This week our focus is on being a good friend to others.
We are trying our best to be kind and to say nice things to others.
Today we picked a secret person each and we tried to say or do something nice to them today (a little like Secret Santa!)
We played a game that helped us get to know our classmates better.  We really enjoyed playing bingo with the names afterwards.
We drew our friends and wrote about what being a good friend means.
When we do something nice for someone, we can put a post-it on the fish in the corridor.
It is lovely that there are so many nice people in our class and in our school!
We have a friendship bench in school.
We can sit on this if we feel we need a friend to play with or talk to.
If someone spots a child on the bench they will offer friendship.
It is so nice to have so many good friends!
We have really enjoyed friendship week.
We particularly enjoyed being nice to each other, getting to know each other better game, colouring and comment competition and playing nicely in the yard.
We had a prizewinner for the colouring competition.
Well done, you really deserved it!

Watch out for this booklet tomorrow with lots of great tips and advice.

Cloud in a bottle

We can make our own clouds in a bottle.
You need to put cold water into a bottle, then empty it out again.
Light a match and drop it into the bottle.
Squeeze the bottle.
Nothing happens.
When you stop squeezing the bottle, hey presto, you have a cloud in the bottle.
How does this work?
Clouds are formed when water droplets in the air cool and then collect on dust particles. In this demonstration, the dust particles were provided by the smoke from the match. The air inside the bottle was cooled by releasing the pressure after the bottle was squeezed.
We were delighted to be able to make our own clouds!

Water Cycle Demonstration

We have been learning a lot about the water cycle.
Today we did our own water cycle demonstration.
We half filled a cup with water, and marked the level on the cup.
We covered this with cling film and left it on the radiator.
We hoped that some of the water would evaporate, that the water vapour would hit the cling film and would condense into water droplets, and that it would fall again as drops of water (precipitation).
We left the water on the radiator, and by home time we could see the water cycle in action.
We were very impressed!

Learning about China

We are learning lots of interesting things about China.
We saw a Chinese spoon, an indoor padded jacket (from Japan) and we practised using chopsticks.
We are also doing a play set in China long ago, so it will be good to know what traditional Chinese clothes look like and about some Chinese customs.

Sneezes and Germs

We were learning about sneezes and germs today.
We know that we should use the inside of our elbows if we feel a sneeze or a cough coming.
We know that a sneeze can travel as fast as a car on the motorway.
We watched some great Tigtag videos on this and we tried it out with a balloon and pretend germs (glitter and cornflour).
What a mess!
We will try to catch our sneezes in future!
