Science Week 11.03.20
Trendle Class have had a fun-filled Science Week! Our focus for Science Week this year was how we could use the 3 Rs - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle to help the environment. Each afternoon, every class has had the opportunity to take part in a different activity on the 3 Rs.
Mrs Cain has lead Forest School sessions where we have made bird feeders to help look after our birds through using recycled materials! We have used pine cones to 'tree-cycle!!' by making natural bird feeders using lard and bird seed. Additionally, we have reused toilet roll tubes by covering them in peanut butter and rolling them in bird seed!
Mr Mitchem lead a litter pick on Wednesday afternoon where the children learnt the importance of looking after our environment through managing our rubbish responsibly. Miss Stephens taught Trendle Class about reusing old magazines and cereal boxes to make beautiful decoupage decorations.
We had a whole school assembly on Tuesday about the 3 Rs lead by Kirsten from Dorset Council. She gave us some great advice on how we can Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! Kirsten is returning next week to talk to us again about composting!
Trendle Class have carried out a science experiment in their English lesson - they have made cornflour slime! The children loved the slime and enjoyed exploring it! We have some great writing about it during Wednesday's English Lesson!
In Maths this week we have been learning how to count in 10s and how to multiply by 10. Can you practise your 10 times tables at home?
A positive, purposeful and enthusiastic atmosphere
