Educating Today's Child For Tomorrow

Week 3 w/c 8.3.21

It has been ‘Science Week’ this week!


  • We looked at different inspirational scientists and the different discoveries they had made.
  • In English, we used the book ‘Clean Up!’ to write letters telling people why it is important to stop plastic getting into the ocean. We also ordered the events of the story and wrote sentences to describe each part.
  • We made our own rockets and planned and tested how we could make our rockets fly further. We added or took away fins, threw in different ways and changed the weight of our rockets!
  • We made boats using two materials; foil and paper. We designed our own questions that we wanted to test and predicted what we thought might happen. We then tested our predictions and thought about the reasons why some boats float and some sink.
  • We designed our own inventions to help stop eliminate the problem of plastic in the ocean.
  • Also this week, we have practised using the four main operations in maths; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
  • In music, we sand songs about rockets and the invention of the aeroplane.


Well done on a brilliant first week back altogether Blue Class; you have all worked so hard and deserve a very restful weekend!
