A fabulous first night was had by all!
Here’s our Science Council Summer update.
We are continuing to grow and nurture sunflower plants as well and help look after pet tomato plants for each class. We continue to meet each week and this term we are also attempting to complete a #30dayswild challenge throughout June. Look out for photos of what we are getting up to and if you would like to join in and try this at home with your family, here is a tick list for you to check off.
Let Ms Drake know if you complete any of the challenges and feel free to find her at lunchtime to show her or tell her about what you have been up to linked to science and this challenge.
We enjoyed dressing up in red, white and blue. We learned about lots of events during the reign of Queen Elizabeth and then enjoyed recreating portraits of the Queen from a variety of times during her time as Queen. To end the day we enjoyed having a tea party.
On Tuesday 16th May, a group of Year 4 children visited the Urban Factory in Hebburn. We took part in some great gymnastics activities such as tumbling, rolling, climbing, jumping and running. We even enjoyed trying parkour for the first time. We all had a fantastic afternoon!
Within our Science lessons, Year 4 are currently studying ‘habitats’. We invited Katie, from Science Buddies, to come into our school and complete an experiment with us. We predicted the preference of a woodlouse’s habitat and then experimented to find out if they liked, dry, wet, light or dark environments. We had lots of fun and also met Einstein the Giant African snail and learned about his habitat.
Year 5 are really enjoying their Samba Drumming lessons with Mr. Bird. We are learning to play some of the call and response drumming patterns synonymous with the Brazilian music, using the different samba drums.
Our Science Council are showing off their green fingers.
Year 3 had a great day at Segedunum Roman Fort. We trained to be Roman soldiers complete with shields and spears. We marched in formation and got ready for battle.
We visited the site of the original Hadrian’s wall and completed a mock invasion from the wall using soft balls. This was very exciting.
We had a tour of the remains of the fort and learned all about the buildings and people.
