Red Nose Day – Class 1

Famous Artists – Class 1

We have been inspired by the artwork of Guiseppe Arcimboldo, Wassily Kandinsky and Georgia O’Keefe.  We have produced some fantastic works of art.

British Science Week – Class 1

Class 1 have been hunting for mini-beasts around the school site and creating habitats for them.

Red Nose Day – Class 2

We’ve had a great Red Nose Day!

We learn’t a little bit about Comic Relief and designed our own red noses.

Here’s what a couple of children wrote about the day:

“Red nose day is a charity day when people give other people clothes and food so that they have a better life” – Beau

“On Red Nose Day it raises money for people in need” – Lacey

Condover Trip

After school yesterday, I showed the current Year 4’s and their parents this video about Condover.

If you have any questions about the Condover residential, please do not hesitate to contact me.

British Science Week – Class 4 and 5

Today in Class 4 and yesterday in Class 5, we looked at the causes of pollution in the UK. We had 2 samples of water: A was from a pond in the countryside and B was from a puddle near a main road. Everyone practiced using a pipette to add the reagent to each sample. Sample B turned black/brown because the reagent reacted with the pollutant.

The children enjoyed using the scientific equipment.

Science and Cooking in Class 3

Class 3 have had an action packed day of cooking and Science.

We split into two groups for the afternoon and while one group made and tasted their own pasta dishes, the other group investigated mini-beasts using magnifying glasses before we swapped. We also all made our own paper aeroplane to investigate the effects of air resistance.

A fantastic day Class 3.

British Science Week – Class 2 – Journeys through nature – Bees!

Today Class 2 have started looking at the journeys that bumble bees take!

We learnt all about their important jobs and that they have become endangered!

We started making our bee feeders which will be coming home as well as being place din our school grounds! They can be filled with sugar water on cotton wool or bits of older fruit for the bees to taste. They should be put out in gardens anytime from June.

National Science Week in Class 3

To kick off National Science Week, all members of class 3 have planted their own seeds. As well as investigating what plants need to grow well, we have also planted some where we have changed variables including light, temperature and water.

We are looking forward to seeing the results!

Science Week – Class 1

Today in Class 1 we investigated friction! We used a friction trick to get the monkey to climb up the string. The rubbing of the string against the straw generates enough friction to keep the monkey from falling down. Have fun trying this at home!
