It was wonderful to see so many friends and families at our RE assembly this morning! Thank you to everyone who came – the children were very proud to show you their wonderful work. It was great to see how much each class has been learning, and their hard work was presented in creative and memorable ways.
Some Michael Rosen poems that link nicely with our Science unit this term!
Today we started our exciting new chemistry unit. We investigated how much “Urine” nappies could hold before becoming wet/damp. The children mixed the hydrogel from the nappies with water and recored various kinds of data.
Check out the pictures taken today.
Can anyone remember what chemical reaction occurred?
We had a fantastic day with our bauble decorating workshops. Here are some pictures of the first group with year 4.
As part of the Into Film Festival, Years 3 and 4 went to watch a documentary at the Odeon cinema. It was called ‘A Beautiful Planet’, and filmed by astronauts from the International Space Station. It was amazing to see how they lived, what they observed and how our planet is changing. What was the best fact you picked up?
On Monday our investigation question was ‘why do elephants spray water on their bodies?’
We carried out an investigation to find out whether ‘elephant’s blood’ would be cooler when their skin was dry or cold. To do this, we put water into two beakers and wrapped one in a dry paper towel and the other in a wet paper towel. We then recorded our results.
Do you think cup 1 (dry paper towel) or cup 2 (wet paper towel) was colder? Can you explain your answer?
Have a look at our video from Wednesday’s workshops with Google Expeditions. It was an amazing experience to go exploring the Earth (and body) from the comfort of our school hall. Some of our reactions are priceless!
Yesterday we went to Toxteth Library. Liz Weir the author told us some good stories like Boom Chicka Boom and other really interesting stories. She also told us about when she met Roald Dahl and when her mother told her stories when there was nothing to watch. Liz also told us a funny story about a cheeky toddler and stories from different countries and she told us a story about a bully who had no friends because everyone feared him.

We are so excited to be here at Hope University working with the education students on our science skills! We are learning about classification, viscosity and chemical reactions! It’s great hearing our pupils tell the student how much they love science and want to be scientists in the future! O
