Hello from Miss Mewton and Miss Roworth!

9th March 2020
This week it was Science week! Some of our budding scientists from year 5 made a visit to Poltair School to investigate the amount of plastic pollution at our local beaches. Using microscopes, the children took samples of sea water from different beaches and recorded how many microplastics were in the tiny samples! They really enjoyed getting a taste of what secondary school Science is like.
On Friday, we carried out investigations to test out different properties of materials including magnetism, hardness, flexibility, permeability and transparency. We tested materials like plastic, rubber, metal, and even Miss Mewton's wooden coasters!

This week we started our new topic - the Mayans! The children looked at similarities and differences between the Mayans and the Egyptians. Interestingly, there were quite a few! In English we are looking at a Mayan folktale called 'The Chocolate Tree'. We used this to help plan and write our own folktales. 
On Thursday, it was World Book Day! As a class, we read a book about deforestation of the Amazon rainforest called The Great Kapok Tree. Once we had read it, we had a debate on the pros and cons of deforestation. The children were great at this and had lots of strong opinions! We then talked about all the different species of animals that live in the rainforest and created some artwork of them. They are amazing!
All the children made a really brilliant effort with their costumes and everyone looked great!

This first week back started with some of our year 5/6 children visiting London. They visited the Natural History museum, the Houses of Parliament, went on the London Eye and even went to a Hindu Mandir! All of the children seemed to thoroughly enjoy their trip, and wrote wonderful recounts of their experience when they arrived back at school. 
Just a Reminder:
Please make sure your child has a PE Kit in school every day...this consists of black shorts, white t. shirt and plimsolls or trainers, thank you.
