Great excitement ensued on Monday as we carried out a science investigation involving ‘gummy bears’ – we put three in a cup of water for four days. Before we put them in to the water, we held them up to the window to see how much light shone through. We also looked at how big the bears were and decided that they were “very small”, “tiny” as well as “squishy” and “yummy”. Next, we made predictions about what we thought might happen to the bears. On Friday, we looked and were amazed to find that the bears in the water had “grown” and had gone “see through” losing all of their colour.
We have enjoyed acting out the story in our cottage role-play area, making porridge and feeding the bears. We also used the finger puppets to act out the story in a group whilst our teacher read it; there were some great bear and Goldilocks voices! We used brown and black paint to create our own bear portraits. We had fun playing with and measuring porridge oats in the tuff tray – we pretended to make porridge just like in the story. We also had fun making and playing with porridge playdough!
We enjoyed celebrating World Book Day in our fantastic costumes and reading our letters that our families wrote to us about their favourite story books. Through the day, we had great fun reading lots of different stories, making books and book marks.
