Dissection

Many thanks to Dr Gemmell who supported in Year 6 with their ‘Blood Heart’ topic this afternoon. The pupils were captivated at the live dissection of the heart and learned a huge amount about the role of this organ in the human body’s circulatory system.

Science

There have been a lot of science experiments taking place this week. Year 3 are finding out what happens to flowers and plants when placed into coloured water whilst Year 5 have dissected tulips. In Year 6, the children have taken apart owl pellets in order to investigate the diet of owls. Great hands on learning!

Homework

We are constantly amazed at the standard of homework that comes into school and were again wowed at the incredible models that are now on display having been created over the Christmas holidays. Year 4 have produced mountains, Year 5 wardrobes inspired by the Chronicles of Narnia and Year 6 Anderson shelters.

Tank Museum

On Friday the Year 6 pupils visited the Tank Museum in relation to their World War II topic. As well as viewing a variety of tanks and visiting the trenches experience, pupils also participated in workshops about the Blitz, the home front, evacuation and D-day.

Heads and Deputies

Congratulations to our new Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Girl and Deputy Head Boy. This year’s selection process required the children to write a letter of interest in the positions, before attending a short interview with Mrs Williams and Mrs Taylor. Everyone who applied for the roles should be extremely proud of themselves; it was incredibly hard to pick from the range of amazing applicants putting themselves forward.
