Science

This half term the children are learning all about forces and magnets. The children have enjoyed investigating using force meters the required force needed to pull an object. They will go on to look at friction and magnets before the holidays.

Our Assembly

On Tuesday this week Year 3 performed their play ‘The Trial of Goldilocks’. The children had worked incredibly hard, alongside Mrs Goulden, to make sure it was perfect and i’m sure you’ll agree it was fantastic. 

CSI Workshop

On Thursday the children thoroughly enjoyed a CSI themed workshop ran by the Pulse CSI team. The day started off with looking for fingerprints using lead fillings and a wand. The children then looked at their own fingerprints and examined them with magnifying glasses to find their specific type of print.  They then made a lovely keyring with their fingerprint on. The children went on to examine fibres and hair samples along with hidden messages. In the afternoon, the children got to examine a crime scene and use all their skills from the morning to decide who the suspect was. It was a fantastic science based day and the children loved it!

Science – Light

In science this half term we have been looking at light sources and what happens when light travels. The children have been investigating what happens when light hits different objects. The children have really enjoyed drawing diagrams and then investigating their ideas.

Who Dunn it?

We have been very busy this half term exploring our topic ‘Who Dunn It?’ The children have been reading and exploring the text ‘Detective Dog’. This has been extended further by looking at the justice system and our courts of law. The children have really enjoyed looking at who is in a court room and what happens there. This has led us further to look at the system of democracy. During the rest of this term the children will continue to explore these ideas and put them into a play which you will enjoy at our class assembly.

Year 3

Transition Day

Year 1 spent the day as head of KS1 in preparation for September! Using their imagination they turned a stick into an arrow a cardboard box into a rocket and a pencil into wand!

They practiced Year 2s famous rainbow writing before decorating their hands and taking a leap into the future.


The Sound of Music Returns!

Years 2 and 3 took part in their second music workshop today. This time the focus was on rhythm and beats as the children experimented with some rather unusual musical instruments.

The sound of music!

Years 2 and 3 took part last week in a music workshop. They learnt how to exercise their vocal chords and rehearsed for a part in a music marathon!

A big thank you to Mrs Pearce for organising the event for us.

Miss Perkin’s surprise tin!

What a start to our last half term! Following our ride in Mr Bamber’s time machine to the ragged school we recieved a a delivery from Miss Perkins the school’s headmistress. We were a little scared as Miss Perkins used a cane and was very strict. But luckily it was all ok as she had sent us games to enjoy from the past.
