Today we learnt how our moon works it was very fun and fascinating because we used OREOS! We found out that the moon didn’t disappear it is just the shadow and at we got to eat the OREOS in our groups. These are some of the names of the moon the full moon, the Gibbous moon, the crescent moon and the new moon.🌕🌖🌓🌒🌑🌘🌗🌔🙂🤯
First we put our knee and elbow pads on.Then we put on are helmets. And then we held on to our partners hand and jumped on to are skateboard. Then we held the persons hand and pushed down the playground. After that, we learnt how to push off all on our own. We learnt how to flick the skateboard. This was easy…with practice.
We had lots of fun and hope to do it again.

Well….an exciting Tuesday morning always starts with drawing on the table, doesn’t it? Some brilliant maths produced today 🙂
A brilliant surprise for Lime class! They got to take part in fencing on Monday afternoon and all showed great potential. They will be completing this as part of their P.E in term 1. Excitingly, they even get the chance to gain a qualification at the end!
What a brilliant start to the term! Lime class have settled in nicely as we explored our new class reading book, wrote our own blurbs, discussed place value and designed a picture which captured the story of Genesis.
A whole year of excitement and learning ahead 🎒📚
Today in art we finished are Harry Potter silhouettes . We styled the background to look like Vinson Van Gogh artwork. Here are 3 examples. They all turned out very well. We had loads of fun and we would love to do them again!
This afternoon, in topic we learnt about irreversible and reversible changes. To start of the lesson we did an irreversible potion by mixing vinegar and milk together to make a modelling clay sort of like play dough. Then we got sorted into four groups two sets of three and two sets of four. On a sheet in our groups we had to fill out answer and predict what might happen most of us predicted it would foam fizz and erupt. We used jugs and spoons for our equipment. We put vinegar in pots and filled it up (1tsp) with bicarbonate of soda. The reaction happened and it erupted out of some jugs.
Today in the morning year 5+6 and also some year fours to even it up competed in the house rounders competition. Jupiter won with Venus in close second Mercury in third with Mars house coming forth place. We all had lots of fun running and smashing the ⚾️. All of us did really well and played a big part of houses.
Today we had a fire talk and Caroline , the instructor,told us how to keep safe if there is a fire in our house. We also watched a couple of examples of how a fire could start. She said that even the tiniest things could set alight! Unbelievably they also go onto lakes and rivers to go and save someone. They help animals and people from houses that are set on fire. We were given a few activities to try and solve:
- Were are the dangers in this living room.
- What do you have to have to start a fire.
- In a house place the fires and try and find the quickest and safest route to get out.
We really enjoyed it!

In maths we were mixing potions and finding the capacity of the potion. To find how much of each ingredient we needed we had to work out maths questions the ingredients were:frogs breath,mountain haze,troll bogies,inky slime,tear drops of faerie and to finish our potions we needed dragon’s blood but before we could use it we needed to answer a maths question. We enjoyed making lots of different I
