We were very lucky when some students came from Sunderland University to teach us all about science! We took part in 5 different activities: a snowstorm in a bottle; making snow from nappies; making snowmen fly with static; creating musical instruments from paper plates, straws and cups; and protecting an egg to stop it from cracking. We loved it, it was great fun and we learned lots.
Reception, Nursery and Year 1 and 2 were very lucky, and some birds of prey came to visit our school! There was a Barn Owl, a Harris Hawk and a Falcon. We learned lots of bird facts, and were lucky enough to see the hawk fly!
Miss Jordan’s and Miss Dooley’s Literacy groups visited the Word, to listen to stories. Since it is October, we listened to spooky stories, to do with Halloween! We drew boggarts, from one of the stories. We also learned a bit of Spanish from one spooky story called Los Gatos Black. We learned a bit about the Day of the Dead, and made skeleton masks to celebrate this!
We had a great time, and are looking forward to the next visit.
Miss Dooley’s and Miss Jordan’s Literacy groups made potions this week, from some spooky instructions. We had to use bone dust, pond water, sea serpent eyeballs, pixie dust, black cobweb, dragon’s blood and bug slime to make a potion to make you smile. We loved it, and then we wrote some amazing instructions of our own for how to make this potion.
Miss Dooley’s Literacy group visited the OpenZone to take part in the Makey Project. We had to make Play-Doh sea creatures that lit up, and Scribble Monsters that were powered by motors. We had a fantastic time!
Year 1 had such fun following a recipe to create their own Gingerbread Man. They didn’t last very long…but apparently they were delicious!!
Thank you to all the parents who attended our Autumn craft morning in KS1. We all really enjoyed ourselves.
Thank you to all the parents who came to join our KS1 craft session. We all had lots of fun!
Last week we had a very exciting time of nominations, speeches and voting at the ballot boxes. The results came in and all of our new school councillors were very popular choices. They are looking forward to working together and representing the views of all the children at Marine Park Primary School.
