Working in a lab- dilemmas and decisions

We pretended to be factory workers and we wore tags. We worked in a top secret lab, we weren’t allowed to tell anyone. The lab was trying to make a medicine for the people in the imaginary place called Redhouses. The medicine wasn’t working. The fisherman thought we were killing their fish because of pollution….

Special snow sledging and Burn’s Night

On Tuesday we went sledging, which made Willow feel happy. It was exciting because it’s so unusual. We found a really good hill. We had some airtime when we flew through the air.  We took the sledge further and further up the hill which is how we got faster-by the end we were very fast….

Good classmates, line drawings and owls

At Christmas I (Hugh) enjoyed my ‘velocotrax’. It’s a toy – you can drive it off small cliffs and race it in fields. It has caterpillar tracks and I think that’s why it works in fields. My (Keighla’s) favourite part of the holiday was going to Hugh’s house to see his tortoise and I also enjoyed…

Christmas countdown

We’ve had a busy week leading up to our school play and party. We have been doing lots of Christmas-y things. We used what we have learned about money to pretend to choose some Christmas presents and make a Christmas meal to a budget. Yesterday we did the painting for the stable for Tara and…

Feeling festive

We were doing an experiment with ice and it was basically where Julie and Mr Norman made some coloured ice cubes (orange, blue and green) and we put the blue one in cold water and the green one in medium water and the orange/yellow one went in the hot water. They all dissolved apart from…

Art attack- beach art and experiments

We went down to the beach to do some art. It was cold but fun. I enjoyed playing by the rock pool. My design was a picture of me and my cat playing a game which my cat won. It was hard using sand rather than paint or paper because it kept on rubbing out….

Making boats

This week we have been making boats as part of our water project. We tested the boats that we made and found that some floated and some sank. When we put them in and they were paper, they floated! We also floated paperclips: when I put it in carefully and slowly, it stayed up. If…

Lights, libraries and lanterns

Last Monday we were having a new library opening after school and I (Hugh) got to cut the ribbon. I got to open the library! The best thing of the new library is that all the books are in the perfect place. I helped Daniel with the £1 books on his stall. Daniel and Willow…

Nethybridge 2018

Nethybridge was really great this year. We loved the dry-slope skiing. Some of us didn’t fall over, and we even learnt how to use the button lift. Which was much easier on our legs. My favourite part was the zip wire. I went down quite a few times, and I didn’t get scared (Logan). The…

Haunted Muck

We had a really good time over the holidays and we were looking forward to seeing the changes in the school. The library has changed: there are shelves and things to show us where the books are. The library is now in the classroom and this makes me (Keighla) want to go in more. The…
