It was great to see so many parents at consultations last week. The children's beautiful animal poems are now on display in the classroom and hall - here are a few for you to read...
Affinity Water - lots of games and facts about the environment.
14.3.19 Classroom science activities
From potato powered clocks to erupting volcanoes, from quacking cups to dancing magnets, from electrical circuits to floating flowers, Beech class have been experimenting hard this morning. The variety of chemistry, biology and physics in one room was vast! The children have had a brilliant morning and behaved really sensibly with the different activities. I think it's safe to say "We all love Science!".
Our first day of Science Week kicked off to a brilliant start with young Scientists from the North School Ashford giving our children hands on experience with lots of exciting experiments...
Welcome back to Term 4!
The children have done some fantastic work writing news reports in Literacy and written multiplication and division in Maths. We have started our new topic on Forces in Science and year 4 have been having fun in Forest School.
The class have been learning how to be still like frogs - a mindful technique to aid concentration and promote self awareness and wellbeing. We have found that this is already helping in lessons and I hope the children enjoy having a few moments to just "be"! Rosa and Saoirse's mum has kindly lent us a book of Mindful exercises which helps children deal with anxiety, improve concentration and handle difficult emotions, so we will continue with these over the next term.
Have a lovely weekend!
