Year 2 Science

11/11/19

This week in Science, Year 2 have been testing materials to see whether they are absorbent or not. The children were armed ready with cups of water to test the materials. 

First they tested Miss Kierans and Mrs Judge’s wellie boots to see if they let the water in. Then they threw the water at tin foil followed by cotton wool. The children were impressed that so far all their predictions were correct. 

Then came the final test of absorbency – teacher’s clothes! Every child was given a cup of water and by the end we established that the clothes absorb ALL the water that is thrown at them!!

Year 5 Skyline Silhouettes

05/11/19

As part of our World War 2 topic, Year 5 looked at artwork based on the Blitz, when German planes dropped huge numbers of bombs on London. At this time, the night sky in London was often lit up by the explosions of bombs or the flames from burning buildings. The children’s artwork really effectively shows the contrast between the blacked-out buildings at night and the sky, which looks like it is on fire.

First, we used pastels or coloured pencils to create the effect of the ‘burning sky’, with some of us using smudging to give our backgrounds a smoky look.

   

    

 

After that, we cut black paper in the shape of the London skyline, along with German bombers and their bombs. Look at our fantastic finished artwork!

On Friday 8th November we will be holding our commemoration event for Armistice Day, and children will gather around the school garden where they will sing a song and there will be 2 poems read.

 

Our Year 6 pupils will be selling poppies in school tomorrow (Tuesday 5th November). If your child would like a poppy please send them in with a donation for the Royal British Legion to be put in their special collection boxes.

 

******************************************************

 

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.
