Today it was our science day.

We learnt about what science is and talked about the difference between biology, chemistry and physics.

We learnt about some famous scientists. these are some of the scientists we talked about:

  • Maria Sibylla Merian was an entomologist who studied butterflies. She was the first person to understand how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly.
  • Caroline Herschel was an astronomer who discovered Uranus (with her brother).
  • Mary Anning was a Paleontologist who found the first ichthyosaur skeleton along with other dinosaurs.
  • Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin which helps us to get better when we are ill.

In the afternoon, there were lots of science experiments in the classroom that we could take part in.

Our Christmas assembly

Friday 3rd December

Today we had a visit from Matthew from Leicestershire library services. He talked to the children about what a library is and how they can borrow books. He then showed the children a pack that should be arriving at school soon, that they will get to take home. Then he read them a couple of stories. The first was his choice and the second the children voted for.

The children listened very well and answered questions about what they thought was going to happen in the stories. They talked about the animals in the first story. Matthew was impressed that they knew what a racoon was, although one child said they knew what they were as they had seen them in the bushes in Beaumont Leys! The children growled like a tiger, made bird  noises and pretended to juggle acorns.
