  • Eggciting Science!

    Published 09/10/20

    Over the past week, Year 3 and 4 conducted a scientific investigation into tooth decay. They investigated the effect certain types of liquids have on their teeth. For the purposes of the experiment, five boiled eggs acted as teeth. Each egg was placed into a cup containing a different type of liquid: orange juice, apple juice, coke, water and milk. Each morning, over a five day period, pupils observed the eggs and noted down their findings. The results were very interesting and showed us the importance of eating a well-balanced, healthy diet and maintaining good oral hygiene.

  • KS1 Senses Walk

    Published 25/09/20

    This week, Key Stage One went for a lovely walk in the local park (before all the rain came!)

    We used our senses to see the aeroplanes in the sky, cars driving past and we even spotted the White Horse on the hill! We used our sense of hearing to identify the sound of a dog barking, leaves crunching and children chatting!

  • Welcome Back!

    Published 18/09/20

    This week Year 3 and 4 have been focusing on our return to school and how we can quickly settle in to life back at All Souls'. Every morning as a class, we have talked about various ways we can deal with our return after being away from both our friends and our classroom based learning for so long. We spoke about how we can manage change in our lives, how we can reconnect and re-engage and how we can support, listen and talk to one another. By talking with each other, we are building confidence and rebuilding our school community.
    We have been able to get straight back into our learning and look forward to the challenges that lay ahead. We feel ready for them and glad to be back with our friends and teachers. We also want to thank our families for all the support they have shown us over the last six months.

  • Fire! Fire!

    Published 14/02/20

    This week, KS1 have been learning about The Great Fire of London. The children have been keen to find out about the event and have produced some 'sizzling hot' fact books and diary entries!​ 

    The children found out that the fire spread so quickly because the houses were made of wood and built so closely together. We've ended our topic with a 'smoke' and a 'bang' as we decided to burn down our own city to see what this would look like!​
