Spring Term 2017

Welcome back to school after the indulgent Christmas holidays! Lots of us were very lucky and got what we wanted from Santa.
As well as following the whole school topic of 'knowledge is power' we also like to learn through the seasons and when we talk about winter we always talk about frost, snow and ice. We did experience frost on the first day of term which made us very excited about winter. Alas, we have not had any snow or ice! We had to improvise to make snowmen (see if you can guess what we used from the pictures). To help us learn more about the effects of cold and ice and freezing we had to enlist the help of a freezer! It really helped us learn that ice is frozen water and when you make it warm or put salt on it it melts and turns to water again. It also makes your hands quite cold and you might need gloves!!
