Year 4 Science in the Sun

Year 4 Oak class took advantage of the glorious weather and investigated the process of digestion in the sunshine this week. We used sandwich bags, tights and plastic cups to mimic parts of the body and help us understand the process of digestion inside our bodies. It was fairly messy and involved producing waste from a plastic cup. As you can imagine, the children loved it!

KS2 Dodgeball Event

Well done to KS2 for a super dodgeball event, great enthusiasm and enjoyment was shown by all. Thank you very much to the sports council for refereeing so well and helping the younger team members. We left the field alone- Y5/6 played on KS2 playground, Y3/4 in the hall and outside on KS1 playground. A great morning had by all! The photos below illustrate this.

Junior Challenge at Cassiobury park

A group of children from Tanners Wood took part in a run around Cassiobury park to help raise money for the Peace Hospice. Amy and Luke ran as representatives of KS2 and William, Freddie and Max ran as representative s of KS1. 

We have since been informed that William, Freddie and Max came third overall in the race as a Tanners Wood team! 

Well-done and rthank you for raising money! 



Y5 cross country county run!

On Saturday 24th March at 10am, five Y5’s competed in the county final at Cassiobury park. It was rather damp and cold but we were very excited to take part. There were children who were part of competitive running clubs there so tension was high! They ran with great confidence and did themselves proud. Well done Zoe, Toby, Ben C, Kyle and Jacob. 

Jacob came second in the boys race and Ben C, Toby and Kyle came in the twenties out of fifty boys. Well done all! We are very proud!

A super well done to Zoe, our only girl representative, who came in the twenties out of fifty girls. Well done! 





Eggs away. . .

Oak class are investigating the effects of different liquids on egg shells. We are mid way through our experiment and have discovered that so far vinegar and energy drinks have had the most dramatic effect.

Watch out for our final results next week!
