Spring 2 – Week 5 – SCIENCE WEEK!

Class 4 have had a fantastic week. Whilst rehearsing for the play, we have also enjoyed carrying out different activities for science week. We started off the week with a visit from an astronomer and a planetarium in our hall! We designed and made our own paper planes for an experiment on aerodynamics. Next, it was off to the moon for some exploration. In teams, we designed lunar rovers that would be able to get an astronaut safely around the moon. Imagining ourselves as an astronaut, we wrote diary entries of our day exploring the moon and look for rock for examination. On Friday, we had a very special visitor who came in to teach us about our hearts. Thank you Mrs Barlow for coming to visit us! We finished off the week by turning our lunar rover designs in to a model.

We are now all experts in teeth brushing, flossing and why we need to take care of our teeth! A big thank you to Sharlene for making it such a fantastic afternoon full of exciting learning!

Stars of the week: Amiah and Beatrix

Welcome to Amiah who has joined class 4 this week and well done Beatrix for being a lovely friendĀ  helping Amiah settle in.

Class 4 enjoyed their visit to the Whitechapel gallery this week. They had a fantastic time looking at modern artworks and talking about their meanings. They loved the opportunity to interact and use their imagination to explore the exhibitions on show. Back at school, we discussed ‘what is art?’ and whether art can just be an idea. Well done class 4 for being so enthusiastic!
