Y5/6 – Ready Steady Cook!

This afternoon in Y5/6 Family Learning the children took part in different activities linked to our expedition. I enjoyed hosting a Ready Steady Cook challenge and we had a fantastic time creating healthy and creative dishes. Well done everyone – I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

We are Scientists! – Crew Myers

Yesterday, we enjoyed our first science experiment of the case study where we investigated the process of solids turning into liquids. I was really impressed with all the scientific vocabulary that was used when writing our predictions and methods! Well done everyone – I wonder what our next investigation will be?

Crew Myers – Roll on the wall!

Yesterday during maths, we worked in groups to recreate a model to support us when completing column multiplication. This has really helped everyone’s accuracy when solving calculations and supported us this afternoon when multiplying 3 numbers. Great collaboration guys these are a fab resource – remember to go back and use these when you need a reminder!

Our changing state experiment!

We’ve been scientists and writers in today’s expedition lesson. We’ve loved this morning investigating how the temperature can change when a block of ice changes state.

As well as getting smart with our scientific knowledge, we’ve also used this experiment to work on our writing features too as we wrote up our experiment and plotted the results on to a graph.

Well done guys, I’m proud of how sensible you conducted yourselves during this investigation and your great predictions you had.

Thank you! National Numeracy Day

We had great fun celebrating National Numeracy Day on the 18th May! As a school, we helped to break a Guinness World Record for the amount of viewers on a live Youtube video! How exciting!

Thank you to those parents who sent me lots of lovely photographs of their children finding and practising maths in their local environments!

Check out some of the fun we had below.

Nursery: Jonah and the Whale

This morning we had a visit from Pastor Kevin from Thorne Pentecostal Church. He told us the story of Jonah and the Whale. We listened so carefully to how God looked after Jonah by keeping him safe inside the big fish. We also enjoyed singing songs and dancing together. Thank you Pastor Kevin for another great assembly! The children had a brilliant time!
