Being a paleontologist is great fun, but also teaches us to be patient and careful. We had to excavate the chocolate chips from these cookies using only a tooth pick and a brush.

Mercury class thought about how the internet works and how we make connections to others on the internet. We made a web of different connections by saying nice things to each other as we passed the string to make the web.

Chocolate!

Mercury have been learning about melting chocolate.

We had a competition to see what way melted the chocolate fastest. We tried rubbing, squeezing, breathing on it, and many other methods. Look at our results. We discovered that creating heat by rubbing our hands together worked best.

Amazing Animals

 

Our topic this term is ‘Amazing Animals’.

We started off our learning with a visit from some amazing animals. We really enjoyed meeting them and learning all about them. Later we found out which countries they came from. Then we used our maps to find the countries and made labels for them.
