We carried out an investigation into burning today as part of science week. We wanted to see if anything that is burnt always gets smaller…we knew this happened with log fires..wood turns into ash after a fire… watch the video and see what happens in our experiment. The children will write up their notes soon and we will add them to the video.
Children from Hevingham and Marsham took part in the AHS Dodgeball tournament run by Mrs Zulu and the year 10’s. It was great fun – we all really loved it.
Our theme this term in class 2 has been “Where are the wild things?” We have spent time researching and finding out about wild animals that live in the region. We went on a trip to see the seals and seal pups at Horsey Gap and in PE we looked at the way animals move and tried to create some movements of our own. Here is an example of Acer performing his movement to music.
Children came to school today dressed as a character from their favourite book. Everyone made a fantastic effort with outfits and props to bring each character to life! Thank-you to all the parents who went out of their way to support their children in doing this. Reading is one of the most fundamentally important life skill and research shows that confident readers usually excel in many other areas of life. Below are some photographs of our outfits.
The Year 3/4/5 children from Marsham had a fantastic trip to the Sainsbury Centre of Visual Arts. It began with a tour around the gallery, some sketching of objects and then ended with the children taking part in a workshop to create their own masks. The children had a brilliant time learning about different portraits and the purpose of masks.
We are using our outdoor environment to help us with our learning! Our philosophical question this term is – Why do we need to protect our environment? All of our work is based around this question.
We learn in lots of different ways!
Our teacher’s read stories in the evening at our fabulous bedtime reading café!
