This week Isabella from 7S has been working hard learning how to bake chocolate chip cookies at home. Here she is with her handiwork- She’s looking very pleased with herself and it’s easy to see why! Keep the photographs of what you have been up to coming!

7s -Clay work

As part of our art topic on ceramic pinch pots we used air dry clay to practise rolling, cutting, pinching and moulding techniques… We made shapes that we then turned into mobiles. Here we are showing our work…

7s – Fair trade fortnight

As part of fair trade fortnight 7s learnt about how fair trade helps people in other countries get paid fairly for the work that they do. We watched the fair trade film ‘The Chocolate story’ and then we tried some different fair trade chocolates, bananas and cups of tea. We described the tastes, smells and textures we observed.

World Book Day-7s

As part of World Book Day, 7s took part in lots of different reading activities across the school day.

We listened to Miss Ash reading one of her favourite books from home.

We read to our friends…

We listened to an online story read by our favourite TV stars…

And we finished the day with some Harry Potter themed yoga…

Lots of fun was had by all!

7s-Making ice cream

As part of our work on states of matter in Science, today 7s attempted to make ice cream without a freezer. We looked at using salt to lower the temperature of ice. Here we are following the instructions. While we weren’t all successful, some of us managed to turn the milkshake into ice cream and it was delicious!

7s- Battle of Hastings

Today we went outside and recreated the battle of Hastings. Each army had spent time preparing their weapons and armour. After a hard battle King William became victorious after King Harold II of England was shot in the eye by a flying arrow.

7s- Plant and animal cells

For the past few weeks 7S have been looking at cells during Science lessons. This week we made our own version of a plant and animal cell using sweets. We used jelly for the cytoplasm and the pupils chose from a variety of sweets to replicate the make up of each cell.

Great fun was had by all, especially as we got to eat them at the end!
