Welcome To Pines!

This is our page where we will be sharing all of our wonderful work.

Pines having a buzzing time.

On 29th June Pines were invited to visit Priestly Smith School. We met a man who is a Bee Keeper. The Bee Keeper told us some interesting facts like: The female Bees do all the work and in the Winter they throw out all the male bees. When the male bees are chucked out, they freeze to death!

At the end they let us have snacks made out of honey. Before we left the Bee Keeper let us see some of the bees that he keeps.

It was a very good day indeed.

An afternoon of science fun.

"Today (12/5/16) in Science we made some irreversible experiments using Bicarbonate of Soda, Vinegar and Lemon Juice.

It was fun seeing how each material reacted when mixed together.

My favorite was when the Bicarbonate of Soda and vinegar was mixed together, because it frothed up so much. It was really fun." stated Meghan.

Ellie said "This afternoon we did several Science experiments.

We used materials to make a chemical reaction.

We worked together to find out what is reversible and irreversible.

It was a lovely afternoon of science fun. I wish we could do it again."

Looking at Ordnance Survey Maps.

Jennifer said " I have really enjoyed topic today, because I have learnt about map symbols. However it was not any map but an ordnance survey map. This is what explorers use.  I thought it was really amazing how you can tell where you are from a map."

Abi said "Today we  we looked and learnt about maps. We looked at symbols. It was good."

The children have been working hard at home researching famous Brummies!

Jennifer came into the classroom after all of us . She didn't talk to anyone. The whole day she hid behind her hands . On the playground , she just played by herself . I tried to ask her to play but she just ran away. I don't know why . - Meghan
