The Larch class reporters have been busy at work finalising their alien spaceship newspaper reports. Thankfully no further sightings of the large, mechanical spaceship have been reported above Tanners Wood!
Teachers enjoy learning new things too! Today staff were learning more about robotics and coding using microbits.
This morning on her way to work Miss Bennett was horrified to see an alien spaceship zoom over Tanners Wood. Year three went to investigate and were amazed when they discovered a strange, green egg in the KS1 playground. Where did the egg come from? What is the strange noise that keeps coming from the sky? Where is the UFO now? Year 3 will continue to report on the incident and hopefully more information will be revealed soon…
This afternoon year 3 travelled to St Catherine’s school to take part in a fun run. The children all showed great determination and sportsmanship. Congratulations to Lola who came 3rd in the girls race and to Freddie and Zac who came 1st and 2nd in the boys race, both across all three schools. Well done everyone!
Today Larch class had the exciting opportunity to take part in a robotics workshop. We learnt how to programme a micro-bit and all about input and output. Our behaviour was outstanding and we were all determined to complete lots of the challenges set for us.
In science this week we have carried out an investigation on the permeability and density of different rocks. We discussed our aim, made predictions and assessed the risks before carrying out the experiment. Once we completed our results table and analysed our results, we noted our conclusions.
Y1,2 3 and 4 pupils had the opportunity to take part in a gymnastics competition. We had been practising at lunchtime and entertaining the pupils in the packed lunch hall. They were extremely excited. It was our first time attending this event and we didn’t know what to expect. We took part in the vault and floor routines. We tried really hard and Y1/2 came 5th and Y3/4 came 8th. Well done children!
In DT this half term we have been designing, making and evaluating money containers. We have put our sewing skills to the test and are really pleased with the final products!
As part of our home learning we have created some fantastic Ancient Egypt models using a range of different materials. Have a look at some of our creative ideas!
