FS 2/3 – Mrs Kinch – Ash Class

Welcome to FS 2/3 Class Page

We are really enjoying our topic about water and we are learning a lot!

We have explored the capacity of different containers and talked about how to measure carefully.  We were surprised when a tall container and a flat container held the same amount of water!

We have investigated a variety of objects to find out which ones float and which ones sink and talked about why we think this happens.

Last week, we enjoyed the story The Billy Goats Gruff.  We made bridges for the three goats to cross the river and then we made hiding places for the littlest goat to escape the troll!

This week we mysteriously received a letter from a pirate whose ship had been sunk by a scary sea monster!  We drew pictures showing what we thought the monster might look like and even added written labels using our good knowledge of letters and sound-talking!

PE on Tuesday had a pirate theme too, with a team race to collect treasure and a walking the plank game.

We are looking forward to more pirate activities taking us up to the end of Term 5…

We have really enjoyed our Term 3 topic “Did Dragons Exist?”.  Over the last couple of weeks we have been using non-fiction books and the internet to find out about real reptiles and today we were lucky enough to welcome Jeanette from Wild Creature Features and some of her scaly friends!  We loved seeing, and touching a Bearded Dragon and an enormous Royal Python!
