Science Week starts with a boffin!

2015’s Science Week started with a tremendous assembly from Science Boffin William. He showed the children how to make elephant toothpaste! He demonstrated the effects of surface tension and air molecules. However Tilly-Sue from Year 3 said “his best experiment was with the toilet paper because it was really funny, but he was crazy!”

Year 3 investigate Sainsbury’s.

As part of the new Y3 topic ‘Scrumdiddlyumtious’ the children went to the local Sainsbury’s to investigate different food products. They needed to learn about price, fair-trade, country of origin and the best way to layout a shop.

2AH Lava Experiment for Science Week

Miss Howley’s Year 3s are doing a topic on volcanoes so they used their science week experiment to create lava! The basic mixture was three quarters water (with some drops of red food colouring) to one quarter vegetable oil. On to the top of each transparent cup was sprinkled one teaspoon of either sand, sugar, salt or floor.  The children carefully observed the mixture and saw that salt provided the best results. Then the class used their knowledge to make a lava lamp.

Lower Key Stage 2 Christingle Service

On Tuesday 17th December Lower Key Stage 2 held their annual Christingle Service as St Chads Church. The children told the real story of Christmas, presented an acrostic poem, explained the meaning of the Christingle and sang hymns. The whole event was enjoyed with family and friends, including members from St Chads congregation. The children and staff would like to thank Mrs Dean and St Chads Church for allowing us to hold this Christmas celebration.
