We looked at the amount of sugar we need to eat each day and what foods we can find it in. We learned that we need between 16 and 20 grams of sugar per day. We weighed 16 grams of sugar, put it in a clear plastic bag and then compared it to the amount of sugar in some popular foods. It was shocking to see that some popular foods contain the recommended daily allowance of sugar in one serving!

We spent a week learning about weather. We looked at the different types of weather and the ways we can describe the sky. We questioned where the water that falls in our school grounds goes and made predictions about it. We then explored, investigated and recorded and communicated our findings.

In our first week, we learned about butterflies! If you ask us we can tell you all about them. What they look like, what they eat and how they come from cocoons and caterpillars. We made colourful butterflies in art and you can see them on our door.
