This afternoon Class 8 had great fun exploding their volcanoes!!! We had to find substances that created a chemical reaction. We experimented first to practise. We discovered that if we mixed an alkaline substance with an acid it created a reaction. Therefore to explode our volcanoes we mixed vinegar (acid) and baking soda (alkaline).
Take a look at the pictures below to see how we got on!
A massive thank you to Ava Chadwick who brought us some ‘personalised’ Halloween Treats! She designed and printed all the wrappers herself! How wonderful! Thank you!
Enjoy Halloween everyone 🎃🎃🎃
During the first two weeks of term, Key Stage 2 learnt all about different Yorkshire people in a bid to find out who was Yorkshire’s greatest! Class 8 studied Charlotte Bronte. We learnt how she came from a poor background and didn’t receive a private or even full education. Despite all this she went on to publish one of the most read and successful books of all time - Jane Eyre!
Class 8 presented the facts to Mr Harris and the governors and they decided that Charlotte Bronte was the Greatest Yorkshire person of all time!!! The children were clear, precise and persuasive in their delivery and really deserved the accolade of winners! Well done class 8!
A warm welcome to Class 8, Year 3/4 from Mrs Brearley and Mrs Key. In Class 8 we make learning fun and exciting, while expecting high standards at the same time.
This term we have lots in store. We will be kicking off by learning about the Greatest Yorkshire lady - Charlotte Bronte!
Our overall topic this term is Active Planet and we will be visiting Magna as an entry point to our studies.
Class 8 PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday so please ensure that your children have their PE kits on these days.
Children will receive new spellings every Tuesday and will have weekly homework to complete.
We look forward to our first term together!
