The children has a lovely last week before Christmas: they enjoyed the Aladdin Pantomime, performing in the Talent Show the Christmas lunch, the Carol Concert and Party day. The children said 'Goodbye and Good Luck' to Ellis and Mrs Bennett.
The children used their knowledge of how to make a circuit to design and make a Christmas decoration that lights up! They had a brilliant time and their decorations were amazing!!!
The children had a great time learning a dance routine to 'Rocking around the Christmas Tree' with Miss Foley.
The children have been learning how to play hockey, learning how to dribble. pass, tackle and shoot. Each week they practised their skills and played against each other. St Trinian's beware!!!!
SCIENCE-MAKING A CIRCUIT
The children were challenged to make a bulb light up or to make a motor move using a range of equipment including bulbs and bulb holders/ motors, batteries (cells) and wires. They had to make a circuit and had a great time exploring and investigating. They all succeeded in the end!
SCIENCE: Making a switch
The children made a switch to include in their circuit. Then they had fun testing it out.
The children had a brilliant time at the Walker Art Gallery looking at portraits and drawing/sketching King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I. They also made a good impression on the public as many people commented on how well behaved they were.! I was very proud of them all.
