Hello from Red Bubble!
We have been busy getting back into learning and having fun at school. We have been doing an experiment to change the colour of a white rose. We have been exploring the different plants around the school and we have also been researching and writing facts about different animals that live in different environments.
This week in science, we have been looking at different types of rocks and objects and predicting if they will sink or float in water. We tested small stones, granite, marble and we also had volcanic rock which had an interesting result! We then explored other objects we could find and tested them.
Tomorrow we will be recording our results and discussing why the heavy piece of wood floats but a light, small stone sunk!
Can you do your own experiment?
what do you think will float and what will sink?
Which material could you make a boat out of that will float for more than 5 minutes?
Photos to follow!

Apologies for any confusion caused!
We HIGHLY recommend you visit www.phonicsplay.co.uk and try some of their free phonics games. The children have loved them and they have made a big impact.
Reading - At least five times a week and reading is always king, if you have not got enough time for homework please put reading as a priority. Enjoy listening, reading to and most importantly taking about what you like in the story with your child, a good conversation really helps them to understand what they have read.
Topic - NEW HOMEWORK -
This term we are going to be Time Travellers! We will be exploring different periods of times and the big events that happened. This will include Monarchs, lifestyle and how life has changed for children since the 1800's.
