Making our own switches.

In Science club this week to link with ‘Switch off fortnight’ the children were given a challenge. The challenge was to make a circuit and then create a switch using household materials. The children used tinfoil, paper clips, split pins and card to do this. They all did a fantastic job and had fun too!

Amazing Class 2!

Today Class 2 performed their assembly and they were truly amazing! Mrs Radcliffe and Mrs Abraham were so proud of what they have accomplished this year and the children were able to celebrate all they have achieved. Well done Class 2, you rock!!!

   

 

3D fun!

Yesterday we became engineers, creating World Cup badges for the England football team. We used special pens to  make our badges 3D. Which one do you think England would prefer?

SPORT RELIEF: Staff vs Pupils Charity Football Match

Last Friday, we held our Staff vs Pupils football matches, all in aid of Sport Relief. We had a fantastic turnout of players (both pupils and staff) and amazing support from pupil and parents.

We managed to raise just over £420!! Thank you so much for everyone’s support, it was a very enjoyable evening for staff and pupils alike (as well as lots of sore teachers over the weekend!)

 

Our Lighthouse Keeper’s Breakfast!

Class 2 had a great time sharing a wonderful breakfast (that they had made) with their parents this morning. Over the week, they have been busy making their very own lighthouses, baking breakfast muffins, flapjacks and scones and making lunch boxes, all linked to our text ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’. They loved sharing their great achievements with all the Mums, Dads and Grandparents.

 

Another great STEM Club

This week, the children in STEM Club became engineers! They had a challenge to see how tall they could make a structure using only dried spaghetti and marshmallows. We had great fun working out how to make our structures stronger and decided that Mia’s structure was the best!

 

Thumbs up Thursday

Class 2 had a fantastic time working with their Mums, Dads, brothers and Nans on their first CREST Award challenge this morning. They were testing materials to see which one kept the mouse warm! We had a fantastic time. Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came in and joinedthe fun!

 

A cracking start to our CREST Awards

Class 2 have started their quest to achieving their very own CREST Award. They have completed 4 challenges today and have 4 to go! Today’s challenges included making bubbles of different sizes, shape and colour, washing dirty laundry and fixing a broken umbrella using waterproof material. They can’t wait to see what Cosmic, Gem and Aunt Stella want them to investigate next!

Class 2 at MOSI

Class 2 have had a great time at The Museum of Science and Industry today. We took part in lots of Science investigations, learnt about robots and discovered aircraft, old and new! We were SUPER excited when we saw a Red Arrow, as we have been learning about these in our topic!! Well done boys and girls, you made Marlfields very proud!!
