'Twas the Night Before Christmas 2021
The children gave a great performance.
We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and will see everyone again in 2022!
Our Christmas Party 2021
We had great fun playing games and eating treats from the PTA. Merry Christmas everyone!
Mrs Reddern and Miss Rodgers put on a wonderful treat for the last day of term.
What a way to end our topic about Chocolate! A huge well done to everyone for their fantastic costumes. We have had great day that started off with singing and dancing, moved onto scientific investigations (and eating) of melted chocolate and marshmallows to listening to/writing chocolate poems whilst drinking hot chocolate before completing the Great Chocolate Quiz and ending with the delicious chocolate fountain. The children have been amazing this term and have deserved a day of fun (with some incidental learning along the way!!)
The Water Cycle
A great activity to try at home to see the water cycle in action:
Time Tables Songs
There are some great ones on line to help learn times tables. Here are a few links:
Another great session today! There were some strong passes and skillful tackles- Eva managed to beat Mrs Upsall four times!!
Everyone has a name, logo and design for their chocolate bar! It's getting really exciting now- we cannot wait to start making them.
Science- the changing states of water
Today's investigation led to us making observations every 10 minutes of ice cubes. We were trying to find out if the size, shape and temperature made a difference to how quickly the ice melted. The surprising result we had was that the ice outside melted quicker than the ice inside even though it was warmer inside. We discussed how it may have been because of the wind but it is definitely an investigation we need to try again to make sure it is accurate.
James Webb Space Telescope
What a BRILLIANT first day back. The whole of the KS2 community spent the day working between the 3 classrooms to find out more about the new space telescope and other aspects of space. There were some very intelligent questions asked during the Science/History session with Mrs Upsall by all of the year groups. A range of poems were written and shared with Miss Rawlings throughout the day and performed to the other classes at the end of the day. Mrs James took time to explain the sounds of the planets made in space by their movement and vibrations as well as listening to some of the music by Holst called The Planets.
Keep watching the news for further updates about the telescope which will be blasting off into space on 18th December before travelling a million miles away from Earth ready to send images back to Earth to help scientists discover more about the beginning of our Universe!
Our value for this term is community. We will be thinking a lot throughout the term about how we are part of so many different communities such as our family, our class, our school and even the global community. We will be thinking about how we can help to care for each of the communities that we are a part of.
Learning for life in a community that cares.
