An Explosive Start to Science Week 2019!

Wow! What an amazing start to the week! Our Science Ambassadors and Year 6, supported by Mr Baraclough, led assembly this morning and demonstrated some incredible science experiments. The whole school were captivated whilst the year sixes created volcanic eruptions, explosions and showed diffusion in action. Thank you for such an inspiring start to the week.

Year 2, Which was your favourite experiment? 

Poetry Performance

This morning, we were looking at a range of poems and discussing the differences between poems and stories. The children particularly liked the Brian Moses poem: Aliens Stole My Underpants. They decided that they wanted to share it with you! We discussed how to (and how not to) read a poem and other ways to make it interesting for you at home. The children split into teams and had 20 minutes to work together to learn their section off by heart, add actions and expression. We hope you like the result!

 

 

Chinese New Year – Gung Hay Fat Choy

Key Stage 1 and Reception joined forces today to entertain the rest of the school during whole school assembly. They have worked very hard over the past few weeks to learn all about the Chinese New Year and the children wanted to share their learning with key stage 2. The assembly started with the reception children parading to Chinese music as a large Chinese dragon. Year 2 then shared facts about Chinese New Year and Key Stage One acted out the story of The Great Race, the story of the origins of the Chinese Zodiac. This was followed by a presentation of work from all the classes, where the children showed a selection of art work and Chinese writings. To conclude, the children all sang a song to wish everyone good luck and prosperity. Children, you were amazing! What a wonderfully entertaining and informative start to the day.
