We had an amazing time toasting marshmallows on an open fire. There were deliciously gooey!
With Year 6 using our classrooms for SATs this week, it gave us the perfect excuse to spend the majority of our mornings outside in the nature area completing a whole range of activities. We have absolutely loved it (even though some of us suffered a few nettle stings!)
Whilst we were outside doing forest schools, we stopped to make some friendship bracelets. We have loved doing this!
I'm really sorry for what you're about to see! In science, we've been focussing on classification and in particular, micro-organisms. We decided to explore this in more detail and chose a question to investigate:
1) Which surfaces contain the most amount of bacteria?
2) How effective is washing your hands with soap?
3) What are the best conditions for preventing mould?
We used slices of bread to investigate these areas. The results were pretty grim after three weeks...
We recently went to the Abbey Theatre in Nuneaton to have a tour behind the scenes and complete some drama activities. It was really interesting to see how much work goes into putting on a performance. We really enjoyed the drama activities too!
As part of our topic, we learnt about the journey a river takes from sources to mouth. To show this, we went outside to create a model of a river and labelled the features.
