To present our learning this term, we banked on visitors flowing into the classroom to see a wide range of work:
- Monet art
- river vocabulary
- life cycles
- Imovie making
- Amazonian base 6 maths
After tide-ying and a rocky start, the children used their mouths to describe and engage our visitors in conversations, and taught them all we knew by drip-feeding information. The confluence (confidence…) was very impressive!
The adults even made their own River creature movies with their own voice overs – all taught by the children. You can stream it below (actually, download, but that’s not a river pun.)
Water way to demonstrate their ex-sail-ent learning!
For our final H&A club this Autumn term, we went to seek out a pair of christmas trees; one for Hevingham and one for Marsham. We did some quick measuring, needing a tree approximately ‘Miss Greenfield’ tall, and another ‘Mr Gibbons and a half’ tall too. We then bundled our chosen beauties back into the minibus, and took them to their homes!
As part of the UEA research Park’s work into antibiotic resistance, Year 5 and 6 have made a film which explores how ABX work, and how they should be used safely!
We entered the film into a county wide competition, and we WON!
As well as the prestige of being film making champions, we also have won a free, all expenses paid trip to the science museum in LONDON!!!!!
Have a watch of the film, I’m sure you’ll see the skill in which the children acted and brought the bacteria and microbes to life!
Well done to Mile Cross Primary too, who created another spectacular film and will be visiting the museum too.
On the 22nd of March, many eager adults joined us to hear how our preparation for SATs testing has been going.
The children were ofcourse fantastic; our visitors mentioned that they were:
- chatty and knowledgable
- personable and confident
- well prepared and pleasant!
Well done, you confident bunch!
Our experiment this morning was to see how much energy was in food.
The children led the teaching, and after planning their lesson, taught the younger children about the chemical reaction of acid and zinc, and all groups explored what the potential energy of potatoes and lemons could be!
Our parent visitors were very enthusiastic:
“Great class experiment, engaging different year groups all helped each other – Very nice to see!”
“Interesting scientific experiment, proves you are never to old to learn.”
In preparation for our lovely year sixes moving off to Aylsham High School in two and a half months, the wonderful Friendly Faces team have come to show them the basics of being a bigger child!
