Thank you to everyone who baked/bought cakes for our coffee morning and for everyone who came – we raised over £200 for Macmillan! Please see our pictures below.
This week, in science, we investigated the effects of refraction. Refraction is the bending of light as it passes from one transparent substance into another. We investigated what happened to an arrow and other pictures when we looked at it through a glass of water .
This week in Science we have been learning about the eat well plate and the different food groups. The children worked in groups and made their own eat well plate. They did a fantastic job of sorting the foods into the correct food groups. Please see our pictures below.
Last week we began our new topic in Science on habitats. We explored the school grounds to see how many habitats we could discover. We found lots of insects and they all had different habitats. Here are some examples of what we found.
We had an excellent day at out taster day at The Westleigh School. We had 4 different lessons, we got to ask lots of questions and it was a good insight to what the school is like. Please see our pictures below.
We have made such a good start to the school year! We have already learned lots and we are doing great with our extra responsibilities and being good role models for the other children.
In science, we learned about how we see things. We then modeled this to the class to show our understanding. Please see our pictures below.
Year 3 have been learning about the different jobs inside a hospital. We invited a Sister to come down and talk to the class about her experiences and what she liked to do. We were amazed at the things she did and at how many people she helped in a day.
It was also the 70th birthday of the NHS. We designed our own special birthday cards to take to the hospital.
We then turned our classroom into a hospital and we really enjoyed our bandaging station. At the end we could name 22 different jobs that you would find in a hospital.
Last week was World of Work week in school. Each class looked at a different job and on Friday we changed our classrooms into the places of work.
Reception – Architects
Year 1 – Post Office
Year 2 – Cafe
Year 3 – Hospitals
Year 4 – Dentists
Year 5 – Emergency Services
Year 6 – Lawyers
Year 5 have turned their classroom into the Emergency Services this week. They have learned all about police officers, paramedics, firefighters and coast guards. We were very lucky to have visits off the police and paramedics but unfortunately the fire service couldn’t make an appearance as they are very busy at the moment! We have learned lots of important things about how to react in emergencies, including how to put an unconcious person in the recovery position. Take a look!
Today year 5 were shocked to find a crime scene on the playground. We worked hard to find all of the evidence to work out which suspect attacked Miss Cliff in order to take charge of the KS2 Performance! We even had a visit from the police to support us in our investigation. Our year 5 CSI team have worked very hard to narrow it down to one prime suspect. We analysed finger prints, measured footprints, interviewed suspects and searched the area of the crime scene for crucial evidence. Who do you think it is?
