In our science lesson today, Year 1 were experimenting with absorbent and non-absorbent materials. The children had to submerge a material into the water and check if the material soaks up the water or it repels and slide of the material.
Mrs McInroy and the School Council launched Anti Bullying Week at assembly as the children explained this year's theme 'One Kind Word - or phrase'.
All children will be engaged in doing lots of kind acts next week and hopefully beyond.
Children have been asked to wear odd socks to school on Monday to celebrate their individuality.
In one of our geography lessons this week, the children went on a field walk around our school. We looked at our school’s local area and discussed the features we could see and hear around us.
The children had to answer the following questions and later draw a picture of what they saw.
Is our school’s local area very noisy?
Are there any fields near our school?
Are there lots of buildings near our school?
What are the roads like near our school?
As our Maths starter today, Year 1 were following instructions to ordinate coloured multilink cubes. To begin the lesson they chose the coloured link after each instruction, as we moved further into the lesson, the children were able to make the structures using muscle memory.
What an amazing time Years 1-6 had during their sports days this week! We were very lucky with the weather as the rain held off.
It was a fantastic morning or afternoon, with the pupils performing brilliantly. They displayed determination, perseverance, team spirit and a great amount of effort.
Class teams were awarded points for each activity and then all the activities combined for a total score. The team with the most points in each class were the winners. The children will find out the winning team in each class on Tuesday.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to Coach Smokie and Josh for making it such a fun event after a hectic year.
