Activities, Visits & Trips 2019-20
As part pf Black History Month we’ve been looking at significant individuals in history. This afternoon we had a sport theme and we looked at the impact Jesse Owens made at the 1936 Berlin Olympics in Hitler’s Germany, winning 4 gold medals. One of the events he won was the long jump, which we tried ourselves.
This week in Science we have been exploring the effects of gravity and air resistance. We were tasked with creating a parachute that would support an egg being dropped from a height without smashing. We had to think about the balance between the weight of the object, the surface area of the parachute and the materials we were using.
We have a new addition to Class 4!! Each class decided to make their own scarecrow for Harvest. This is Farmer Bob, Class 4’s very originally named class scarecrow who comes complete with his own PPE.
This afternoon we’ve been investigating the effects of gravity on different objects. We did some research into who Sir Isaac Newton was and why he is such an important scientific figure. We then used newton meters to investigate how and why the amount of gravity acting on an object changes.
The Forest School children really enjoyed their afternoon exploring the wildlife garden. They whittled sticks to make fishing rods and explored the area to find different types of insects and bugs.
Since we have come back to school we have been doing a lot of work in PSHE about settling in and how we feel in new situations. We shared ideas for our class charter about what we think our rules and expectations should be and then we created comic strips about new scenarios. We also shared stories about how we have felt in different situations…
