Today, we used challenge cards to make 2D shapes from lollipop sticks. We are developing our knowledge of the properties of shapes, such as the number of corners and the number of sides. Some of us can even explain the difference between a square and a rectangle!0 Comments
In our last science lesson, we made our own colourful, fragrant and fantastic bath bombs! We used a range of ingredients and we had to do some careful measuring and mixing, before scooping the mixtures into the moulds.
After the bath bombs had set, we dropped them into a nice bath! Take a look at what happened next!
Year 4, can you explain how our readers could make their own bath bombs in the comments below?0 Comments
We have had a great start to International Week in Nursery and Reception, with the children enjoying learning about Poland and Polish culture. We have been making Polish cucumber dip, and can’t wait to try it later! We have also been exploring symmetry in Polish folk art called Wycinanki, making our own designs by cutting and sticking indoors, or using natural materials outside. Then we had some very special visitors! Zuzanna, Maia and Victoria came to to tell us all about going to school in Poland, read some Polish poetry and tell us about national traditional dress. Thank you so much girls! Dziękuję!0 Comments
We have been learning so much through imaginative play this week, using small world outdoors and in construction, talking about the size of the things we use and build. We also had a great time pretending to be dogs, and used lots of positional language taking part in dog agility games!0 Comments
We are delighted to see our friends back in school today and have been having fun in the sun playing with numbers and enjoying books, as well as writing letters and numbers in spooky slime indoors! What other spooky goings-on will there be this week?0 Comments
Year 3 have been investigating how opaque objects create shadows by not letting light pass through them. We explored how shadows change when the object’s distance from the light source changes, so we needed great teamwork and precise science and maths skills for our measuring and recording! Great work, Year 3!0 Comments
Here are a few photographs of the amazing maths work we have been doing this half term. We’ve estimated how many giant steps it takes to get from one side of the playground to the other, worked out how many tens and ones are in two digit numbers, ordered numbers to a hundred, practiced our number bonds, counted in 2s, 5s, 3s and 10s from different numbers and much more. Year 2 have worked so hard since starting in September and they have learnt so many new skills already. We can’t wait for next term!0 Comments
Year one had lots of fun using their maths and sciece skills to make delicous rice crispie cakes.0 Comments
We are loving the book Supertato! The only problem is, the evil pea keeps causing trouble at school. He has thrown potatoes all over the floor and we have had to gather and count them, and he has trapped veggies in the shredded paper! We have been designing and making lots of traps to try to catch him!
We are so lucky to have not only wonderful school grounds, but a fantastic new kitchen in the EYFS. Today we started the day by harvesting our very own potatoes which have been grown at school. We washed them ourselves, then followed a recipe to boil and mash them, adding other ingredients (weighing and measuring carefully) and mixing well. Our bread smelt fantastic as it baked, and we enjoyed sharing it for our snack the next day. We are farmers and chefs, and a family that cooks and eats together!
