MEDITERRANEAN FOOD TASTING

Date: 27th Apr 2018 @ 4:03pm

The Year 3 children enjoyed trying a variety of Mediterranean foods last week from Brioche from France and Chorizo from Spain to Ricotta cheese from Italy. They loved tasting and describing all the different foods, though they weren't so sure about the olives!

Why were the Ancient Egyptians Awesome?

Date: 27th Apr 2018 @ 3:56pm

To start our topic on the Ancient Egyptians we made bread and Papyrus paper. The Ancient Egyptians had bread with almost every meal. Year 4 mixed and kneaded the ingredients and then shaped their bread into their own unique shape. We had a mixture of plaits and rolls.

In the afternoon, we made Papyrus paper which we will be using to write like an Egyptian. It was a messy day but lots of fun. 

Out and About Lyme and Wood Pits Country Park.

On Thursday 26th April, we went for a walk around the local park with Scott the Ranger. We learned lots about the local farms, the coal mines and what once was there. Take a look at some of our pictures! Recounts to follow!

Measuring Up!

Date: 27th Apr 2018 @ 7:48am

This week in Maths we have been looking at measuring in CM and M.

We started this lesson by estimating how big each part of our body was before actually measuring them to find out if we were correct.

Daniela was an amazing estimator as she some of her estimates matched the measures! Well done!

States of Matter

Well done to all the children who completed this half term's home learning project. We had a number of board games as well as facts about states of matter and a very detailed poster of the water cycle.

To end our topic on States of Matter, the children made their very own water cycle. The children enjoyed watching how the water cycle works.

Here are some photos.

Healthy Eating Wrapped up!

Date: 29th Mar 2018 @ 8:22am

To finish off our healthy eating topic we designed and created some healthy wraps. We made sure that we had a bit of each food group to make sure it was a balanced meal. 

Take a look at some of our master pieces.

Over the half term the children were given the challenge of completing their home school projects. They could either:

3) create a food diary/ poster about healthy eating. 

Take a look at all of our hard work!

Y6 keep Y2 in suspense!

A select number of boys from year 5 and year 4 participated in a football tournament today. The standard of play was fantastic. The boys did really well finishing 3rd in our group.

Stay and Play in Foundation Stage.

Date: 20th Mar 2018 @ 8:48pm

We had lots of fun when our parents and carers came to Stay and Play.  The concept is to allow you to experience teaching approaches in the Early Years, observe your child in their classroom and take part in their learning with them.

Invasion of the Evil Peas

Date: 16th Mar 2018 @ 12:54pm

This week we had some Evil Peas come in and make a big mess in Foundation Stage! When the children came in they were shocked to find such a mess! (which they blamed on Mr Widdowson at first!) After checking the footage from the cameras we discovered that the mess was caused by some Evil Peas. All the children worked together to make traps to catch them and signs to warn them to stay away. The following night we caught some peas and luckily none have been back since!

What's that rumble in the jungle?

Where are the rainforest?

We had a great time using salt dough to create a

continent map showing topography, rainforests, major rivers and counties.

We are looking forward to painting our creations once

they are dry.

 

What is the State of Matter?

Date: 11th Mar 2018 @ 7:21pm

To introduce our new Science topic 'States of Matter', we melted chocolate and made cornflake cakes. We tested how quick dark, milk and white chocolate melt and then observed the chocolate turning back into a solid. 

We also watched a balloon inflate with only yeast, sugar and water. 

We had lots of fun and enjoyed the cornflake cakes afterwards.

Pok-a-Tok

Date: 5th Mar 2018 @ 5:23pm

To end our topic on the Mayans, we held a Pok-a-Tok tournament. Pok-a-Tok is

an ancient Mayan team game. Pok-a-Tok is like a cross between volleyball

and basketball—except much, much more difficult to play. The object of

the game was for the two opposing side to try and hit the ball into a

hoop placed at both ends of the playing field.

We read the story 'The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore' which the children loved!

Well done to everyone who came dressed up. There were some fantastic characters in class today.

How does sound travel?

Date: 27th Feb 2018 @ 7:03pm

In our Science lessons, we have been learning about sound. We have been looking at how we hear sound and how sound travels. To identify how the pitch of a sound changes, we made pan pipes with straws and tried to change the pitch by adjusting the size of the straw. To help us understand how sound travels we made string telephones. We found out that if the string was tight we could hear better. Here are some pictures.
