Year 2 were excellent scientists today, carrying out their own experiment to find out which materials are better at absorbing sound than others. They made predictions and quickly understood and demonstrated the importance of a fair test. They began conducting tests using the alarm on their ipads and seeing which materials would reduce the sound […]Read More Experimenting with sound – Y2 science
We are linking our Art and Geography work in order to develop some pieces based on coral bleaching. We used our knowledge of tints and a new medium – poster paint – to demonstrate how coral might look as it goes from healthy to stressed to bleached. We then drew a template of a piece […]Read More Coral bleaching Art project in LKS2
Last week we made bulbs light, motors turn and buzzers buzz, but WHY and HOW are these things happening? This week we took our investigation further and learned about the FLOW of electricity around a CIRCUIT and the presence of ELECTRONS in our circuits. We even made a human representation of a circuit to demonstrate […]Read More How does a circuit work? LKS2 investigate
This week we learnt about coral bleaching. What is it? Why is it happening? What can we do to help? We created posters to help educate people on the above questions that we now have the answer to.Read More What is happening to our oceans? LKS2
Year 3 and 4 have been thinking about why Christians go to church. With lots of discussion we were able to think of every reason a Christian may go to church, we also discussed if they had to go to church to do all of the things we thought of.Read More RE in LKS2
In Year One this week, we went out into the playground to look for early signs of Autumn. We collected some fallen leaves and looked at the different colours we could see. Inspired by the trees in our playground, we recreated them using powder paint and leaf printing. Year One mixed their own paints using […]Read More Year 1 Art – Leaf Printing
We did it! We made the rainbow! We also made brown and black! I managed to capture the moment the first child made black (we may be biased but we think it’s a FAB picture!) and I think you’ll see we were very impressed and proud of ourselves! We now have a wall for all […]Read More More colour mixing in Reception!
Our Preschool is a place where we can learn more about ourselves through music, role play and collaboration. We make time for each other and respect the different ways that our friends learn and express themselves. This girl has inspired us to get drumming!Read More Being Imaginative and Expressive in Preschool
In geography this week Year 2 used maps to explore our school grounds and find where some famous explorers were hiding. They then marked up their maps to show the location of each explorer and the route they took too find them. We then learnt the names of the seven continents, by means of a […]Read More Y2: Explorers
By examining a ‘pluck’ as a class, we identified where the heart sits in relation to the lungs and how the organs are connected via the pulmonary artery and vein. After this, the children were given a lamb’s heart per pair to dissect. We discussed the difference between the arteries and veins, identified the superior […]Read More UKS2 Science – Heart dissection!
