We’ve had a fantastic day today for World Book Day. We dressed up, listened to lots of stories and had lots of fun. The children went into different classrooms and did a different workshop in each class. They wrote book reviews, made bookmarks, cut and stuck pictures and had a go at performance poetry. All in all, we had a great day.
Don’t forget that the St. Philips Book Fair is sill on tomorrow, Friday 8th March, in the spare classroom if you want to spend your tokens. You have until 31st March to spend your £1 tokens. You can use them in any bookshop. Happy spending and happy reading!
We had a go at making our own experiments thinking about how to conduct fair tests. We made helicopters and then used different masses to see how they would change the rate of descent. The children thought about what they would have to do to make their tests fair and they came up with some great ideas.
We had great fun with our Boomwhackers! Mr Taylor-Weekes came in and showed us how to play these fantastic instruments. The children then had a go at accompanying Mr Taylor-Weekes in a piece of music. Have a listen to the end result below!
Well done to Edward who showed brilliant scientific reasoning skills in our science lesson this week. He had some fantastic suggestions to make our tests fair. He also offered interesting predictions as to what might happen when we drop home-made helicopters with different masses from the same height. Edward is an amazing scientist!
I am so pleased with the quality of work Joseph H is producing. It is neat and well thought out. He is becoming a good editor of his work and always strives to produce excellent work. What more could I ask for?
We are looking at fairy tales this term in Nightingale class, so for cooking week, we thought that it would be fitting to make some gingerbread men… Luckily, none of them tried to escape!
We have some potential curling Olympians in the making! Olive, Josh and Joe have shown exceptional skills in our New Age Kurling game, hitting their targets with good accuracy. They are even playing strategically, trying to knock their opponents’ stones out of play. Excellent work.
Nathanael is such a polite boy. He always says please and thank you and opens doors for people. He really makes my classroom a happy place to work. Thank you, Nathanael!
We have had lots of fun in our PE session today. We tried out some New Age Kurling. The children got their ‘eye’ in quickly and really enjoyed it. We will have some championships in a few weeks time.
Have a restful Christmas Nightingale Class. See you in 2019!
