An update on the latest....
Our Science investigation on 'The different ways in which toys can move'

As a follow-up activity from week 6's big book; 'Toys can move', we organised a science oriented toy day in our class on Friday 2/6/17. " This is so cool," said Lance. 
" I love doing science because it is learning by playing," said Uzair.
Every child brought in a toy that could move in some way, from home. They sorted their toys into various groups and shared their reasoning as to why they put a particular toy in a group.

Then they made predictions on how each toy could move before actually trialling it out.

Our predictions were:
We think toys can move by:-  
                1. pushing forwards/ backwards 
                2. pulling
                3. spinning
                4. turning it around

But we found some other ways in which our toys could move. These are:
                1. twisting and winding
                2. rolling
                3.  swinging
                4. bouncing

It was  funny when Mrs Kumar brought a green toy truck and thought it would move if we pushed it forward but it didn't. She discovered that she had to push it backwards to make it go forward at a high speed. We all laughed and laughed...Room 3
