Super writing from home

Daisy has used the skill she has learnt during writing lessons and has written a story at home! She included repetition and an extended noun phrase.

Celebration time!

Day and night

In science today, Class 11 learnt about how Day and night is made and why summer days are longer and winter days are shorter. They used a model (not to scale) using a polystyrene ball, torch and skewer.

The class remembered how the axis is invisible and it sits on a tilt – they learnt this when visiting the Planetarium.

They also added the equator to their model and labelled the Northern and Southern Hemisphere.

Well done!

Well done to Louis, Lennon and Bill! This week they have show great enthusiasm towards their work. Louis has shown he can improve his handwriting and write beautifully in his books. Lennon and Bill have shown great focus and determination with their place value work. Well done boys!

The Black Hole Planetarium

On Monday the children in Year 5 visited the Planetarium set up in school. They had a wonderful time learning about the planets, stars and space. The constellations were a big hit with the children as they saw them brightly above their heads. Mr Allen also explained how the could spot some constellations in the sky by looking for specific shapes. Make sure you have a look on the next clear night Year 5!
