Linked to their Spring term essential question ’Where will your imagination take you?’ Year 1 and Year 2 have been busy drawing their own chocolate designs ready to make. Learning how to prepare the area and what was needed and how to melt and mould the chocolate they made some mouth-watering delights which were enjoyed whilst watching ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.’
Linked to their Spring term essential question ’What’s out there?’ Reception children experienced a pop up planetarium dome based around Space. They took part in a mesmerising learning journey, looking at the planets, watching a film of the first moon landing and travelling on a rocket ship to the moon!
On Monday 18th December Beech Primary Years 3 to 6 and Luck Lane Primary Year 3, took part in their first annual carol service, at St Mark’s Church, Longwood.
Beautiful voices were heard, and the spirit of Christmas was all around!
Thank you to all the parents who attended our first ‘Open Morning’ this week. If you didn’t make it we are open again on Wednesday 29th November please arrive 9am or 10am.
We were delighted to see children and their parents/carers all enjoying various activities in class. These activities included making paper maché using balloons.
Thank you to all who donated to Children in Need by buying keyrings, badges and baking buns!
Each class chose their own theme for the day, with some wearing pyjamas and some wearing spotty clothes.
We will let you know next week how much we raised
This week in the Reception classes children have been conducting science experiments related to colour.
They carried out a ‘Skittle Rainbow’ experiment, ‘A Magic Milk’ experiment and a ‘Fireworks in a jar’ experiment. We looked and talked about how the materials change when water or food colouring is added.
Inayah said, “Look all the colour is moving away!” Luca said, “Wow look at the fireworks!” Zakirah said, “I’m making a rainbow.”
Happy #HotChocFri! Well done to Aaminah for going over and above keeping the classroom neat and tidy making sure it is ALWAYS ready for learning.
We were delighted to welcome Pennine Sports Trial Bikes Scheme into school today.
Children in the reception classes learnt how to balance on these bikes, the importance of using helmets and enjoyed discussing how to keep themselves safe.
Year 1 and Year 2 have been making their own pizzas, using their favourite toppings!
Year 1 have received a letter from Jack (from Jack and the Beanstalk) asking them to look after the golden eggs, magic beans and coins he found in the Giant’s castle.
Year 1 were very keen to accept this challenge and posted letters that they had wrote back to Jack!
