What an amazing WOW day today, in Year 4. Children made slime, explosions and all sorts of other creative science experiments.
Yesterday, Y5 had a visit from St John’s Ambulance and learned basic first aid strategies. They looked at the importance of ABC and even had chance to have a go at applying bandages and deal with some minor (fake!) injuries.
A little bit of torrential rain didn’t stop the happy smiles of our team greeting the children on their way into school this morning!
Today, Year 3 have learned just how gruesome the Ancient Egyptians were. They have had the opportunity to experience the process of mummification and created their own mummified tomatoes.
The children will be observing what happens to the tomatoes over the coming weeks to gain a better understanding of the mummification process.
Although our Sports Day this year is very different to what we had planned and hoped for, the children have thoroughly enjoyed competing in houses to earn house points and potentially the highly regarded House Cup.
A range of events were set up in the playground for the children to apply the different skills that they have learned throughout the year in P.E lessons.
All children participated showing respect and sportsmanship to one another. Well done to everyone for your enthusiasm and encouragement towards each other.
Keep an eye out on the blog as we will be posting all the results here.
Mr Bayston has been busy… Today, we received an amazing selection of sports equipment.
All of this fantastic equipment has been purchased due to a grant that Mr Bayston successfully applied for. We are looking forward to using the equipment in our P.E lessons. Good work Mr Bayston!
Today, we had a lovely surprise delivery from The Book Fairies. We now have a copy of the ‘Shoe Wars’ by Liz Pichon to add to our library collection for the children to enjoy. Thank you so much to our book fairy!
Read the blurb and see whether you might like to read it…
One vile villain. Two courageous children. The gadget- packed shoes of your EPIC dreams. Welcome to Shoe Town, where Wendy Wedge runs the show. She’ll do ANYTHING to win the glitzy Golden Shoe Award and knows that entering flying shoes is her hot ticket to the trophy. Flying shoes that brother and sister Bear and Ruby Foot just HAPPEN to be hiding… This can only mean one thing.
It’s SHOE WARS.
Some great learning experiences have been taking place in Year 6 this week. Pupils have designed and made lighthouses as part of their Design and Technology. In Science, pupils have dissected owl pellets as part of their ‘Darwin’s Delights’ topic. They have looked at owl adaptations and identified prey that the owls may have eaten.
Year 6 have had a fabulous WOW day today immersing themselves in the Victorian era. The children blew us away with the effort that had gone into their Victorian costumes. We had suffragettes, chimney sweeps, maids, children from the work house and even masters and some ladies!
Throughout the day, the children completed a range of activities to develop their understanding of this very important time in British history. They created Queen Victoria pictures made up of facts about the time and traditional silhouette portraits. To end the day, the children watched a Hobgoblin performance of Workhouse Boy.
