In Science, the Year 3 and 4 children investigated the digestive system by recreating it using everyday items. They had lots of fun investigating what happens to food when we eat.

*Bananas and crackers represented the food.

*The plastic bag represented the stomach.

*The orange juice represented the stomach acid and the water represented the saliva.

*The tights represented the small intestine and the tray represented the body.

*The cup represented the rectum

Each week, the children enjoy bringing in items to share with the class in ‘Time to Shine’. This is normally linked to the topic or a chance to share an achievement outside of school. We love hearing each other’s news and always have interesting questions to ask.

Forest School - On Monday 20th November, Kingfisher Class enjoyed a fun afternoon taking part in forest school, led by Yvonne Bell. They completed a range of activities, linked to the science topic of habitats, which included: making clay tree creatures; making wands out of elder wood; creating bug houses; and using willow to create woven habitats for mini-beasts. The children worked brilliantly as a class and in smaller groups, developing their skills of communication, team work and perseverance. The whole afternoon was rounded off by toasting marshmallows on the fire. Delicious! Thank you to Mrs Brown for helping us for the afternoon and to Yvonne for leading a great session​
