To kick off Anti bullying week we have worn odd socks! Some children confessed to wearing odd socks most days!!!
Kai explained to the class how they celebrate Diwali, which is the festival of light, at home. For Diwali, Indians light candles, light fireworks and eat sugary sweets! The story of Diwali started when Sita was kidnapped by an eight headed demon who disguised himself as an old man. Then her husband Rama met the monkey god Hanuman and killed the demon by shooting him in the heart with a sacred arrow. To celebrate Diwali, Mrs Barnes baked us some scrumptious butterfly cakes.
Today we paid our respects whilst observing a 2 minutes silence. Angelica also read a poem she had written
Today in Year 6 we have learnt all about blood. We started with plasma, which is yellow in colour. When we added the red blood cells it turned the blood red. These carry oxygen, nutrients and water around the body. Next we added white blood cells, whose job it is to take the waste away. Finally, we put platelets in the mixture. These clot our blood and heal wounds.
