Learning at Home and In School plus this week’s Headteacher Award Winners

This week, our Year 5 ‘key worker bubble’ has been learning about the properties of different materials. We took advantage of the sunshine and carried out an investigation outside to find out what happens to some materials when we add water.

We discovered that some materials dissolve in water, meaning that they are soluble and created a new solution. Some materials, like flour, did not dissolve, which makes them insoluble.

Headteacher’s Awards

Assembly In School

This week, we held our first ‘Zoom Assembly’ in school!

We joined all our ‘bubbles’ together (on screen) to share and celebrate work completed during the previous week. One piece of work was nominated from each bubble to receive a Headteacher’s Award sticker from Mr Pridden. Please scroll down to see our proud recipients.

Here are our Headteacher Award winners for this week –

Science Home Learning by Year 3

This week, we would like to celebrate some of the Year 3 Home Learning which has been submitted to teachers on our Google Classrooms.

Last week, Year 3 Children were set a Science task on their ‘classroom’. This was to design and make a  healthy wrap. They could make it into a balanced meal if they wanted to by adding a snack and drink and they were challenged to see if they could include foods from every food group. 

This week, their task has been to create shadows. They were asked to think about how translucent/transparent/opaque objects would create different shadows and also think about how to make shadows bigger and smaller by moving the object closer to/further away from the light source.
