World cup celebrations

The Sixth form have been learning about the football world cup. This afternoon we had a penalty shoot out, danced to football anthems and watched the opening ceremony.

9R Planting Marigolds

We have been learning about Mexico this half term. Marigolds have symbolic meanings in Mexico; they are used to decorate Offrendas (shrines) to celebrate Mexican day of the dead. 9R have got the planting bug, we put compost into our pots then  planted the marigolds. We felt the compost and smelled  the leaves and flower buds. Now we will wait for the flowers to open!

9R Making Jam Tarts

This afternoon we made jam tarts, we poured a pastry mixture into a bowl, added water then gave it a mix, took it in turns to knead the dough and roll it out. We then tasted and smelled the jam – ooh lime and strawberry! We spooned the jam into our pastry cases, then baked them in the oven.  Our jam tarts looked really yummy when cooked. We made some letters using the left over pastry and asked pupils to find their initial sound.

7E Science: Night and day

This half of the term we will be exploring space. Today we looked at how night and days occurs.

We inflated a balloon and stuck a cut out image of Australia on it, we used a globe to make sure we put it in the right place!




We then used string to carefully hang the balloon, which acted as Earth, from the ceiling.


We used a torch to act as the sun and rotated the ‘Earth’ so the sun would show midnight, midday, sunset and sunrise in Australia.


  
Next lesson we are going to look at phases of the moon.

10C Stop Motion

In art, we have explored using stop motion. We have made short animations where our names, spellings and drawings are realised.

Until next time.
