We have been extremely busy in Brilliant Beavers yet again this week, we had a wonderful time learning about rhythm in our music lesson and used our bodies to create the percussion for a song called "the drum". In PE we have continued to look at tennis and how our control of the ball enables us to be successful when playing against a partner. We also thought a lot about mental health this week especially during our mellow yellow day! We discussed the different ways we can look after our mental health, such as: exercise, meditation, colouring, telling jokes and talking with a friend. We have done all this and much more!
We have had an incredibly busy week in Brilliant Beavers, we have continued exploring Alchemy Island and helping the Alchemist solve the troubles which plague his island. We looked closely at reversible at reversible and irreversible changes as well as soluble and insoluble solutes. We all loved getting to melt the chocolate and bake our own cakes in the classroom. This week we also focused on our word of the week "Tenacious" which we endeavoured not only to use in our writing but to also be in our attitude to our work. We had aother Brilliant week here in Beavers!
We have continued to travel across Alchemy Island this week in Brilliant Beavers and have encountered multiple wondrous challenges. On Monday we worked on designing a circuit we could use to help us light our way across the terrain. On Wednesday we were ready to plot our journey, so we used the co-ordinates left from the Alchemist and worked hard to decide our route across Alchemy Island. Om Friday we had an exciting time trekking across Alchemy Island where we found Gold Rush Mountain. We LOVED getting the mountain to explode for us and enjoyed testing out our own reaction experiments.
We have had an incredibly exciting week in Brilliant Beavers. On Monday we had a surprise visit from an Alchemist who had travelled from Alchemy Island to our school to urge us to help him save Alchemy Island. He left us with a box of samples and a riddle to help us begin our quest. We have all thoroughly enjoyed solving the Alchemists riddles and challenges and can't wait to see what fun adventures we will have next week as we continue to travel across Alchemy Island.
It was great to see all of Brilliant Beavers in our classroom with smiles on their faces ready to learn this week! We have really enjoyed being back at school and starting our new topic Alchemy Island. We have done lots of getting to know you activities across all subject areas and have really focused on our school RESPECT rules. We are already super excited for next week and all the fun we know lies ahead of us this half term.
