SCIENCE DAY - 20th March 2013
The whole school enjoyed a wonderful day; thanks to Knutsford Sci-Bar. There were a wide variety of exciting activities taking place throughout the day and the hall was converted into a science fair with a planetarium, live owls, paper aeroplanes, rocket to the moon, optical illusions and much more!
The children were involved in a wide range of activities including: space talks, launching big rockets across the field, mini rockets powered by alka-seltzer, investigating magnetism and discovering the complexities of circulation & respiration by the use of balloons! The Spinney was put to good use investigating mini-beasts with the guidance of staff from Lower Moss Wood.
Our youngest children discovered the art of bread making with the support of Roberts Bakery, investigated the five senses and had a fascinating insight into reptiles.
They held frogs, lizards and snakes; kindly brought from the Manchester Museum by Dr Andrew Gray.
A huge thank you to Dave Thompson for co-ordinating the successful day.
As one Year 3 child was heard to say 'it was the best day ever!'
Manchester Airport Farming Visit
On the 6th March Years 1, 2 and 3 were lucky enough to experience four different activities organised by various local farmers. The activities taught the children about the work that goes into making a healthy breakfast. Every pupil got to milk a cow, plant a seed, hold a chick and make some butter. Manchester Airport kindly funded this opportunity.
What's My Line?
Year 5 enjoyed the opportunity to find out about lots of different jobs by taking part in the game show 'What's My Line?' They had onlyten questions to ask each person to guess what their job is.
We met some interesting people with some fascinating jobs!
Wayne and some pupils showed the school some of the games and skills that will be played and learnt at Fencing Club, which starts next half term. Reply slips and money need to be returned to Mr Wilde.
Cooking in Year 3
As part of our topic all about the Romans we had Miss Brown visit our class and demonstrate how to prepare and cook lamb stew. We had lots of parents in to help us do the cooking. For more pictures please visit our class page and find the ‘Roman Cooking’ slide show link on the left hand side of our home page.
The Spinney has been cleared of all the overgrown ivy and roots; wood chip has been used to create the pathways. Watch this space for developments of staging and story areas!
Mrs Risley and Mrs Durban's class - Judaism
In R.E. Mrs Risley and Mrs Durban's class have been finding out about Judaism by learning about Shabbat. They have made Challah bread and shared a Shabbat meal.
The whole school has been talking about things we can do at school to ensure we are happy and safe. We have talked about the things we can do to ensure everyone feels good about themselves and what we should do if we see other people who are upset or hurt. All of the children and staff signed our Anti-bullying wall. Please click on the link in the left hand corner of the screen to see some pictures of our day.
This week Teacher Peter and Teacher Rose have been visiting our school . We have found out lots about Larmudiac Primary School and what school life is like in Kenya. Our visitors have watched lessons throughout school and have taught Year 5 a Kenyan song and a dance.
They have enjoyed taking part in all kinds of fun activities, including visiting Lord Egerton's House at the weekend.
'The World's Biggest Coffee Morning'
Thank you to everyone who attended the coffee morning on Friday 28th September. The morning was a huge success and we raised £225 to send to Macmillan. The Year 6 children thoroughly enjoyed baking for the event and for those of you who joined us I am sure that you will agree that they did an excellent job serving all the delicious cakes and biscuits.
Den building was very successful!
Today the children and adults have been doing team building games and learning how to build dens.
