in PE we have just completed a unit in dance. We had to choreograph a dance routine which combined different elements. These were:
The music we danced to was from the musical 'Cats.'
This week we have started a new science topic - Forces. We have been looking at gravity. One of the ways we can see the effect of gravity is by looking at craters left in the ground by meteorites that have landed. The more a meteorite weighs, the deeper the crater and the more the dust, earth and rock is scattered. The size of a meteorite can effect the diameter of the crater it leaves in the ground. So we explored the effect of gravity on falling objects.
It was a lot of fun and messy too!!
The winners of the vote were:
First place - Rachel
Second place - Ella and Jessica
Third place - Sophie and Hermione
Christmas Party Fun!!
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas
On Friday 12th December we held our House Enterprise Christmas Fair. It was a great success and we raised over £400 for Ashgate Hospice. The winning house was Lucas who made a profit of £104.23!
The children worked extremely hard and we were grateful for the support we received from the Design Technology department at Outwood Academy Newbold. Their stall raised £52.72 which they have kindly donated to Ashgate Hospice. Below are some pictures of the event.
Having fun in science!
