Senior Friends’ Day in 4th

We had a lovely day on Friday 27th, when the senior friends of the 4th class children came to visit. They were met at the gate by some lovely 6th class pupils who showed them to the classrooms.

The children were able to share songs and poems and games with their  friends. They showed how they learn using new technologies. Some of the Senior Friends had stories of their own school experiences to tell.

After the classroom visits it was off to the hall for a much needed cup of tea and a chat.

We want to thank the 4th class teachers for facilitating  this visit, the parish Grandparents Group, for coming along and acting as extra senior friends and of course all the Grannies, Grandads, friends and neighbours who responded so enthusiastically  to the children’s invitations to attend.

Senior Friend Day in 4th Class

We are so excited to announce that on Friday, May 27th our 4th class pupils are having a Senior Friend Day at school.

Rooms 23 and 24  will host any available seniors from 9.30am to 11.00 am in their upstairs classrooms.

Rooms 17 and 18 will host their guests from 10:15am  to 11:45 am in their downstairs rooms.

Guests should arrive via the main gate where they will be met by some sixth class pupils who will show them the way to the classrooms.

After the classroom visits and entertainment the guests will be shown to the hall for a cup of tea and a chat.  

As some children will not have a Senior Friend to invite, we are hoping the guests that come will allow us to be share them with a few  other children in the class !

 

Parachute egg drop Room 27

The children in 5th class Room 27 have been busy making parachutes this week while working on their STEM Egg drop activity. They have been investigating and experiementing about the  the effects of air resistence and gravity on their parachute.

First they dropped an egg on its own. Then they tried out their parachutes with their eggs attached using a variety of materials. The times were kept very carefully by the time keepers! They discovered that gravity pulls the object down and air resistance slows the fall. Parachutes are used to slow the fall of an object by increasing air resistance which reduces the effect of gravity!
