Today we discussed what it must be like to be blind.
Children followed a line in the school woods guided by partners. One child had their eyes closed and were guided safely around an obstacle course.
Great skills in empathy and trust were displayed by all children.
We also tried to be a catterpillar. This was fun. Only the two front people could open their eyes. They tried hard to guide the rest of its body safely around the woods.

“Do you like my frog’s hat?”
We enjoyed learning about the lifecycle of frogs in a fun way. Happy Spring !
We made a Diver from plasticine.
We attached them to a bent straw with a paper clip.
we added water , closed the lid and squeezed the bottle.
water pushed up the straw and the Diver became heavy and sank.
I released my squeeze and the water came out and the Diver floated to the top again!
In Ms. Keyes's class we worked together to build a variety of parachutes. We tried out different types to see what worked the best. Some flew very well and others crashed to the ground!
Ms.Keyes's 5th class recycled materials to make this fish inspired art!
We had three fish in our class for 4 weeks; a starfish, a flatfish and a guppy!
Look at this!
How strong is my magnet?
Magnets attract materials through wood.
Look who came to sleep in my back garden!
