On Wednesday night the Year 5/6 cross country team ran brilliantly around the Eaton Bank course. Well done to all of you!
Thank you for a lovely year and all of the very nice presents that I received. I look forward to having you all again for your last year in primary school. Hope that you all have a lovely summer remember to try to have time to read as much as you can and keep learning. See you in September! Miss Sowry 🙂
for each story .We really enjoyed it when Beth lets us dress up and act out scenes from the stories we learnt. It was a really fun way to learn about the bible and we can’t wait until next time!

Today for Class 4’s enterprise it was Class 5’s chance to come and take part in an experiment. The experiment was to see if they could make the worms wriggle and they succeeded.
First they put the worms into bicarbonate of soda and water for 30 minutes.
Next they got a glass half full of vinegar and placed the worms inside.
The mixture started to fizz and sure enough the worms began wriggling.
This was so much fun and we found out that mixing bicarbonate of soda with acidic vinegar creates bubbles of carbon dioxide gas. As the soda solution has soaked into the gummy worm, tiny bubbles form on its surface when you drop it into vinegar. The bubbles grow big enough to lift the worm.
We investigated air resistance by designing parachutes. We then tested our different parachutes on the school playground and kept it a fair test by using the same person to drop the parachute each time. We concluded that the size and shape affects the speed of the parachute and the more or less air resistance that it has. IMG_1085
Year 5 and 6 had an amazing time performing at this year’s Young Voices concert at the MEN arena in Manchester. They sung their hearts out with over 8,000 other children. Thank you to Millie’s mum and nan for helping, as well as all the teachers.
