To start off our science topic we planted some beans, grass seed and cress to see what would happen. It a little late in the year for bean seeds so we are interested in seeing if they will grow. We planted the beans and put the cress on wet paper. The children worked in pairs to plant their seed and think about what would happen next.
During science we have been learning all about plants. We have learnt about how they grow and what they need to survive. To end this top we found out how to work out a trees age. All you need to do is measure the circumference at one metre from the ground and divide by 2.5. The children had great fun out doors trying to find the oldest tree.
This week we have been reading Leon and the place between. In this story Leon and his friends visit the circus. As we can’t go to the circus, the adults in Diamond class created a circus in class. The children spent the morning writing and performing their circus poems!
During lockdown we heard about a new paper plane design that made your planes fly really far. The children all wanted to have a go but didn’t know how to make them. Miss Nesbitt’s Dad is a pro so he helped us by making a demonstration video. Even though some of the folds were a little tricky we persevered and made our planes. We had fun at lunch time seeing how far they could travel! Thanks Mr Nesbitt

Look at these amazing Harry Potter characters that B made. I love them! I also tried to make a Harry Potter character and named his Harry Plopper. The children in school made a film using their potatoes…. We will show you when you are back in school next week.
Diamond class teams meeting- Monday 1st March at 2pm
26 February 2021
Hello everyone, I have some games to play in our final teams meeting before you return to school. It is time for you guys to have some input in this meeting. You task for this weekend is to come up with an interesting quiz question and three multiple choice answers for the class to guess. This can be about anything that you are interested in (as long as it is age appropriate!) e.g. When was google invented A) 1994 b) 1998 C) 1884
The question that the adults deem to be the most interesting will win a prize from my prize box when they return to school.
Hoping to see lots more of you on the teams meeting this week!
Have a lovely, sunny weekend Miss Nesbitt :)

C has been working super hard these last few weeks. He finished the half term off by designing his own pancakes and then writing some instructions on how to make pancakes. I can see time conjunctions and bossy verbs. Well done C!
