Round and Round We Go
This term's theme is Round and Round We Go where we will be learning about circles, circuits and cycles.
Our key questions which we will be focusing on this term are:
How do circles make things work?
How have people used circles to make a difference to the world?
How do circles help us to understand life and living things?
We have started off the theme investigating electricity. We have had great fun trying to make circuits.
We had to think which electrical components we would need. We found out that to make a simple circuit with one lightbulb we would need:
- a battery
- a battery holder
- a lightbulb
- a lightbulb holder
- two wires with crocodile clips.
- How can we make the lightbulb shine brighter?
- How can we light up two lightbulbs in the same circuit?
We investigated and discovered how:

Having seen pizza-making in action at Scoozi's restaurant and designing our own balanced pizzas, it was time to set about making them.
First, we measured out the ingredients ...
Then we mixed the ingredients together with a wooden spoon until they were all combined ...
Then it was time to knead the dough ...
When the dough was soft and pliable we put it back into the mixing bowl, covered it with cling-film and left it outside in the heat to prove (rise) ...
Meanwhile, it was time to prepare our toppings ...
After about 45 minutes, we were all amazed to see how the dough had risen and doubled in size ...
Now it was time to prepare our pizza-base, using what we had learned in our demonstration at Scoozi's ...
With the base prepared, it was time to add our topping, trying to stick to our design ...
At last our pizza were ready to be cooked ...
Some of them were shaped like faces, ...
... some were patterns ...
... and some were random, ...
... but we all agreed that they tasted good!
Well done, 2W!
On Monday we visited Scoozi's, a restaurant specialising in pizza, to watch a pizza being made and sample their wonderful pizzas.
It was interesting watching the chefs at work and see how they get the pizza to be so thin, large and round - without using a rolling pin.
The pizza tasted wonderful and we all enjoyed our visit.
Thank you, Scoozi's. We really enjoyed our visit.
