Slime for the camera!

Year 4 had fun at Harton Technology College as we continued our adventures in science following British Science Week.

To start their Solids, Liquids and Gases topic off with a bang, Year 4 were shown how to use the Bunsen burners to rapidly boil and evaporate liquids before creating slime from PVA glue and borax.

As you can see, the children were amazed to be working in a real science lab and they really showed off their scientific thinking skills. Well done, Year 4!

PS – Year 5 will be heading up there soon to see some forces in action…

Show Racism The Red Card

Year 5 and Year 6 recently took part in workshops to learn about racism.  It was a great day which gave us lots to think about.  One of the highlights of the day was receiving some football training from an ex professional footballer.

Year 4 at The Word

Year 4 were invited to take part in a colourful parade to celebrate the opening of The Word.  Year 4 worked with our friends from Dry Water, Paula and Francis, to design banners using the children’s favourite words.  The banners will be displayed in The Word for the next two weeks.  Please go and share the wonderful work Year 4 have done.image (3) image (1) image (2) image (5) image (4) image (6)
