The whole school enjoyed watching a performance of The Light Fantastic by the Kinetic Theatre Company this morning. In the story, all the colour had been stolen from the world and the children had to help Roy Gee find out who had done it by taking part in some science experiments like using trays for mirrors, ice-cubes for prisms and saucers for lenses. They even had to had to explore the structure of our solar system to help solve the problem!
Today's challenge for year 3 was to make a food for an Celtic army. They needed something that would give the men energy and be something that could feed lots of people. The class decided that a meat and vegetable soup would be perfect. Each group had to think about the different ingredients they were including in their soup.
Some groups designed their soup using chicken stock and cubed beef. Whilst other groups descided they would prefer beef stock with mince meat.
All the class had to peel, chop and slice a range of vegetables to add to the soup. Some of the children helped fry the meat and vegetables. At the end of the lesson, they tasted their food and evaluated their recipes.
The whole school has had an exciting time developing their scientific investigation skills during a special 'Inspire Science' week:
The 'mad scientist' Zainy Zee gave an exciting, interactive science assembly to everyone and the infants were also visited by Zoo Lab who brought along some excotic animals for the children to handle.
Year 3 enjoyed learning how to apply different effects to text using the Pages app this afternoon.
Two 'Mad Science' teachers visited school on Monday to first give Years 1-6 an assembly about different types of energy (including static, electrical and combustion)...
...after that, they then give each of the classes a special science lesson:
Representatives from the Middleton Rotary Club gave a special assembly this morning to award the school and our Rota Kids children with a certificate to recognise our work for them this year.
They praised our fantastic effort in donating over 100 teddies to Manchester Children’s Hospice and Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
The KS2 Sing Along children performed a variety of: dance routines, songs and gymnastic movements this morning to both the whole school and a large audience of parents.
Following our year of music tuition with Joanne Astley, KS1 and KS2 held special performances this afternoon to celebrate 'Music from around the world', including songs from: Austria, India and Jamaica.
