For our Extreme Explorers topic we have been learning all about rivers and the water cycle! We have created our own rivers during an experiment on the school playground and we have begun creating some fantastic art work to learn lots more. Take a look at us in action, we’ve also learnt the water cycle song! WARNING! It gets stuck in your head, very quickly! Be sure to show your loved ones the dance moves to the song… IMG_4211 IMG_4237 IMG_4263

Half term Homework for Class 8. /


Click the link above that says ‘newspaper to read’. It’s your copy of Februarys ‘FIRST NEWS’.
Over the holidays can you read the newspaper and answer the ‘News Quiz’ questions that I have printed out for you. If you loose the questions,  they are in the newspaper (Page 26) so you can copy them on to a sheet of paper and write your answers underneath! (No excuses! 🙂 )

Enjoy learning about our world and the current news, I look forward to finding out what you have learnt when we return. Homework should be completed and handed to me on the FIRST MONDAY BACK.

Thank you. Miss Ransom

We have a very important job, we have been asked by Cannon Hall to research, design, make and test model Anderson Shelters. These may be used during their workshops to help educate other children. Yesterday we began our project and we looked at strength and stability because we know how important these properties are when making our own shelters. Today we have moved on to making! We have made prototypes and discussed the changes we may need to make to improve the shelter. Now we are making the real deal! Take a look at our learning journey so far….

What have you learnt?

Why is your Anderson Shelter  strong?

What changes did you make when making your shelter?

What have you enjoyed about your learning so far?

History has it’s eyes on you…. /

Today in Topic, we are looking at the attributes of leaders, In particular Churchill and Hitler. We have discussed how their characteristics led them to power. We have explored this through discussion and art. During the last part of the afternoon, class 8 are beginning to building their art skills and are working towards creating a sketch of both leaders to create an original piece of art work. I’m beyond excited to see the final pieces, I’m sure you I’ll be too, just look at the attention to detail! image image image image image image image image image

SCIENCE WEEK! What kind game will you create? /

This week is Science Week and we are exploring forces and magnets.

Darth Vader has set us a challenge to design and create a game that uses magnetic force to attract materials.

Can you think of any ideas for an exciting magnetic game? For example – You could make storm trooper characters, and they have to escape from a maze? Or,  you could use magnets to race 2 spaceships around a difficult track!

I’m sure you will have some amazing ideas! Use your imagination and please share them by commenting below.

May the force be with you…
