We moved on from our topic on sound to electricity. How could we light up a bulb? What do we need? Great fun was had trying to sort out our circuits using cells, wires, buzzers, bulbs and motors. Very excited faces when a working circuit was made.
This week is anti-bullying week. Elm Class have been thinking about the difference in meaning between being rude, mean and bullying. They discussed the vocabulary associated with these; designed posters, and then created their own role-plays to portray these in action! They also discussed cyber-bullying and how this might happen. They thought of the many varied ways people communicate through devices at home – quite a list! They then designed their own comic strips to show what someone should do if it was happening to them. Always tell an adult!
We had lots of fun this afternoon with our sports coaches. Today’s session was fencing. We started by learning the position and how to move. Then on to getting the vests and helmets on. In groups of 3, 2 ‘fought’ and 1 refereed – a very serious job!
In the next 2 Fridays, we’ll do Archery and Lacrosse.
