During our topic on plants in Science, Holly class enjoyed exploring our Enchanted Wood gardens. We found and named lots of plants including daffodils and daisies. We also found lots of different types of trees! We looked after the plants by watering them using a watering can and checking that they would have sunlight at some point during the day.
Class Holly designed and carried out an investigation to find out which drinks were good and bad for our teeth. We used boiled eggs to represent our teeth and submerged the eggs in the drinks for 24 hours. We predicted which drinks would be the best and worst. We concluded that the water was the best drink for our teeth as it did not change the appearance of the egg. We found that blackcurrant juice was the worst for our teeth as it changed the egg the appearance most – the egg turned white and bumpy!
Class Holly have learned lots about Britain and British values. We looked at how the Union Jack was designed, created our own flags, looked at typical British foods and where they are sourced and researched the Royal Family. We also had a British tea party in class which included typical British cakes and sandwiches we made ourselves!
