Children in Y3 (both at home and in school) have been investigating the effect that different liquids have on our teeth. To do this, we used egg shells to represent the teeth and placed these in plastic cups filled with a variety of different liquids. We left the eggs to soak for a week before closely observing and comparing the egg shells! It’s safe to say we will all be thinking twice before drinking sugary drinks and will make sure that we clean our teeth regularly to protect them. Before carrying out our experiment, we considered how we could ensure that it would be a fair test and also made our own predictions about what would happen.
The Masked Reader
To celebrate World Book Day, we want our children to film themselves reading an extract from their favourite book in disguise. On Monday 8th March, when all of our children return to school- yeah! We will show the recordings in class. Can children guess the person behind the mask? What are they reading? We hope that this activity will be lots of fun for everyone.
Mrs Teale and Mr Frelich (our English Leaders), are delivering collective worship on Monday 1st March. In this assembly, they will tell you all about World Book Day and answer any questions that you may have.
-On Thursday 4th March, key worker children can come to school dressed in their disguise and record their masked read with the support of their teaching assistant.
-All masked readings need to be sent to the class teacher through Class Dojo – before Monday 8th March.
-Recordings to be no longer than 30 seconds.

At school, we normally have key stage collective worship on a Thursday. During this time we learn about different religious events and explore special days and weeks.
This week is Children’s Mental Health Week and for the next two days I’ll post videos that we were planning to look at in school.
This year’s theme is Express Yourself. How do you express yourself? It is important to express yourself or how you are feeling?
Here is a short film showing how some people express themselves through art.
A Huge well done to Jasmine who recently received a Blue Peter badge for a story that she sent to the show in Summer.
What an achievement!
We are so proud of you Jasmine.
We are very proud of Alfie and Hughie who ran the ‘Virtual London Marathon’ with their mum to raise money for Rethink Mental Illness. Both boys ran a mile with their mum and together they raised £6350.
What an achievement!
Meet our lunchtime helpers. These lovely children help children tidy away their lunch, pour water and wipe the tables.
Visitors often comment on the kind family feel of our school. We want to celebrate our lunchtime helpers as we believe they make our school extra special.
Our superb cook has been encouraging children to try new vegetables. She is advertising a vegetable of the week and giving out stickers and prizes to children willing to try new things.
If you would like your child to have a school dinner then please ask Mrs Tune for more information.
Today, our year 6 children have been learning emergency life saving skills. Including, CPR, helping an unconscious person and someone choking. Our children begin learning these vital skills in KS2- we are trying to help create a nation of life savers.
