SCIENCE!
We were really lucky on Thursday to have Mr Galvin come into school and show us some science experiments. He made rainbow colours, mini explosions, clouds and he launched rockets! 

The children had so much fun and really enjoyed seeing some of the experiments in real life.

Science!
Adding to our plant topic, we have decided to place seeds in zip lock bags and place them in different places to compare how much they germinate. We put a bag in a cupboard, on the window and outside. We will let you know the results!

Arts and Culture Week
To celebrate Arts and Culture week, we took part in a Continents and Oceans theatre workshop, created Rangoli art and clay models using Holi Festival colours, Mehndi designs, used chalk to show the coloured powder used during Holi festival, wrote our own Holi Festival information leaflets in English and Holika bonfire tissue paper art!

We have been very busy but had lots of fun and the children have loved the opportunity to be creative and learn about another culture. We hope you enjoy seeing what they have made!

Roman Invasion!
The Roman Empire conquered Year 3 today! We have been food tasting, exploring myths and learning more about the mighty army! Our artwork was inspired by Boudicca’s rebellion and destruction of Colchester.

Hamlet workshop
In year 5 this week, all three classes were able to take part in an interactive workshop around the play Hamlet by William Shakespeare. 

In Aspen and Hawthorn, this meant going to the upper hall and working together to reenact the play. For Alder, this took place online but was still great fun.

Empathy Day
Empathy is our ability to understand another person and feel their emotions. It's a force for change because it makes us want to help people. Empathy Day helps us understand each other better by using books to step into someone else's shoes. When you read, your brain reacts as it would to real events.
