A super fun last week!

Class 9 did it again, winning the attendance trophy ☺. They did lots of art work, ate icecream and enjoyed the lovely end of school year spirit. Have a fantastic holiday children, you have been great 🌞

Transition…

Class 9 have had a fab fun week doing many varied activities in class and have really enjoyed their transition lessons getting to know the children in their new classes for September. They have continued to create fantastic brilliant Britain models for homework like Stonehenge and Big Ben seen here.

 

Super Scientists!

In our science lessons this week, we have been investigating electricity and building circuits. We used equipment that you could find at home to make a bulb light up. Instead of using just wires, we tried out replacing the wires with kitchen foil, which worked nicely as it conducts electricity well! We took the bulbs out of old torches and used ordinary batteries.
We found out that using two batteries made the bulbs brighter, and using two bulbs with one battery only dimly lit the bulbs. We also learnt how to draw simple circuit diagrams. Great teamwork led to a fun afternoon of learning!

Bubblethon!!

After all our efforts with assessments, we managed to earn a class ‘Bubblethon’ reward! We had lots of fun blowing, catching and chasing bubbles! A very different ‘P. E.’ Lesson! It was lovely to see the children having lots of fun after their hard work over the past few weeks!

While the Year 3s were away …..

The Year 4s had great fun while the Year 3s went off swimming on Monday afternoon looking at Fauvism and recreating the iconic London Bridge in an expressive, unrealistic way. Fauvism derives from the French language ‘Les Fauves’ meaning ‘the wild beasts’; the Fauves used strong colours and brushstrokes in a painterly, exciting, wild way.

Well done Class 9 for getting the KS2 trophy for last week’s attendance, keep up the good work!

Super Scientists!

Class 7 have been experimenting with shadows. We used different objects to create shadows, and tested to see what happened when we moved the light source closer and further away. We found out that shadows got larger when the light was closer to the object, and that translucent materials did not make solid shadows. We also learnt that shadows can be coloured if light shines through coloured materials.

Class 9 have worked very hard learning about time this week…

…converting from analogue to digital and vice versa. They have improved their use of verbs in literacy and experimented with torches, shadow and light in science. The children found the rubik cube fascinating, brought in by one child for show and tell.
