Today a new group of Year 6s went to Pelham House to read to the residents. The pupils really enjoyed reading to the residents and the residents enjoyed being read to. Tiki had a really good time as she loves everyone there and everyone is always so pleased to see her.
Today we awarded our first lot of kindness certificates. As part of our 40 acts of generosity for Lent these children wrote super lists telling us what they were grateful for. These can be seen on an earlier blog.
Today in worship we were able to celebrate our guitarists who have won copper and bronze awards. These show just how accomplished they have become at playing the guitar.
As part of their work on irreversible reactions Yr. 6 made elephant toothpaste. They used hydrogen peroxide which split into water and oxygen. This reaction was sped up using a catalyst – in this case yeast. Foam was produced on a large scale, maybe there was even enough to clean the teeth of an elephant!
To help us empathise with one of the main characters – Marshall – in our class book, we made video diaries. These diaries explained why Marshall acted the way he did and how it was affecting him. They were so good that we wanted to share some of them with you.
Eighteen children from Yr.4,5 and 6 headed to The Three Hills to play in a 7 aside tournament. Each team played ten matches so got a lot of game time. It was great fun, both teams won some of their games and definitely improved their skills throughout the day.
