Science - Plants

 

Science

To start our new Science topic, we all planted beans to take home.  Throughout the school closure we would like you to take care of your plant and keep  a weekly diary of the changes you see. Each time you observe your plant draw a diagram of what you see, label it and write a sentence eg:  week 1- There is no evidence of any shoots yet then draw the plant pot with the compost in.  Label it plant pot, compost and indicate here the bean is under the compost.

Lookout for first shoots, first leaves, first proper leaves, more new leaves, first flowers, first beans.  Take measurements every week.  When the plant becomes too big for the pot, plant it outside.  You will need to support it with a stick and you will need a grown up to help you with the measurements as it will probably grow taller than you!

Year 3 and 4 residential trip to Ilam Hall.

Here are a selection of photographs of the children enjoying the various activities. They completed a selection of team building games, made egg rockets, completed a small and large orienteering course, went on a guided walk to find fossils, learned how to walk in mud with only a bit of falling over, made dragonfly beads , designed and made a bag to keep and went on a photographic treasure hunt. While we were there it was sunny, windy, rainy, hail and best of all, when we woke up on Wednesday morning it had snowed. The children have had a fabulous experience.

Anti-bullying week 

 

This week is national anti-bullying week. We had lots of discussion around what bullying is and came up with our own definition. We also talked about STOP:

several 

times 

on 

purpose. 

 

We we looked at different scenarios and decided whether they were bullying, conflict or neither. The children then did freeze frames of different scenarios and discussed the feelings of the bully and the victim.

This afternoon the children researched an Egyptian God and presented their information to the rest of the class. 

Mr Egypt 

 

We were very lucky to have Mr Egypt in school today to launch our Ancient Egyptian topic. We started our day with the Geography of Egypt and learnt that people settled along the river banks of the Nile (the longest river in the world). We also handled 2 amulets that are over 3,000 years old! 

 

We we looked at Bedouins and how they still live like the Ancient Egyptians: they cook their bread for breakfasts in exactly the same way and once the sun goes down, they dance and sing to ward off evil spirits. 

 

We we couldn’t believe that children started work at 5 (if they were boys) and girls then started to learn the jobs of the home. They didn’t wear clothes until they were 5! Children were brought up to be well behaved and quiet. They played games like draughts and snakes and ladders, similar to us today. They also had dolls.
