Springtime funπŸ”πŸ₯š

 

 

This week the children in the Oakroom have been learning more about Spring and the changes that happen in our environment at this time. On Wednesday Gemma kindly let us visit her garden where she has chickens and ducks that have laid eggs! The children were super excited to learn that soon there would be baby ducks hatching. We then walked back down Balmaccan Road and picked up some duck eggs. The children decided that they would like to use the eggs to bake some cakes. In the afternoon we watched a video about flowers and plants. The children were learning what plants need to grow and survive and the names for different parts of the plant.

“A stem, that holds the flower up” -Skye

“You put a seed in the ground and the sun come and it grows. I forgot what else they need” -Brodie

“The leaf helps feed the flower from the ground.” -Saffiye

“The bee will get covered in nectar when it goes into the flower.” -Freya R

 

On Thursday we baked some cupcakes with the duck eggs we had collected, the children compared a duck egg to a chicken egg and soon realised there were differences between the two

“The chicken egg is smaller than the duck eggs. The duck egg is heavier.” -Maggie

“The duck egg is white. The white egg is bigger.” -Abel

“A chicken egg is brown” -Freya L

“Duck egg is bigger, a chicken egg is smaller” -Maya

When the cakes were ready, the children did the final taste test! The cupcakes got the thumbs up and were definitely enjoyed by all of the children. We then made a chart and used stampers to display what we thought of our cakes! Big shoutout to Gemma for letting us visit her gardenπŸ’•
