Larch class took part in a light and dark science workshop today. We shared our prior learning on light and dark and were taught even more engaging scientific information! Children were able to make a kaleidoscope to show how light reflects off mirrors, go into a pitch black tent to see what happens to our eyes, as well as make finger puppets to show how objects block light and make shadows. Ask your child to explain how the sun, moon and Earth work together to form day and night!
During today’s English lesson, the children researched reasons behind the decision to execute her cousin, Mary Queen of Scots. The children will use their research to write a diary entry as Elizabeth 1.
Children have been busy preparing their pitch for tomorrow’s meeting with the FOTW.
On Wednesday, Oak class we’re lucky enough to have the chance to experience virtual reality headsets. As a class we travelled to Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, the Great Wall of China and Paris. It was very exciting, particularly finding ourselves in the middle of a gladiator fight!
In PSHE we discussed the idea of a McDonalds being built on the field outside our school. We talked about the good and bad points of having a fast food restaurant on our doorstep. I asked the children to justify their reasons too.
Well done to Daisy for being chosen for ‘Parent and Players’ trophy and to Chase for being awarded top goal scorer!
Today’s Virtual Reality Workshop was fantastic! The children all said how much they loved the experience and would like to repeat it. This was very obvious by the continual exclamations of ‘Wow’ heard throughout, and as you can also see being said in some of these photos!
Rowen class really enjoyed learning about WW1 through their virtual reality headsets
