We have been finding out how our muscles help us move. We made a model of our arm using balloons and parts of a construction kit. We found out our muscles work in pairs to make us move. Can you explain to an adult how they work? Remember to use the words, bicep, tricep, contract and extend!

We looked at the food labels on these drinks to see how much sugar there was in them. We had to make sure it was fair so we looked at 1 litre amounts. The amount of sugar was measured in grams. In the photo we used sugar cubes ( 5 grams each) to show the results.
We were most surprised by the amount of sugar in apple juice!

Happy New Year!
The last two days has seen us
- planning and writing a recount about our Christmas Day
- thinking about a gift we each could give the world that would make it a better place
- exploring place value using base 10 apparatus
- and finally comparing numbers up to 1000.
Next week we have a NO Pen Day to look forward to as well as beginning our class reader George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl. If your child has a copy of the book it would be great if they could bring it in BUT please put their name inside.
