Ascension Thursday, also known as the Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, is a Holy Day of Obligation for Catholics around the world. On this day, the faithful celebrate Christ’s ascension into Heaven on the 40th day after Resurrection.
Year 4 have been very busy in Computing this half term making these eBooks all about Ancient Egypt. Click the link below to take you to their class library …
In Year 1 we have been planting sunflower seeds for our Science holiday homework.
We know we need to water our seeds and put them in a warm place to help them to grow.
After the holiday we will measure our plants and make a graph to show how our seeds have grown.
During our Art and History lessons we have been learning about a famous artist called Laurence Stephen Lowry. He was born in Stretford and went to live in Salford with his parents.
We went to The Lowry at Salford Quays; Artist Pauline showed us, and spoke to us about some of Lowry’s famous portraits. We tried to copy Lowry’s artwork.
In the art studio we learnt to draw pictures showing different emotions.
Year 1 had a wonderful time. Noah said ‘This was my best school day ever!‘
In PE with Coach Pete, we were working on our throwing and catching skills. Then we got into 4 teams and played against each other using the skills we had just learned.
We completed our Science topic on Materials this week by carrying out a group investigation.
We wanted to find out what type of material would be best to make an umbrella for Ted. We tested the materials and found out that most of the materials absorbed water. Only the plastic repelled the water.
In conclusion the best material for Ted’s umbrella is plastic.
Year 2 have created mini greenhouses! We put a wet paper towel into a zip lock bag and carefully placed bean seeds on top, before sealing the bag tightly shut. We lay them flat on the window sill.
By the end of the day we could see the moisture inside the bag. There were little drops of water on the top on the bag.
Within just 3 days, the bean shell had cracked open and by the 8th day we could see white roots and a green shoot appearing.
Rafah’s Bean plant has grown really quickly and already has a long stem and a green leaf ready to appear. How exciting!
We are looking forward to seeing how our bean shoots grow by the end of the week.
