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.
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.
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?
This Year, we have been learning about our digital footprint. We though about which internet sites we had used over the past few days.
We then thought about how to keep ourselves safe when using thee internet. We created our top ten top tips!
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.
