Chinese New Year!


Today in RSJ we have been learning all about China and Chinese New Year. We have enjoyed making paper chain dragons and masks, food tasting and helping to create a large Chinese Dragon!



Freezing and Melting!


Today in RSJ, we have been learning all about freezing and melting. We created some coloured and some clear ice cubes and then explored what happened to them when we took them out of the freezer.


We talked about why the water had turned into ice and what would happen to it once it came out of the freezer into our nice warm classroom. The children had some great ideas and we soon discovered that it would melt!

The children explored the melting ice and somebody suggested to see what would happen if we poured warm water on to the ice cubes. We had a race to see which would melt faster, the ice cubes with warm water poured onto them or the ice cubes with cold water poured onto them. The children predicted the ones with warm water on them would be gone sooner and they were right!

Well done children! Perhaps you could explore some more melting and freezing at home?


Children in Need


Today we have been leaning all about Children in Need. The children enjoyed creating their own Pudsey Bear faces and pictures and learnt all about some of the things that their kind donations will go towards.


Welcome to RSJ!


The children have had lots of fun setting into their new class over the past couple of weeks.

They have been learning the new rules and routines for the school day and have been exploring the different areas in their new classroom.


It has been lovely getting to know everybody and the children have begun to make some new friends!
