This week the whole school have been taking part in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) week. Year 3 have been dissolving seashells using acid, Year 2 have been investigating and making rockets and Year 6 have been dissecting hearts! There are lots more activities to come.. watch this space!
We have worked hard this term learning about plants and chicks. We also learned the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.
We then performed all that we loved learning about in an assembly.
Year 1 did fantastically in their assembly and all your teachers are proud of the hard work you’ve done.
Year 2 have worked really hard this term and showcased their learning through a fantastic assembly in the form of a play; they performed The Jungle Book. Whilst also seeing some great costumes, dances and heard some fantastic singing, they also gave us facts on the various animals and wildlife you might find in a jungle.
The eggs have arrived in the year 1 classrooms and we look forward to seeing some chicks in the next couple of days. We will keep you updated!
We have been planting and watching lots of plants grow this topic. We all planted peas and are enjoying watching them grow each week. We also did an experiment and looked at how cress grows both on the windowsill and in a dark cupboard. We found out that plants need sunlight and won’t grow as well in the dark. In Liskeard, we have also planted some flowers outside of our classroom door.
Each year group was given a different aspect of Rodbourne’s history to research. The children then shared their findings in an assembly to the Rodbourne Community History group today.
