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!
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!
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.
Another fantastic set of book recommendations shared today in Celebration assembly. Give them a try! You may find a new, favourite read!
Year 4 have produced some fantastic work linked to their topic, ‘Tremors.’ They have produced some beautiful collages using vibrant colours, in the style of Andy Warhol. The have also learned about fossil formation and different types of rocks in their Science lessons.
This week’s Celebration assembly was the first time we shared some of our book recommendations. Mrs Rowe recommends Harry Potter and Mrs Williams recommends Jack Stalwart: Secret Agent. We also have recommendations from Megan in Y6 and Farshtia in Y5:
