Science- Properties of Materials

During our Science lessons we have been experimenting and investigating properties of materials such as: absorbency, themal insulation, disolving and separating solids. We have enjoyed investigating and have had a fantastic visit from Lab Rascals.

Eden Camp

During the Autumn Term we visited Eden Camp to find out about life during World War II.

Evacuee Day

We dressed as Evacuees and acted out the life of an Evacuee during World War II.

Year 5 and 6 Christmas Party

French Role-Play: L'Ecole des Stars

To practise having short converstions in French, we did some mock X-Factor auditions with our own judges and competing bands or acts.

The conversations between the judges and the candidates were all in French!

Photos ( and possibly videos ) to follow!

Lab Rascals

We had a visit from a group called Lab Rascals that worked with us on on Science Experiments to help us learn about States of Matter.
