What have we been doing in Sunflowers this week?
World Book Day 2018: Do you recognise any of your favourite book characters? The Sunflowers loved dressing up for World Book Day and were very brave standing up in front of the whole school in assembly to talk about their costumes!

Big Science 2018: The Sunflowers enjoyed investigating how to make a 'mouse' fly like a rocket into the air. We decided to use milk bottles and investigated the efficiency of different-sized bottles, measuring how high the mice flew. The children produced some brilliant writing about the experiment and some of the Sunflowers and Rainbows were able to present their posters about it to groups of children from around the school on Big Science Day. We even showed some video clips filmed by the children of the mice launches!
Space Day - Thursday 8th February. Playing 'Stuck in the Moon' and enjoying Mars and Moon space snacks. Just look at our awesome space costumes!

Sunflowers enjoy working together!
The Sunflowers really enjoyed our second Nature Detectives walk to Bury Knowle Park. We spotted lots of long-tailed tit nests in the trees on our walk through the park and listened to their bird call. Mrs Faye showed us a blackbird's nest from her garden and we carefully observed how it was made. Then, we had a go at making our own nests from all of the natural materials on the ground. Some of us even tested them out!
After out Nature Detectives walk to Bury Knowle Park, we watched this BBC Learning clip for more ideas of how the world around us changes during autumn. You can share this together at home. Keep a look out for the sleeping harvest mouse at the end!
Our first Nature Detectives walk to Bury Knowle Park - Exploring the space and autumnal changes. It is tricky to take photos when you are hiding conkers like squirrels!
