Does Change Affect Us? How and Why?

This term we are working to answer the BIG question 'Does change affect us? How and Why?

We have begun this week by talking about what change is and what changes happen. Here are some of our initial ideas ...

  • Cars can change to use no petrol - Thomas
  • Cars can change gears - Ben
  • You can try new ideas and change what you do - Paige
  • You can change your personality - Cash
  • You can change your attitude - Lucy
  • Your top can change from clean to dirty - Charlie
  • Your sandwich can change when you put different things in it - Liam
  • You can change your hairstyle - Brody
  • You get older - Campbell
  • Motorbikes can change when you change the tyres - Toby
  • Bread changes when you put it in the toaster - Carter
  • Your confidence can change - Isaac
  • You can change your room by painting it - Isabelle
  • You can change your clothes - Bella
  • Bananas can change from fresh to rotten - Kaiden
  • You can change what you like e.g. from Marvel to DC - Max C
  • You can change your voice - Blake
  • You can change how thick and thin your hair is or the length - Esther
  • Water can change to ice - Zara
  • Our blood pressure can change - Arden
  • You can change your undies! - Mrs Olynsma

We then worked in groups on a classifying activity. We had a bunch of pictures and we had to group them into three groups. Check these out ...

Our three groups were cute, yummy and weird - Isabelle, Paige and Zara

Our groups were water, food and other - Arden, Max H and Cooper

Our groups were drinks, steam and nature - Lucy, Hailey and Esther

We had summer stuff, home stuff and nature - Bella, Kaiden and Carter

We had; water in and around them, feet go with them and shapes - Isaac, Liam and Toby

Our groups were chemicals, water and wild life - Charlie, Thomas and Lucas

Our groups were nature, human stuff and steam - Campbell, Cash and Ben

Our three groups were earth equipment, food and animals - Max C, Brody and Blake
Finally, we talked about three words - solid, liquid and gas and then had a go at reorganising our pictures. As a class here is our final verdict ...
At the moment we think that solids, liquids and gases are ...
  • Liquids are a sort of chemical - Toby
  • Gas can be air - Campbell
  • Solids are bendy and hard - Bella
  • You can't break a solid - Arden
  • Liquids can spread - Isaac
  • Gas is something that is grey and that is smokey - Esther
  • Some gas can be hot - Blake
  • I think farts are gas - Brody
  • Gas is hard for people to breathe in - Paige
  • Bottles have liquid in that can turn into gas - Zara
  • I think burps are gas - Liam
  • I think poop is a solid - Max H
  • I think wee is a liquid - Isabelle

Keep your eyes on the blog because you will see our thinking changing as we learn about our BIG question!

A celebration of 100 days at school.

Today we have been at school for 100 days this year! 
We spent some time with our buddy class using an aging app to see what we will look like when we get older. The results are not all that encouraging!!!
