We were excited to hear about the accidental discovery of a skeleton in our school playground this week. As a year group, we had discussions about what the skeleton could actually be and then in the afternoon we got to go dig it up. We carefully used brushes, shovels and trowels to help us.
We found out the skeleton was actually a Deinonychus
We had lots of fun dissecting daffodils to find and name the different parts of the plant. We worked well in small groups and learnt lots from the experience.
We had lots of fun experimenting with changes during science week. We did lots of experiments, which prompted lots of question asking, thinking about how these changes happen. In year 2, we particularly enjoyed the sweet investigation. To begin with, we predicted what might happen to Skittles once they are added to warm water and thought about questions we would like to find the answer to. We carried out the investigation to see what happened!
