HOMEWORK UPDATE - Homework is given out on a Friday and needs returning / completing on the following Thursday e.g. Friday 7th - Thursday 13th, Friday 14th - Thursday 20th.
Remember the Kingfisher Motto - TRY YOUR BEST AND FORGET THE REST.
All children have a new reading book and reading record. There are also Ebooks on their Active Learn account to start reading too! Happy reading and let's try to get a golden ticket at the end of the week.
All we ask, is for children do their very best, and forget the rest. Every little helps to reinforce the skills they are learning at school - including reading. READ FOR MEANING - READ FOR FUN!
ALL HOMEWORK NEEDS TO BE COMPLETED AND HANDED IN ON A THURSDAY MORNING. NEW HOMEWORK WILL BE ISSUED ON FRIDAYS.
What melting point does gallium (Ga) have?
Skills used: predictions, measuring water in ml, teamwork, recording results, close observational skills, and finding the answer - writing up a conclusion.
Awe and wonder - how do you know the 1g of gallium has changed state?
Here are some of the responses:
'It wobbles when I shake it!'
'It flows around the bottom of the test-tube.'
Literacy : Revolting Rhymes and Dirty Beasts; Alfie's Story and The Ugly Five.
Children have read a range of animal stories to inspire their own stories.
We love our motto: read for meaning; read for fun!
For most people, the idea of finding old human poo is disgusting; and the idea of cutting it up and looking at it through a microscope is even worse! But this is exactly what some archaeologists do to help us understand what people ate in the past, and how they prepared their food.
Poo from the Past - they loved making and adding the dietary evidence to their Aztec poo, add popping corn or maize, pumpkin seeds, and the skin and seeds from plants like tomatoes, chillies and peppers – these are parts of the foods that Aztec people ate, which might not have been fully digested.
The Fire, Water, Air and Earth Pavilions enthused, excited and ignited the Stanley children's interest, and for some, love for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The practical workshops were amazing; from extracting DNA from a kiwi, looking at chemical reactions to observing forces that impact on a hot air balloon, the children were engaged and active.
Thank you to all the parent helpers that supported this school trip.
