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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
