The children of 4th class created some amazing projects on bees for our biodiversity flag. Below is just a selection of some of the amazing projects. Very creative work !!
Rang a 5 took part in the Breakout EDU digital game of “school daze”. Only one group broke out in the 30 mins. Breakout EDU brings the 4 C’s alive, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication. Successful participants work together to solve clues to open the digital lock. It is not as easy as it seems as there is a digital clock counting down from 30 mins while you work.
We recently received a cutiosity box and put it to the test. The children had to follow the instructions to build a bridge using only plastic straws and tape. Some found it particularly challenging while others thought it was a piece of cake. We then tested whose bridge was the strongest and could hold most weight.
Seeing the magic behind this chemical reaction.
How it works:
Milk is made up of mostly water but it does contain vitamins, minerals, proteins and small droplets of fat. The fat and proteins are super sensitive to changes in the milk and so when the dishwashing liquid is added a chemical reaction occurs.
The soap and fat work hard to join together, which causes the movement. When food colouring is added we are able to witness this chemical reaction occurring.
We were very lucky to have had a visit from Margaret in Dela restaurant. She spoke to a number of classes about how they grow the majority of the food that they use in their restaurant in their 100ft long polytunnel right here in our village. We planted a number of different seeds which she has kindly taken back to her polytunnel to get them started. When they are ready to plant out we will plant them in our school garden. We hope to harvest them before the end of the school term and make something delicious from it.
5th class made a video to explain the rules of 4 square to the younger classes.
5th class used the iPads to find 2D and 3D shapes around the school. They found some great examples.
