Junior Orchestra Assembly

Key Stage 2 were treated to an exciting assembly all about Congleton Junior Orchestra. We all took part in a game of Name that tune’ where we all were able to say what song each was and the instructors were ever so impressed by our musical knowledge.

There will be an open day from 10-12pm at Trinity Church on June 16th, where there will be games and opportunities to try out the different instruments.

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!)

 

A visitor in Year!

To end our science week, Mr Challiner came to talk to us all about mining. It was fascinating to learn about how diamonds were mined and how mines work.

We were also given the opportunity to ask questions about a miners work and about how rocks were formed.

Mr Challiner then set us a challenge to draw one of machines that was used in the mines of the Queens crown which houses the famous Cullinan Diamond.

Runners up were Zack Coates and Olivia Holt.

 

The winners were Joe Dale and Lucas Archer.

Thank you very much Mr Challiner for taking the time to come and talk to us.

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!

 

Super Science Week

Wow, what a way to start Science Week! Mrs Abraham introduced STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) through some exciting investigations. We found out all about the fabulous activities and challenges that will be taking place over the week. We will be having a Celebration Assembly on Friday at 2.30pm where members of each class will explain what they have taken part in and learnt over the week. Please come and join us in assembly on Friday, to find out what we have all done!

Volcanic Eruptions in Year 3

This afternoon we took our volcanoes outside and simulated an eruption.

First of all we tried 2 tbs or bicarbonate of soda, 1 tbs of washing up liquid and 30ml of vinegar. This wasn’t very successful and Miss Booth’s Volcano didn’t erupt. We then thought about how we could cause a bigger reaction and came up with out own quantities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some of the results.

 

We then had a go using coke and mentos. The reaction wasn’t quite as fierce as we had expected. I wonder what we could have differently?

 

 

Fantastic Flowers.

Flowers are not just pretty petals and pollen. This afternoon we dissected our flower and found out that they are actually made up of lots of different parts.

Once we had dissected the flower, we labelled the different parts.

Next we are going to find out what each part does.

Busy Bees

This afternoon we have been busy making Bee pencil toppers to sell during our enterprise week. We will be selling them all week as part of our enterprise for £1

1.

All the money raised will be donated to the Manchester appeal.

Fabulous Friction

This week in class three we investigated how the type of surface affected the amount of friction created on a toy car

We found that the bubble wrap created the most friction and the tin foil the least. So, the rougher the surface, the greater the friction.
