We spent a whole day on a strand of our Science topic, which is Forces & Motion, this term.  We investigated wind!  We shared two stories, Follow The Kite by Anna Nilsen and Mark Burgess and The Blue Balloon by Mick Inkpen.  We watched a Come Outside programme with Pippin and Auntie Mabel called A Windy Day. We flew a kite, blew bubbles, had fun with balloons, made windmills and played Blow Football.  We learnt so much in such a practical way.
