Serving the whole community
Those children who have strived for 5 (read 5 times every week) all this half term were allowed to make slime today. It was messier than Mrs Murray expected but it was so much fun it was definitely worth the mess!
Our sponsored walk at Buttermere was great fun, the scenery was amazing and hopefully we raised lots of money too!
We harvested our potatoes today and linked it to a lesson all about soil. We harvested an amazing crop and were over the moon that we had enough to take home and enjoy for tea. Mrs Temple was so excited she even photographed her potatoes on her plate!
We were delighted that County Councillor Paul Turner came to visit us today. We learnt lots of new information and even received a goodie bag.
We attended the Junior Citizenship Scheme activities at Whitehaven fire station. It was lots of fun and we learnt a great deal too. Back in school we created our own fire action plans and took them home to share with our families.
We created some World cup songs of our own and then performed them. Hopefully they will bring us luck and a trophy for England!
We experimented with local artist Sarah Taylor's technique of creating splatters by blowing paint with a straw. We are studying her work and hoping to create some work of our own in her style
We had a great time cooking today and produced some fantastic jam tarts with beautiful pastry, super shortbread and beautiful brownies. We obviously had to sample some but then got to take some home too. We wrote out the recipes in very easy to understand language and took these home too. Lets hope some people get cooking because it is a great activity to do with an adult.
Rocks and soils is our new science topic. We are learning lots and especially enjoyed being Rock Detectives.
This is us demonstrating how the circulatory system works. Can you see how some of the blood travelling around the body is oxygenated (red cards ) and some deoxygenated (blue cards). This practical lesson helped lots of us understand this complicated system much better than we did before.
We have thoroughly enjoyed starting our horticulture project. We have planted potatoes, peas, lettuce and broad beans. We have also had a very thorough clean up in the quadrangle. We are hoping to feast on our produce when its gets to harvesting time!
We are delighted with how our Anglo-Saxon village has turned out. We know the straw was messy (we did apologise to the wonderful cleaning ladies) but they agree it was worth it in the end!
Look at the pictures of our eggs from our science experiment about tooth decay. We are now experts about what we should drink and what drinks we should avoid if we want to look after our teeth!
Year 3 and 4 working on division. Ask us WHY we have to exchange. Ask us to explain exactly what we were doing
Roman Day at Whitehaven Beacon
Our class (KS2) play was great fun. Here we all are, dressed up ready to perform
Our science topic is Electricity, here we are building and testing circuits to find out if they are complete or incomplete. We also conducted an investigation to discover what materials are conductors and insulators
We have made our own advent calendars. The doors reveal topics we have been looking at in PHSE such as what we should be thankful for, how to solve problems we face, compliments we should give each other and how we should behave. We worked in teams to design and build them and are delighted with our calendars
Places of Worship. Year 5 and 6 researched and did some brilliant presentations about where different religions worship.
Do you know what a sitar is? It makes an amazing sound and we were very lucky to have it played to us.
Little Lifers First Aid Course. We had a fantastic afternoon and learnt a great deal of information. We are going to tell our families all about what we have learnt because one day we could save someone's life
We have studied the work of Peter Thorpe a keen artist and avid space fan. We created an abstract background (it was hard for us NOT to put the paintbrush on the paper!) and then placed our rockets in the foreground. We are delighted with the end result.
We are enjoying our earth and space topic. We made models which allowed the earth to orbit the sun and the moon to orbit the earth. We also researched the planets in our solar system and found out lots of amazing facts.
