Our boys really enjoy using the whiteboards to do their writing
After reading our story the afternoon children asked how the diver in the story could write underwater. We wasn't sure of the answer so we decided to do an experiment to see if we could find out how she did it.
We googled it to see if that gave us any ideas, then we were ready for the challenge!
So then we decided we would have to try and find out for ourselves. First we had to choose if we wanted to use a whiteboard or paper, then we picked what we would like to write with.
Then Mrs Shelton filled some trays with water and we all had a go to see if what we had chosen would work
We found out that the paper went soggy and ripped and nothing would work on the whiteboards, however the chalk worked for a little bit before the paper ripped.
As the chalk worked a little bit we decided to use a blackboard so Isabelle gave it a go

We made our own ' Magic Pond '
We have painted Bog Baby pictures in the style of our artist Ivy Hayes
Summer 1 : Topic - Growing
Today has been 'Growth Day', we have been doing activities to help look after ourselves and things that make us happy. We have danced, done Mindful Stretching, painted in the style of our artist Yayoi Kusama, checked on how our flowers and vegetables are growing and enjoyed playing in the sunshine.
