Science Day

Queen Emma had a fantastic Science Day based upon the British Science Week theme of ‘Our Diverse Planet.’ Each year group’s learning was based upon a continent and the children had a day filled with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) based activities.
Year 1- Asia- First the children discussed how people around the world are diverse and how that makes them special. They then went into the hall and drew around each other, thinking about their diverse qualities and also what similarities they all share.
Year 2- Australasia- Year 2 pupils learnt about the importance of forests in Australia and the devastating affect that the recent bush fires had on the environment and animals that make the forests their habitat. They had to use their engineering skills to build a tree, in pairs, using 4 pieces of recycled paper. Plus they weren’t allowed to use any glue, paper clips, blue tac or sellotape! The children really had to use Habit 2, Begin with the end in mind and Habit 6, synergize.
Year 3- Europe- Pupils had to work really hard using the ipads to research animals native to Europe and design a hotel for them to stay in. They had to think about the features of their habitat and why the animals would want to stay in their hotel.
Year 4- North America- We all know that parts of America can have a hot climate, so Year 4 used their scientific knowledge to create the best insulated pot for a plant. They planted their seed and had a variety of materials in order to insulate their pot. Let’s hope some of them grow!
Year 5- Africa- Year 5 used their Maths skills to look closely at the mathematical properties of a variety of African flags. They also made habitat hotels for African insects, thinking about what they would like. Plus there are a lot of African insects to build a home for!
Year 6- Antarctica- The pupils in Year 6 had a full day of learning, looking closely at the polar regions. First they explored and experimented with iron fillings and magnets, relating to the magnetic poles of Earth. Then they carried out an experiment of how to insulate water in a bottle. They took the temperature of the water and decided which materials would be best to insulate the bottle. Then they created their insulated bottle and kept recording the temperature.
All the pupils had a fantastic day during British Science Week and some of the children’s costumes were amazing. Thank you ever so much for everyone’s hard work in order to make the day so successful.

 

Year 3

Stone Age to Iron Age

The Year 3 classes have been learning all about the Stone Age to the Iron Age. The children used a range of sources of evidence and their questioning skills during their Stone Age day to learn how humans changed from hunter gatherers to early farmers. They also learnt how the introduction of metal through the Copper – Bronze and Iron Ages changed the way people grew their crops to how they fought in wars.

 

Year 3

Persuasive Advertising

Year 3 wrote persuasive texts advertising samosas as part of our topic on India. We then used the IMovie app on the IPads to make our own TV adverts with voiceovers, music and titles! It was a huge learning experience for everyone, but the Year 3s really synergised and collaborated well to complete the task! We hope you enjoy these examples.

Leader in Me

For the first 8 days of the Autumn term we have been introducing all the children to the 7 habits and our new whole school project: The Leader in Me.
Please see the link to our daily newsletters which introduced parents to each habit and our celebration day on Friday.
We are seeking to teach children that they are the leader of themselves and with the 7 habits they can become leaders of others.

Arts Festival

On Tuesday 2nd July, Queen Emma enjoyed an Arts Festival where all classes enjoyed a mix of art, English and musical activities. We had a great day (as you can see by the pictures below).

Nursery enjoyed a musical sessions with Rat-a-Tat and lots of outdoors activities. Reception and KS1 listened to local group Shake, Rattle and Roll who brought  a range of exciting musical instruments in. Year 1 also had an amazing morning working together to paint outside. Year 2 created some weird and wonderful magical potions and investigated ‘The Air we Breathe.’

KS2 enjoyed a musical performance from members of St John’s Choir. Year 3 also loved a recorder workshop and made beautiful natural clay faces. Year 4 decorated tiles with stunning Islamic patterns and Year 5 made origami to hang in school. Year 6 enjoyed a performance from The King’s Men at Queen Edith before making dreamcatchers.

Special thanks must go to volunteers from the community who came in to run some of the activities. It was greatly appreciated and the whole day was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
