Biscuit dunking experiment!

We had great fun today dunking biscuits in warm water to discover which would the best biscuit for our tea. 

We were excited to test out our predictions... who would be correct?!

We made sure that we dunked the biscuit the same way each time and for the same amount of time. 

Teddy: "It was epic" we observed carefully and started to notice when the biscuit lost it's structure but continued until the final drop...

Surprisingly, in 2 Magritte the rich tea biscuit won! Managing a grand total of 92 dunks before it finally broke. 2 Kahlo and 2 Maurice's pink wafers were the strongest by far!

We presented our findings on a table and tomorrow we will learn how to accurately draw and present a bar graph for our results!

Helping at Home

Ways to help at home

  • Read every day
  • Practise your spellings and common exception words
  • As you read spot the sounds in words, can you find digraphs (two letters that make one sound) and trigraphs (three letters that make one sound)?
  • Count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards
  • Learn your number bonds for all numbers to 20 (e.g number bonds to 7 are 1+6, 2+5, 3+4, etc.)
  • Practise telling the time to the hour, quarter past, half past, quarter to and as an extra challenge to 5 minute intervals (five past, ten past etc.)
  • Practise letter formation using the correct pencil grip and develop fine motor skills (peg pressing, picking pasta shells/rice with tweezers)
