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!

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.

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.

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.

As a 'Final Ta Dah' to our LCC on the Stone Age the children made stewed fruit as they would have eaten at that time. They used lots of lovely berries, nuts and honey and then wrote instructions on how to make it. Most of them thoroughly enjoyed it; others were not so sure as seen in the pictures below!

Rights-Respecting Ambassadors Visit to Grange Valley Primary School 6.2.18

Date: 7th Feb 2018 @ 11:18am

Four members of our Rights-Respecting Steering Group led an assembly for the whole school at Grange Valley Primary School, Haydock this morning (6.2.18) to tell the children there all about the UNCRC. As well as introducing the children to some of the articles, they talked about who UNICEF are, what the RIghts-Respecting Schools Award is and what we have done at Lyme to promote everyone's knowledge and understanding of children's rights. After the assembly, they met with the Deputy Headteacher to talk about their work in more detail. She was very impressed and invited the children back next term to talk to the Y4 and Y5 children about starting on their rights-respecting journey.

Well done Emily, Reece, Brodie and Morgan! Not only were you fabulous ambassadors for children's rights but also for Lyme.

Rights_Respecting Steering Group lessons - Article 30 - 29.1.17

Date: 1st Feb 2018 @ 4:32pm

During the week beginning 29th January, some members of our Steering Group have taught lessons to Y1-6 about article 30 - every child has the right to learn and use the language, customs and religion of their family.

Nursery and Reception enjoyed an excellent session from two of our Year 6 students, who introduced them to Alice and Alex, our Rights-Respecting mascots. Alex the teddy bear will be making visits home with our Foundation Stage children to take photos linked to some of their rights - nutritious food, clean water, play, education and a clean environment.

The photographs show our teachers in the making!!

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!

The children have been preparing, chopping, slicing, dicing and mixing with the help of 'The Junior Chef Academy' this afternoon. They made szechuan noodles as part of the 'A taste of China' lesson. The children were instructed step by step through the recipe by our Chef and given the opportunity to show off their cooking skills!

They had a great time and didnt stop smiling and laughing throughout the lesson. We definitely have a few future Jamie Olivers on our hands in Y5!
