Welcome to Blue Class!
As part of our topic ‘Is it too late to save our World?’ we created exploding volcanoes.
As part of our Electricity topic in Science we made our own circuits. We also followed circuit diagrams to test if the circuits would work.
In Blue class we investigated tooth decay using eggs. Although most of us predicted that the coke would be worst, we found out that orange juice actually produced the most decay.
Our Year 4 & 5 children and some of the animals they saw on our whole school visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
As part of this year’s well dressing service at Cutthorpe Institute, Rose, Clare and Divya (from Year 5) did readings. Despite being nervous they did a great job and represented the school extremely well. Take a look at the photographs of the girls by the school well dressing.
It was great to see other members of the school community supporting the event. Thank you to the parents who designed and led the children through the process of creating a well dressing picture.
One of the dishes we made as part of our work on fruit and vegetables was Spaghetti Bolognese. We found out all sort of interesting facts about tomatoes. Take a look at us preparing and enjoying the Spaghetti Bolognese.
In Year 5 we have been learning about the fruit and vegetable section of the Eatwell plate. We used our knowledge of seasonal fruits to design and make seasonal crumbles.
In March children from Years 5 & 6 went to London. After an early start, we arrived at the Houses of Parliament where we had a guided tour and then took part in a workshop on the Monarchy & Parliament. Next we went to the British Science Museum as part of our work during British Science Week. Once it started to get dark, it was time for the London Eye.
In year 4 we have been learning about where fish come from, how salmon are farmed and processed before they reach our plate. In the photographs you can see us preparing salmon and cod fish bites. They were delicious!
VISIT BY OUR LOCAL MP
Our School Council representatives recently invited Natascha Engel, MP, to visit. During the afternoon, children from Years 4, 5 & 6 and the School Council representatives were given the opportunity to ask thought provoking questions regarding her role as an Member of Parliament as well as current parliamentary issues.
INDIAN MANGO DESIGNS
As part of our topic work we have been exploring Indian mango designs, also known as Paisley designs. We looked at examples and then designed and created our own using Gutta and fabric paints. Have a look at us working on our designs and the completed wall hanging.
