Are You Fit and Healthy?
Led by Curie Class, we took part in a fitness session to check how fit and healthy we all are. The children joined in various drills and exercises, helped by Coach Chris and Curie pupils and had a great time.
Science - Reversible and Irreversible Changes
In Science we have been investigating the processes involved in making reversible and irreversible changes. We took three different solids (salt, flour and headache tablet) and added water to see whether they would dissolve and also if the original solid could be recovered from the solution.
Anti Bullying Week 2017
This week marks Anti Bullying Week 2017. Lovelace children have been learning about treating each other fairly and equally. They now understand that although we are all different individuals, we are the same in different ways. Working together they thought about how they could solve difficult playground situations. They all tried to write their own recipes for 'Good Friends'. #All Different All Equal.
Celebrating Great Handwriting
What an achievement! Lily, Eli and Evie have been awarded their 'pen licences' for consistently using good handwriting. We look forward to reading some of their fantastic work in the coming months.
A Journey to School
This week in French, children used simple symbols to represent features in the locality. By the end of the lesson they were starting to read and understand short journey descriptions.
Angles and Symmetry
This week Lovelace children are learning about lines of symmetry and angles. After working out what lines of symmetry each shape had, they moved on to measuring and drawing angles using protractors.
Following on from writing their own advertisements scripts, Ada Lovelace class children have been performing them in front of their peers. The children were commenting on features that they liked and suggesting ways each advertisement could be improved.
