We received a suitcase from Barnaby Bear! He has been on holiday to Tocuaro and brought us some souvenirs to show us what Mexico is like. We compared Tocuaro to Ashton Under-Lyne!
Year 5 have been studying Life Cycles and how plants disperse their seeds. To demonstrate two of the ways this happens we used balloons. One video shows how some plants explode to spread their seeds and the other video shows how seeds spread by wind. The children were really engaged with the excitment of balloons.
Thanks, Mr Barker.
Last week and this week two boys from Year 5 were lucky enough to go on a music and well-being trip. They experimented with different sounds and wrote their own song. Alfie and Josh both loved the music and create their own music.
Thanks, Mr Barker.
To help with their historical enquiry skills and as part of their science topic on fossils, the children went to Manchester Museum for a fabulous trip to be Dinosaur Detectives. They had a brilliant guide in Hannah, who first of all revealed a dinosaur's foot from beneath a black cloth. The children had to work hard and think about...
As part of Year 3 's Science the children have to understand how soil is made. To help their understanding they made a mini compost bin with worms included! They had to treat the worms very carefully and had to take care when using the compost and the food that was put in the bin.
Over the next few weeks...
Year 3's Science topic is rocks and soils. One of the first activities was to decide if a rock occurred in nature - was natural - or if it had been created by humans. The children worked in Kagan groups to sort them. Some children used actual rocks whilst others used pictures of different rock types.
In preparation for our Science trip of 10th November 2017, the children practised handling objects carefully because they would be holding fossils that were millions of years old when they went to Manchester Museum. Here they are being really careful.
