small tails

little fish

a big whale

tiny starfish

long tentacles

The one in water hasn’t changed. Poppy


After 5 days in liquid, we took them out and noticed the egg that had been in vinegar felt rubbery… a bit like a bouncy ball.

We tested to see if the egg would bounce…

As we move into summer, we have been discussing ways to stay safe in the sun.

Take some time to talk about different ways to keep safe in the sun.

You may choose to make a sun safely poster or list.
