Form I Weekly News 7th March 2022

11th March 22

We had a busy morning practising for our Form I Class Assembly. We are trying hard to learn all of our lines and can’t wait to show you on Wednesday 16th March!

In Science, we worked hard writing up last week’s experiment. We included the aim of our experiment, method and results.

There was just enough time afterwards to do another little experiment. We discovered the some of the characters from Peter Rabbit were trapped in ice blocks. We explored the ice, finding out what ice actually is and discovering it is a solid material. We thought of ways we could melt the ice blocks the quickest. We decided on putting one outside in the sunshine, one in the cloakroom on the heated floor, one in Mrs Delves Office on the radiator and one in warm water on the window sill. We went back to them at the end of the day and compared results. Mr McGregor who was in the warm water melted the quickest and Peter Rabbit who was outside in the sunshine melted the slowest.

In French, we enjoyed playing a months of the year game with Madame Knight.

On Wednesday, we loved watching Reception in their first Class Assembly. We were so proud of them all.

In Computing, we tried really hard to listening to Miss Smith’s puzzles and programmed the Bee Bots to visit the different parts of the zoo.

In the afternoon, we enjoyed a little Focused Play.  Some of us wrote thank you cards to the Reception girls for their amazing Class Assembly.

On Thursday morning we started with a game of written Eye Spy and wrote down all the words we found on the smartboard picture.  After this we had a practice of our assembly and then went into the hall for a very special treat.  We had been invited to watch the Form 6 show of ‘What a Knight’!  It was absolutely brilliant and very funny!

We hope you all have a lovely weekend and look forward to showing you how hard we have been working next week in our assembly!
