Today we had a visit from Helen from the Mad Science team. We had lots of fun learning about air pressure and forces. Helen will be running a club at our school – details to follow!
Today we carried it an experiment about gravity. We dropped objects from above be the tables and timed how long they took to land on the floor. Most of us predicted that it would be the heaviest object, but we found that actually they hit at almost exactly the same time.
Today we went to church and learnt about Epiphany. Thank you to the ministry team for their hard work and support. Well done to all the children for their beautiful singing, reading and leading the prayers!
Yesterday we braved the cold to practise word classes. We used sentences drawn on the playground to identify nouns, verbs, adverbs and adjectives. When Mr Salmon called out a word class we had to go and stand on the correct word. In class we changed these words to change the meaning of the sentence.
Today was the first of ten workshops with Amy from The Big Sing. We all had a great time! Please look out for details of our performance on 21st March.
Yesterday we continued learning our French by singing Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes in French! Then we designed and drew aliens and labelled their body parts. Next we played Guess Who with aliens. We had to say the number and body parts in French. Here are the aliens we were playing with.
This afternoon we used the marbling inks to make constellations and planets to use in our topic display.
Today we made chocolate crispie cakes! We are looking forward to eating them later on today…
Last week we wrote Our own version of Oliver Jeffers’ Lost and Found using only the pictures to guide us. This week we got the watercolours out and recreated some of the illustrations from the story. We practised creating a colour wash over a large area. Here are some of our pictures.
Today Canon Paul led our Christmas assembly. We thought about Jesus and the true meaning of Christmas.
