We went out to check on our plot today and found that our radishes and spinach was ready for picking. We washed the spinach and had a taste. It was delicious!

Every day in the Rose Class we have DEAR time. DEAR, or 'drop everything and read' is an allotted time in the day where everyone gets their book to read for 10 sustained, focussed minutes. As the weather was so nice today, we took our books outside to read before we went to PE with Larry!
This week we have been learning about the Titanic. In history we listened to the story of the ship from the ship yard to the disaster in the Atlantic. In art we discussed sea pollution, waterproofing and buoyancy and designed and made floating, waterproof boats from plastic bottles, duct tape and cardboard. In geography we looked at global climates and discussed how the Titanic must have been travelling in a sub polar area in order to collide with an ice berg.
