7H Galaxies

In science, we have looked at our solar system and galaxies. We have been describing the different astral bodies and modelling the different phenomena that occur. Yesterday, we made a model of a nebula in a bottle. First we put some cotton balls in a bottle…

We then added paint and glitter….

We greatly enjoyed mixing and pouring to make our galaxies.

We then made galaxy oobleck. We mixed our ingredients together…

And then added water…

We then explored our galaxies…

We had great fun exploring the oobleck galaxy but some of us had to tidy up…

Until next time.

11W Chocolate trains!

11W have made mini chocolate roll trains as part of our work on journeys.  We listened to a story about a boy who loved trains so we decided to make our own as our Friday treat!  We can share them at home.

 

 

10C Sew Amazing

In creative studies, we have started a topic on textiles. First, we learned how to thread beads…

We then used a needle and thread to practise our sewing…

Until next time.

7H To the Moon

In science, we have been looking at the moon. First, we made some moon sand and explored its properties…

We made shiny moons from tinfoil…

We then made splat moons. First, we made 3D sensory paint…

And we splatted the paint…

Until next time.

8L Journey

8L went for a journey around the school grounds.

We followed a map to find the clues and we took our telescopes.

We followed the snake.

We went through the gate…

We counted to 10 with the timer…

We blew the horn for the bus …

 

We walked under the rose arch…

and over the bridge (where we found some chocolate coins!!)

We might go on a journey again!!!!

 

Friday Enrichment: Myths and Legends

This week in myths and legends we have been learning folklore around the fairy folk. We created some fairy doors to welcome them into our homes…or to make sure the naughty ones leave!

We picked our own colours and some of us painted our doors, some used felt tips.

Enjoy your weekend.

Macmillan Coffee Morning – 7H

7H absolutely loved making shortbreads yesterday, smiles all round for our Macmillan Coffee Morning!

11W MacMillan Coffee morning

11W have worked hard to bake cakes to raise money in aid of MacMillan Cancer research.  We decorated them with green icing. We also made some green and purple bunting that we used to decorate our classroom.  We enjoyed eating our cakes at our coffee morning.

Year 9 Friday afternoon outdoor activities group have been busy foraging around the school. As you can see they were very successful and found apples, blackberries and some rhubarb ( sixth form might have helped us with that one) . Next challenge, create some delicious recipes with our produce .
