Ranger Rose visits Class 4

Class 4 were lucky to have 'Ranger Rose' come in this afternoon to share her knowledge about the local habitat. Although the workshop was based around habitats, the interests of the children diverted the discussion to focus on hedgehogs and badgers in particular...always great when the children are passionate about a topic and ask question after question. 😀 [...]

Pollination in class 4

Class 4 have been investigating how bees pollinate flowers and representing it using cotton wool buds, drama and....'Wotsits' ;-) We used cotton wool buds to search for pollen around the field. We used our fingers to represent bee's legs and 'dived' into the Wotsits and took the pollen (cheese bits) to another flower. Children also took on [...]

Memory Skills in Class 3

For the first part of the morning we talked about ways that we could improve our working memories.

Science with a Comic Relief Theme

We talked about how some people in the world don't have access to clean water and how Comic Relief money can help. We decided to see if we could use what we have learned about filtering and separating mixtures to get clean(er) water. We found out that although cotton wool pads were the most effective material we used to filter, [...]

Comic Relief 2017

Class 4 spent time thinking (and writing) about Comic Relief. One diary entry was written from viewpoint of a girl who had been helped by Comic Relief. It started by saying "Dear Diary, I'm writing to you because I'm fed up, fed up of being like a ball, passed round and round without feeling better or getting help" and ended, [...]

🔬🔬 Lots of experimenting in class 4 🔬🔬

We had a great time in science today exploring different solids to see if they dissolved in water. We then started to think about whether we had worked scientifically to make our test fair. Lots of great discussions and most importantly lots of smiling, enthusiastic children 😀

📚📚 Reading Roundabout 📚📚

Class 4 have been working with Mrs Andrews to choose new library books for school. There were lots of great discussions and we are going to have some fantastic new books to read 😀  

🇨🇳 Happy New Year 🇨🇳

A massive thank you to Cass for coming in all day to cook Chinese biscuits called kueh bangkit that are eaten at New Year. At lunch time we were treated to a Chinese menu-thank you to Keri and [...]
