We found out that for an electrical circuit to work, the circuit had to be complete with no gaps. We used an energy ball and all held hands to make the circuit complete. The energy travelled through us and the ball made a noise. If anyone let go of their partner’s hand, they caused a gap in the circuit so

We have started our Science topic, Electrical Circuits and Conductors. We beganby giving the children one wire, one battery and one bulb and challenging them to light the bulb! Then they had a go at making some other simple series circuits using different electrical components.
The children have now finished their William Morris inspired fabric prints. They embellished them by sewing on some beads and sequins and adding different kinds of stitches. We think they all did an amazing job.
Year 3 and 4 had a great time at their Easter Disco. Thank you to all the parents for their continued support in helping us raise lots of money for school fund.
We tried hard to follow our design and do some block printing in the style of William Morris. After the Easter holiday we will be adding some embellishments to our printed fabric.
We enjoyed following a musical score and tried hard to play the instruments at the right time!
Thank you to al the children who have entered our school Science Fair competition. We have been so impressed by all your hard work. All the entries will be on display in the school hall after Easter.
We all had a go at hemming a piece of fabric. We are going to use these to make a William Morris inspired design of our own using the printing blocks that we have experiemented with. Our teachers were really impressed with how quickly we developed our sewing techniques.
We were all super excited by the snow today, so we decided to save our writing task for another time and enjoy having some fun before it all melted!
We tasted different flavoured jellybeans and decided on our most and least favourite. We have saved the results and are going to make a human graph to represent our data when the weather is drier! We used our maths skills to decide how many of each flavour we would choose if we could have 1000 jellybeans.
