Philosophical Question to finish the day! 

Yesterday's Q:  Would you rather be water or soil? Why? 

Miss Martin: I think I would rather be water. I love being in water, but I also think it's incredible how without water, life would cease to exist! I also love the idea that water has a story (may or may not have taken that from Frozen II) and it's a fact that most water has passed through multiple species already... 

Miss Chapman: Water.. imagine all the places I could go/see! I'm not really a fan of the texture of soil its mushy, crumbly and gets stuck under the peoples nails and in shoes! 

Mrs Hudson:  

Today's Q:  Would you like to visit Egypt? Why or why not?  


Have a great evening and join us on Monday for some more exciting learning :)
