On Monday, we read a book called "Wishy-Washy Tractor." It is about how Mrs Wishy-Washy got stuck in the mud with her tractor. The cow, the duck and the pig were her heroes because they saved the day - they helped her get the tractor out of the mud.

I asked the children if we could be hereos - we didn't think we could!

We made a list of all of the things that we know heroes have and do. Check out our list...

 -save the day
 -do kung fu
 -fight baddies
 -save people
 -wear gloves
 -wear a mask
 -wear a cape
 -save the world
 -run fast
 -have guns
 -ride on things
 -have cars
 -do magic
 -run on ice
 -play with fire
 -have bow and arrows
 -change into something else

 We then went through the list to see which characteristics applied to the pig, the cow and the duck... NOT MANY!

Here is our new list...

 - They saved the day
 - They saved people (Mrs Wishy-Washy)
 - They helped someone

We decided that we could do that too! We don't have to have a mask and a cape to be a hero!

Chalk vs Pastel

Our second big science experiment has been great! We compared the properties of chalk and pastel. The sharing of ideas has been amazing and what observant children we have at RSS!
