DT project: Food 16th and 17th December 2021

As part of our DT project, we had to design and make a main course meal which contained food from each of the food groups-therefore, our meals were healthy. All children created fantastic meals and really surprised themselves; they can actually cook! They all enjoyed the preparation and cooking and especially the eating! They were all super at helping tidy up and wash all of the equipment we had used too. Here are some pictures of us:

FOREST WEEK Fanwood Scout Camp -8th October

What a fantastic day we had! We took part in fun activities such as bouldering, low ropes and bush-craft. We even got to light our very own fire and toast marshmallows! We worked amazingly well in our teams with  children from Year 3. We were super supportive of our young friends, encouraging them every step of the way. Here are some pictures:

 

FOREST WEEK This Green Moon- 7th October

What a fabulous time we had at This Green Moon! We made some amazing volcanoes out of materials that we had foraged for in the the forest. Some even looked like they had ash clouds above them and actual explosions! We created a mini version of Pompeii and nearby town, Herculaneum, which were destroyed in the famous eruption of 79AD. 'Mount Vesuvius' even erupted! Check out our photos:

 

R.E- 6th October

This afternoon, we learnt that the Holy Spirit gives us special gifts to share and spread to others. We looked at the Fruits of the Spirit and the virtues and thought about how we display these in our lives and make our contribution to the Kingdom of God. We did a treasure hunt around our classrooms to find key characteristics of each of the Fruits of the Spirit. 

 

Science

 This half-term we are learning about The Circulatory System. We are learning about how the heart works, the main components of blood and the function of the different types of blood vessels. We are also learning  about how water is transported through the body and developing our understanding of the importance of water to human health.

Today, we made ‘blood soup’ as an illustrative practical activity to help us find out about how the different parts of blood enable it to carry oxygen, waste gases, nutrients and water. We then compiled a fact file. 

 

Mount St Mary's Taster morning - 29th September

 We had a great morning at Mount St Mary's High School where we took part in 3 different lessons as a taster of what they offer their students. Our fitness session in the gym made our hearts race when we had to complete 200m on the rowing machines for our team. Next, was Art and turning coffee splatters into monsters! Finally, was the library session in the former chapel.  What a fab school!

Herd Farm-  13th-15th September

 We had an amazing time at Herd Farm bonding with each other and trying new activities. We all pushed ourselves to our limits and feel very proud of our achievements.
