Science Day Continued

On Science day we all got a lab coat and decorated these with the St Georges's science principles and scientific vocabulary related to our units of work. 

Mr Tabernor, the science teacher from Alder Community High School, did a science assembly for us. We watched him alter the colour of liquids using chemistry, learnt thow long our intenstines were, saw Miss Mee's sit on a bed of nails and witnessed Mr Burgess get wet when a flame was put under a water balloon. All this was explained by Mr Tabernor using science. It was fascinating!

Year 6 were interested in careers linked to science and had a visit from a radiographer. We learnt about this interesting career and have been inspired by her talk.

In our classroom we looked at one type of scientific inquiry - observations over time. We studied silly soap and put m&m's in water and noticed any changes that took place.

Another type of scientific inquiry we looked at was pattern seeking. We measured our hand spans and tested how many sweets each person's hand could grab. We then looked for a pattern in the results.

Visit from Mrs Rigby

Mrs Rigby came to visit to tell us all about what it was like to live during the Second World War. Mrs Rigby was born in 1920 so is 100 years old! She was 19 when the war broke out. Her job during the war was a 'plotter' and she was in the WAAF. We asked her lots of questions and she answered them in great of detail telling us what it was like during the blitz, what happened when the air raid sirens went off, how her fiance was sent to fight in the war and how she felt about all the events that happened. She also told us about rations and how the food was given out. It was a fascinating story and an amazing opportunity to find out about history from a real-life source. Angela, her daughter, also came to help with pictures and share what she has learnt about the war from her mum and dad. We had a great morning of history learning to add to our WW2 Learning Challenge.

World Book Day

We enjoyed reading our buddies their favorite stories.

We played 'book charades.' We acted out books and the rest of the class had to guess what the titles were.

We explored author websites to investigate how our favourite authors thought of their ideas and to explore the book titles and characters.
