Easter Egg Competition details

Friday 22nd March 2019

Dear Parents/Carers,

“Eggstra, Eggstra, read all about it!”  We are eggstremely eggscited to be holding the Easter Egg competition again this year.

We have held this competition in previous years, so we will have to get our creative caps on and come up with a ‘new and never before seen design’!  Year 6, this may be your last opportunity to enter an Easter Egg competition, so I eggspect to see lots of entries from you!

To enter the competition, all you have to do is hard boil an egg and then decorate it.  

There are many ways in which the children can decorate their eggs; some eggsamples may include colourful patterns or a play on words’. For eggsample, an ‘eggstra-terrestrial’, or ‘eggs-ercise’.  The eggs may be accompanied by a small scene. We would also be looking for entries to include our School Motto ‘Believe, Achieve, Belong’.

Please label your entries clearly with name, class and year group.

All entries must be in the school hall by Thursday 4th April 2019. The competition winners will be announced on Friday 5th April.

Thank you for your ongoing support,

Miss Hardingham

Science Day

To celebrate British Science Week, Sheep class had a busy day experimenting! We predicted, asked lots of questions and then observed what happened!

Firstly, we observed what happened when we added drops of water to skittles. We were amazed when we saw a colourful rainbow! We then tried to make gummy bears dance and were incredibly excited when we made the vinegar bubble, fizz and overflow! We investigated the effect of adding vinegar to milk and found the outcome disgusting!!

Finally, we observed how oil and water do not mix and made our own Rainbows in a Jar to take home!

Science day in Dove class

Doves had fun investigating ‘Loony Liquids’ for science day on Friday. Firstly, we made Oobleck with cornflour and explored how it doesn’t act like a normal liquid. We then made lava lamps and observed how oil and water don’t mix due to their difference in density. Finally, we investigated the effect of washing up liquid on coloured milk, learning that the soap molecules weakened the bonds between the fat molecules in the milk. The children really enjoyed all the hands on activities and were great at cleaning up afterwards!
