Year 5 pupils got their hands on rare samples of moon rocks and meteorites this week during Science lessons that truly were out of this world.
The year 5 topic, Our Precious Planet, covers parts of the curriculum such as classifying, observing and testing, which included the unique opportunity to actually touch pieces of space rock not of this earth. The children were allowed to handle genuine meteorites. The lunar samples were collected in the late 1960s and early 1970s during some of NASA's first manned space missions to the moon. During these missions, a staggering 382kg of material was brought back to Earth-mostly for use by scientists, but small quantities gave been used for educational purposes.
Year 3 enjoyed their trip to Dover Castle! We had fun exploring the underground tunnels through our expertly led guided tours and learnt so much about the 3.8 miles of tunnel, some of which was dug out by hand! In addition to this, we also thoroughly enjoyed exploring the Great Tower and some of us even sat on the King's Throne!
What a delightful preview evening! We enjoyed every moment; the children's gleeful excitement and rightful pride in the outcome of their participation; the beaming proud parents; the curators, staff and trustees of the amazing Seaside Museum; the surprise conjuror (Lake's father!) and last but certainly not least, the film makers - Phil and his team of wondrous folk! Truly we felt very privileged to be there.
It was a spectacular day for Year 4, dressing up in some incredible costumes from over the 20th Century. Everyone enjoyed their day and the Year 4 children brought their absolute best to the dance, which WOW'ed the Year 3s!
On Friday 5th April, the Year 6 AAA group invited their parents/carers/family members to come in and sample their delicious Easter inspired cakes and biscuits as well as displaying their creative art work. For the last two terms, Mrs Hager and Mrs Waller have worked with the children in designing and creating a range of artwork and foods such as pizzas, decorated biscuits and fairy cakes. It was great to see how much the children enjoyed creating their final products and just as lovely to see how much the adults enjoyed sampling them! Thank you to all adults who attended.
