Visit by Prima Wind Quinter

Prima Wind Quintet came to school to perform in our assembly. This was to get children interested in live music who may not have seen or been interested before.

How to make pancake batter

The life skills children made their own pancakes. This is what you need to do. First you need 300 ml of milk, then you need 100g of flour and 2 eggs. Put the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until it is pancake batter. Then put in the fridge to cool down. Recipe by Bailey.

The life skills group made pancakes on Shrove Tuesday

On Tuesday the children made pancakes. They had lots of fun tossing the pancakes so that they cooked on both sides. The children could choose their own toppings they were delicious! And of course after we had finished we washed up.

We went to Marple on the train

The life skills group have been learning about time. We went to the train station and got a timetable for the trains to Marple. We used the timetable to find out what time the trains were and how long the journey took.

We are learning to tell the time

The Life Skills group went on a winter walk in Reddish Vale to see if we could discover any changes that had occurred since our Autumn walk.

Key to Life RE Bus

Year 3/4 visited the RE Bus to take part in a workshop on the life of Jesus Christ.

Map Of The World

We have been learning about the seven continents of the world in Topic. Here the children used their knowledge to put together this rather large jigsaw.

Wibbly Wobbly Jelly Science Experiment

In this Science lesson, we had to see how easy it was to pick up a cube of jelly using two pencils. It was quite easy! Then we added cooking oil to the jelly and we had to see how easy it was then! The children found this quite a challenge as the cooking oil reduces the amount of friction between the jelly and the pencils. We had lots of fun trying to pick up the jelly!
