we put our dry finger in the peppery water, the pepper stuck to our finger. We were amazed when we put our soapy finger into the water and the pepper scattered rapidly away. We discussed how important it is to use soap to get rid of germs, just like Florence Nightingale recommended.

Superhero Masks

We designed our own superhero masks and wrote a list of the resources we needed. We then marked out the shape on felt and cut it out. We used a real needle and thread to stitch the elastic on. We then evaluated our creations, saying what we really liked about them and what we would improve on next time.

Super Veggies

We made our own super veggie using real vegetables!


We've been learning to represent numbers using a tens frame.
