Thanks again to Phillip and Amy Rose from Sci-Tech for all the AMAZING science! We all look forward to seeing you again.
Today we started our Science Days… what a fantastic start! Our friends Phillip and Amy Rose from Sci-Tech brought extra special Science to our school.
The day started with a lecture named States of Matter.
During the children’s session today the children were introduced to:
- The 3 states of matter
- That air is a mixture of gases
- A simple introduction to molecular structures
- A practical appreciation of Gas Pressure
- A demonstration of some of the properties of Carbon Dioxide
- An understanding of water vapour and humidity
Lots more photographs can be found on our Instagram account. You can find a link for the account on the top right of this weblog.
Please look at our Instagram to see a selection of the artwork the children have produced during their Vincent van Gogh topic.
The plans for the new school are on target and going well. We are all set to open in 2017.
During our last meeting we were looking at the finishes of the rooms, the floors, walls and doors. Very exciting times…
In our literacy lessons (in Year 6) we have been reading Stay Where You Are And Then Leave by John Boyne.
The story is set at the beginning of World War 1 and is about a boy called Alfie and his family and friends.
If family and friends have stories or artefacts from WW2 that you are willing to share please let Mrs Chalkiopoulou or myself know.
Year 6 Questions
What do you think about Alfie’s father? Do you think he is a hero?
We had a brilliant start to the new school year. All the teachers are very proud of the way in which all the children have settled quickly into their new classes.
We have started our school year with a whole primary school art theme on Vincent Van Gogh. The children have been learning all about the Dutch artist and creating some masterpieces of their own.
