  • Making machines... Year 2 investigates!

    date posted: 24/03/21

    Last week, Year 2 followed a set of instructions they had written themselves to make playdough. They had to identify the features of recipes and non-fiction instruction texts before writing their own playdough recipes. 

    This week, Year 2 have finished their topic on forces by making simple machines to make work easy. We designed and then made levers, pulleys and wheeled vehicles to lift heavy loads onto the roof for a new roof playground.  They consolidated their knowledge of pivots, push and pull forces and making work easy through this hands-on activity.

    Year 2 enjoyed making a moon and star decoration to supplement their learning on Islam and Ramadan in their Project Afternoon. 

    Year 5 were learning about the heart in Science, and had fun dissecting a pig's heart. They identified the different parts of the heart and investigated how the blood flows in and out of each chamber.

    Miss Vivyan's challenge this week was "Extreme Reading"
    Thank you so much for all your entries to Extreme Reading (and for the many others I have received over the last 8 weeks). There were so many excellent photographs: reading on clouds, reading upside down, in the bath, in wardrobes, on the dinner table, on bikes, up trees and many more. I could not decide who should win, so instead I gave everyone who entered 10 house points! The photos will be displayed at school for you to see—here are a few of them...
