Optical Illusions

After a busy morning of Maths and English, Year 6 group 2 became artists this afternoon and created some great optical illusions. Using simple lines, space and colours they learned how to create art that tricks the eyes. We were impressed with all the work, particularly Hongxin who amazed us with her use of colour and shading skills. Well done.

Great first day back

The children in Year 6 Group 2, had a fantastic first day back at school. As Mathematicians, they had fun doing 2 metre maths which helped demonstrate the safe distance they need to keep. They created some amazing posters highlighting the different ways in which we can keep safe in school. The children also had the opportunity to choose their new reading books and it was amazing how many of them wanted some time to read independently. In the afternoon, the children used watercolours to create rainbow landscapes. Well done Year 6 for showing all of our school values today, we are very proud of you all!

Measuring trees

As part of Science Week, Year 3 investigated how tall their favourite tree was. By choosing a tree from the school field, the children found out that by by walking away from it and using a trundle wheel they were able to get a rough measurement of the tree’s height.

Rowing competition

This morning, a group of Year 6 children represented our school in a Coventry West Rowing Competition. The event, which tests the children’s endurance, hosts many local primary schools over the course of the day. Our children showed great discipline and trained for the competition during their breaks and lunchtimes. We are so proud of you all and await the final results from the organisers.

Biscuit dunking

Year 6 were Scientists this afternoon, investigating biscuits and their dunking times in tea. They made predictions, carried out fair tests and wrote about their experiment and results. The children were unanimous in their findings, with the Custard Cream and Bourbon Cream being the biscuits which could be dunked the longest before finally breaking in the tea.

Fractions

This morning, Year 2 had a fun Maths lesson learning all about fractions. They were given pieces of paper and were asked to fold them into halves and quarters (we even had some eighths and tenths!). The children all showed great enthusiasm for learning different parts of a whole.

Art in the sun

As part of Science linked with Art, Year 6 looked at how light travels and casts a shadow. We took advantage of the sun and went outside to create some great sketches of objects with their individual shadows. A great start to your first day back after the holidays, Year 6.

Reflection in nature

Continuing their learning of light, Year 3 looked at reflections made by nature. The children examined pictures of landscapes which had beautiful reflections in clear and still water. They then designed their own reflective landscapes using watercolour pencils. We had some lovely scenic pictures. Well done Year 3.

Resilience in Year 6

Year 6 had a visit from the school nursing team this afternoon, to talk about resilience. The informative session educated the children about the effects of drugs, smoking and alcohol and how best to handle peer pressure. The children took it in turns to wear beer googles to get a real feel for what negative effects alcohol has on co-ordination. Thank you to the nursing team from all of Year 6.

Tricks of light

Year 3 were Scientists this afternoon, looking at how light reflects and travels. They made their own periscopes using cereal boxes and mirrors and were absolutely amazed at how they could use them to see around corners and over and under things. The children even went into Year 6, where they saw Mrs MacDonald, and were keen to explain how their periscopes work. What great enthusiasm and enjoyment for Science Year 3!
