This half term, Chestnuts have been learning all about the importance of the digestive system in humans and our teeth. We decided to find out which drinks would cause the most tooth decay. We conducted an investigation by using hard boiled eggs in different liquids and we observed how they changed. We were surprised to find orange juice caused a lot of damage to the egg and we thought this may be because of the acid in it as well as the natural sugars. Water and milk were the best liquids we investigated.
As well as working hard academically, Chestnuts have also enjoyed being outdoors. They’ve been exploring lots of different places such as the beach, Hadrian’s wall and Jesmond Dene. On VE Day, Chestnuts enjoyed their own celebrations and afternoon teas. Some of them have even been litter picking, camping in the garden, fishing, seeing the 4:30am sunrise and strawberry picking. Well done Chestnuts!
Chestnuts have been working incredibly hard at home since lock down started back in March. They have been working through their work packs, creating some amazing art work, bringing their learning to life by planting and studying plants, researching their own projects and learning some life skills such as baking. They have been absolute stars.
As part of our Volcanoes and Earthquakes Geography topic the children spent the afternoon working in pairs to paint their paper mache volcanoes. They studied photographs of real life volcanoes and used their knowledge of the subject and their Art skills to paint their own volcanoes.
