Seed bombs

Isabella attended a festival last weekend with her family and made some seed bombs. She brought these into school for the children to sprinkle around the school grounds,

We can’t wait to see how they turn out. Thank you Isabella for bringing them in to share with your friends.

Sound proofing

On Monday Class 4 took advantage of the lovely weather and completed their science investigation outside. The children worked in groups to investigate which material would be best to use to soundproof a room. We found out that the best material that blocked out the most sound was egg boxes made from cardboard followed by bubble wrap.

Town sports

We are extremely proud of all of our pupils who took part in town sports on Wednesday at Congleton High School. Here is a photo of Theo Cooper with his silver medal that he won for skipping. Well done Theo!


On Monday afternoon as part of our science we made rockets and looked at the science behind how rockets get to space. The children mixed ENO powder with water, which is a fizzy powder. When we added the powder to water, it produces a harmless gas caked carbon dioxide. This is what makes fizzy drinks fizz. The gas builds up inside the rocket, building up pressure, until eventually the rocket is blasted off.

We had lots of fun! Some rockets went really high.

Astbury mere

This morning we have had our first session at astbury mere, it has been so much fun. We learnt how to build a raft, tie knots correctly and had fun trying them out in the water, lots of us ended up falling in the water.

DT/science project

This week Year 4 have been extremely busy working on a project. The children have learnt all about electricity during their science lessons and have put this to good use this week when being faced with a scenario.

The scenario was that – Elena is fed up with her baby brother coming into her bedroom and messing it all up, she wants to put an alarm on the door so she knows when he tries to go in. Can you design a battery-powered circuit for Elena to help her solve the problem?

The children worked hard to research how they could do this, spent time planning how they were going to do their design and finally made their alarm systems. Every group managed to make an alarm that sounded when a door was opened.

The children evaluated their designs and said what was good about them and how they could improve them next time, well done Class 4.
