Key Stage 2 have been having lots of fun in science this week. They have been building Christmas trees with straws, causing chemical reactions with left over cabbage water, making paper holly sprigs that magically open themselves and investigating solids and liquids to make delicious chocolate crispy cakes!
Earlier in the week, Year 5 and Year 6 had a visit from the Eagles.
Over the last two weeks, the first groups of our Year 5 children made their First Holy Communion at St Anthony’s Parish.
Year 5 and 6 were lucky enough to receive a visit from a Police Community Support Officer last week. She spoke to us all about keeping safe in the community, managing road safety and what to do if we’re worried that a crime might be being committed. This was especially useful as many of us are now travelling to and from school with friends or on our own. We really enjoyed talking about safety and can’t wait for the next visit!
Today, Year 5 created timelines of equal intervals (100 years each) to show more than 3000 years of history! We plotted the period of Ancient Greece and then added the period of our own lives. We were so shocked to see how little time we have been alive compared with the huge amount of time that has gone before us. We went on to add other significant periods that we have studied in school, such as Roman Britain and Ancient Egypt.
Year 5 have been working hard and building up a regular sweat in PE lessons this half-term. We have been working on improving our stamina, speed and strength in a Fitness block of learning. It’s been tough work at times but we have encouraged each other and shown determination to complete each exercise.
