Today we had lots of fun kicking starting Science Week in school. This years theme is growth. We began by having a mass planting session with the whole school …. We are excited to watch our flowers grow.
Miss Grimes worked with class 1 where they had the most amazing time planting different seeds in each one of the fingers of their rubber gloves, some contained cotton wool and others contained soil – all were attached to the window once complete and we are going to watch them grow! 🪴
Miss Milburn loved working with Class 2. We combined science with art and created our own waterlilies. We folded the petals and predicted what would happen when they were put onto water. Some children predicted that the flowers would open up and everyone observed closely to see if they were right!
Mr Graham visited Class 3 and we looked at healthy eating. The children categorised a large variety of food into their food groups, looked at the food they had just eaten for dinner and asked the question…is it possible to eat healthy ‘sweet’ food?
The children worked incredibly hard and helped to make Sugar Seed balls using natural ingredients.
Well done to all our children who demonstrated their rights respecting gold ethos in abundance 👍
Mrs Morton had the pleasure of working with Class 4 and certainly had their minds blown when they discovered that a Coral Polyp was in fact and animal (with tentacles to paralyse it’s prey before eating it) and not a plant or a rock type!
We looked in detail at the world beneath our Ocean when studying one of the largest and most diverse ecosystems in the world – the Coral Reef 🐠
The most memorable part of our afternoon was creating our own individual Coral Polyps – that were completely edible 🤩
Mrs Aspinall visited Class 5 and they learned about DNA … everyone found out very interesting facts … we couldn’t believe that 50% of our DNA is the same as a banana! We had 3 main suspects, Mrs Lee, Mrs Hill and Mrs Gallacher we interviewed all 3, who had very good alibis. Only Stacey guessed the culprit …. Mrs Hindmarch!
