Is it too early? No, it’s never too early. Check out our Winter Scene window display in Second Class. Lovely work.
First Class were very busy investigating & experimenting this week, as we celebrated Science Week 2020.
We discovered a rainbow of colours as we dissolved a solid into a liquid state.
We investigated the importance of using soap when washing our hands. We were amazed to see how much the germs disike soap!
We also explored the power of forces & energy as we made rockets & created balloon rockets. We watched in amazement as they whizzed through the air.
We all worked really hard at creating our very own STEM structures, using only marshmallows & spaghetti.
We really had a lot of fun this week
Check out our poor little apple. We have been observing it all week. It has been immersed in water, vinegar and lemon juice. Of course we also have a control to compare our results. We might keep it going for another week and see what happens, yuk!
Due to Covid 19 we are unable to hold our annual Hallowe’en Fancy Dress sponsored walk this year. We hope to be able to hold a similar fundraiser later in the school year.
However, we will have a Hallowe’en Fancy Dress Friday on 23rd October. All the children can dress up in their favourite Hallowe’en costume on the day. We look forward to seeing all the fabulous outfits and creations!
Due to Covid 19 we will not be collecting any shoeboxes this year. Team Hope have gone online. Please click on the links below to see their information poster and to download/print some colouring pages:
