The children in the Egypt bubble have been talking a lot about our friends who are not back at school yet because we miss them very much, we decided to send them a hug in the post. We looked at photographs of all our friends and chose who to send our hug to and painted ourselves with big long arms that can wrap around our friend to give them a hug.
Here's an idea that's really taken off - The year six children designed and tested paper aeroplanes with some impressive results. They did repeat recordings of how far they flew and calculated the average. We talked about which ones flew effectively and why. If you are at home why not give it a go. Send in your photos and videos of your results.
After their trip to the sea life centre, year 3 found something fishy in their classroom. They are scientifically observing and categorising sea creatures for their land sea and sky topic.
Our mini cadets became crime scene investigators for the day with Ali, a real Police CSI and forensic archeologist. They tested for finger prints and were shown how the experts investigate and solve crimes. Thanks to Blackpool Police for introducing us to this exciting subject.

Would you 'edam' and eve it!! Year 4 discovered scrumptious cheese and delicious ice cream at the Dewlay and Wallings factories. They have been learning about changes in state and how we can change liquids into solids. Earlier in the week they had a ‘grate’ time making their own cheese and they saw the procedure for real in a fascinating tour of the Dewlay factory. Later they visited the Wallings factory where they saw the processes and materials involved in making ice cream. After a scientific taste testing, their cheesy grins says it all - we love Walling's ice-cream and Dewlay's cheese!
Year 4 made their own cheese in science. We heated milk and added acid (lemon juice). The milk coagulated into cheese. We will learn even more about the process on our trip to the cheese factory on Thursday.
