Multiskills fun!

Today Toucans went to the Multiskills event at Billesley Tennis Centre. We took part in 10 different events including bean-bag toss, tennis skills, baton run, football shooting, kwik wicket and throwing and catching games. We worked in two groups and travelled around the activities together. We were quite competitive! We enjoyed playing against each other but we were very good at congratulating the winning team also.

Everyone enjoyed the event and we were all tired out on the way home!

Material shapes

In Science today we learnt about how to change the shape of objects made from different materials. We started our lesson by collecting three things we thought we could change the shape of and three things we couldn’t. We had a discussion about the properties of these materials. We then investigated which materials we could change by stretching, bending, squashing and twisting. We had great fun finding out!

Properties of materials

In our Science lesson today we learnt more about the properties of materials. We explored some different materials for ourselves to find out what properties they had. We focused on naming different materials but also describing them using scientific vocabulary. We focused on transparent, opaque, waterproof and flexible.

Our fire engines

Today Toucans have had a DT day! This week we have researched how toy vehicles moved. We then designed our own fire engines which we made today. We had to think really carefully about how to solve our own problems. There was a lot of perseverance needed!

We are very pleased with our fiished fire engines!
