We were really lucky on Thursday to have Mr Galvin come into school and show us some science experiments. He made rainbow colours, mini explosions, clouds and he launched rockets!
The children had so much fun and really enjoyed seeing some of the experiments in real life.
Adding to our plant topic, we have decided to place seeds in zip lock bags and place them in different places to compare how much they germinate. We put a bag in a cupboard, on the window and outside. We will let you know the results!
Pack your suitcase with Paddington Bear!
Our A-Z of authors display in our class reading areas are filling up with recommendations from the Year 2 children. The children and teachers have loved hearing about new authors and why they stand out. Keep them coming!
We now want to add some 'Reading Rivers' to describe everything Paddington Bear might read on a journey. For example, he could read a marmalade jar, a train ticket, a newspaper, street signs and the list goes on!
Please take a look at the instructions on your google classroom pages for more information. We know many of our Year 2 children love both being creative and reading, so we can't wait to see your wonderful 'Reading River' suitcases!
Star Science Writers!
In science this week children completed some independent writing to explain what they can see happening to this plant. The used fantastic knowledge of what plants need to grow and included some advanced scientific vocabulary.
This week 4 Larch finished their drawings based on the artist Romero Britto. They were amazing!
In year 5 this week, all three classes were able to take part in an interactive workshop around the play Hamlet by William Shakespeare.
In Aspen and Hawthorn, this meant going to the upper hall and working together to reenact the play. For Alder, this took place online but was still great fun.
We have finished our carnival floats this week - we hope you like them.
