The Reception children have been very busy over the last few weeks. We’ve been learning about keeping healthy. We made healthy fruit kebabs, did lots of exercise and made posters to promote 5 ways of staying healthy!

Year 1 19th – 23rd June 17

This week in Year 1 we have had a brilliant time taking part in Science Week!
We have carried out investigations, we have had great scientists in to work with us and we have even made our own scientist pictures.
We carried out a skittle experiments where the colour came of the skittles and made a pattern. We have also been working with partners mixing colours and making our own mystery colour! We even made slime. It was really funny on our hands because it was like play dough and then it turned all runny! Then we made lava lamps and watched all of the bubbles floating to the top. Our scientist artwork looks fantastic too.

We love Science in 1NS!

We can’t wait to see what we will be doing next week.

Year 5 19th – 23rd June 17

This week in english we have been publishing our brochures for Pandora can we persuade you to visit? Maths saw us problem solving, to date we have cracked codes, played the Chinese game Nim and sorted numbers based on their properties.

This week we welcomed parents to our class assembly where the children had the opportunity to share all their hard work. We were very proud of them and impressed with their performance.

It has also been science week at school, in year five we have created density towers, made glowing lava lamps, tested the powers of friction, created colours and made slime!

Year 6 19th – 23rd June 17

This week was Science Week at Newham Bridge and boy, have we enjoyed it! We spent our mornings planning and carrying out an experiment and spent afternoons doing some ‘wow’ experiments like ‘seeing the rainbow’ from a plate of skittles. We devised an experiment to test the most effective way of melting jelly for the Wobble family to use as instructions on their new brand of jelly – does it need warm or cold water and does stirring really help?

This week we have also begun a research project in RE. We are working in small groups to learn as much as we possibly can about one of the main religions (Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, Hinduism and Buddhism). We have used artefact boxes full of items which are important to members of that religion and we will share our new expert knowledge in the form of presentations next week.

Through our topic, we have also learned about the Mexican festival of Dia De Los Muertos, marked on October 31st each year to celebrate those who have died. We discovered how Mexicans celebrate this festival with masks, special foods and parades and we even designed our own Dia De Los Muertos masks with bright colours and patterns.

But it doesn’t end there! We have been fortunate enough to work with the British Red Cross again this week, taking part in two workshops exploring migration. We have discussed what migration means and the push and pull factors that lead people to migrate. We then talked about who refugees and asylum seekers are and whether or not we, as a country, should help. It was a great opportunity to discuss some trickier topics and broaden our minds, thank you BRC.

After another fantastic week in Year 6, it is now full steam ahead into Geography Week next week!
