Welcome back to a new term. 

 

I hope you all had a fantastic half term. We are going to be scientists this term and look at Electricity in our topic 'Its Shocking'. We are very excited to turn on our science brains and explore electricity. You may have noticed children coming home with balloons today......we have started by looking at static electricity and used balloons to perform some experiments with our hair, jumpers, carpets and tissue paper to create positive charges. We made all the atoms in our hair positively charged so they repelled each other! We then made the atoms on tissue paper positively charged so they could stick to our negatively-charged balloons. It has been a lot of fun and with more fun experiments to come it is going to be a very interesting topic. I have even bought us a plasma ball for us to use in the classroom.

Our Day in York

 

We had a fantastic fun-filled day in York on 6th October. We started by visiting a Viking in DIG who taught us all about Viking weaponry and how many 'weapons' were also tools such as the bow and arrow and the axe. We learnt about battle formations and scare tactics and scared the life out of Mrs Beedle with our terrifying yells and ferocious expressions.

We went on to Yorvik where we took a ride around the Viking Coppergate and learnt all about Viking life.

Thank to everyone for coming to our Harvest service. The children loved performing for you and we hoped that you really enjoyed it!

We will be looking at the Smashing Saxons and Vicious Vikings and their invasion of British Isles in Autumn term 1. It will be a very exciting look at their customs, way of life and their impact on us today. We will be visiting Yorvik museum in week 5 to get a totally immersive experience of Viking life. We will take an exciting look at the hero Beowulf and some of the Viking myths and legends.
