Science week

We had lots of fun during Science week. We worked on predictions and observation skills throughout the week. The children watched closely to see what would happen to the raisins when put into fizzy water. To our amazement, they started dancing!

 In phonics we wrote words ending in the “al” sound all over the petals of a paper flower. We then folded it up and put it into water. We couldn’t believe it when it opened up!

Our topic this term has been under the sea. We therefore watched a video about how plastic is effecting the oceans and particular the animals within it. We discussed what we could do to stop our seas from becoming full of rubbish. We created a giant whale made out of bottle tops and wrote ideas of what we could do around it. 


In RE we started by thinking about where Jesus would go if he came to visit Northaw. The children had some fantastic ideas such as a church to see the bibles, school to teach children and the shops to buy food for people who were hungry. We have then learnt about the Easter story. Children ordered the story and we played pass the parcel full of objects that represent parts of the Easter story. 

Under the Sea - Science

We have really enjoyed our topic of “under the sea” – the best part was when Miss Barker brought in a fish and we got to touch and hold it. We learnt about the parts of the fish and why they are important. Miss Barker then cut open the fish so we could see the inside!

Active hour

On Friday 20th November we had HWSPP visit us. The children took part in Archery and Boccia. Both new activities which they hadn’t tried before. They had a great session. See the photos below to see who got balls eye! 

Pirate Day

We had an amazing pirate day! The children and staff came to school dressed as pirates and took part in lots of pirate activities.

For geography the children learnt how to read a map of the school to be able to find the treasure (gold coins of course!).

In art, children created a treasure map using tea bags and used their geographical knowledge to draw a compass on it.

We also did some pirate dancing and a catwalk to show off our costumes. We had such a fun day! Here are some photos.
