Sycamore Class enjoyed several riveting science experiments throughout the week alongside some brilliant maths activities. The children were tasked with discovering maths in the real world.
During science this term, Sycamore Class have been learning about light. After mastering the concept of reflection, there was just enough time to create some periscopes. We also were privileged to go and share some stories with Y2 as part of World Book Day (great costumes by the way everyone) and crate some masks to celebrate Mardis Gras.
As part of mental health awareness, Sycamore Class have been growing some sunflowers. We were very excited to see the shoots begin to break through the soil.
To celebrate Number Day, Sycamore Class took part in a number of maths challenges throughout the day. This included problem solving, code breaking and even estimating Mr Branch’s weight.... some outrageous suggestions. Good fun was had by all and money raised for charity.
Sycamore Class consolidated their learning about light and shadow with a experiment to see what happens when an object is placed closer to a light source. Plenty of giggles and impromptu puppet shows too.
To prepare for Big Garden Birdwatch this year, Preston Primary School has installed a bird box for each class around the school. Thankfully, our eco team was on hand to supervise the installation and we will be keeping an eye out for any new residents over the next few weeks.
First full week back and it was like we have never been away. Extremely proud of how well the children have settled back into the routine. Good news is that prefects and reading buddies are back to work (socially distanced of course) and that we have a full class back.
First day back and first trip of the year. The children had a fantastic time learning about WWII and life in Britain. They did household chores (1940’s style) and took part in a simulated bombing raid. There was just enough time to become firefighters, and experience a 1940’s classroom. Think they might be glad to be back in 2022 with me though...
