The children had a fabulous morning completing their design and technology wind turbines. After reading the story ‘The Boy who Harnessed the Wind’ by William Kamkwamba, the children decided to make their very own wind turbines. They first sketched a design and decided what they would need to collect before drawing it out on a computer using ‘Publisher’. I’m sure you will agree that they did a fantastic job! We are looking forward to getting out in the wind this week to test them out!
Today in geography, the children were exploring, remembering and using symbols representing landmarks. They played a really fun game to help them remember each one.
Last week, we had a fantastic walk by the canal following part of Selby’s Hidden Heritage Walk. The children enjoyed learning about the Lock Keeper’s Cottages and the trade along the canal. The sculpture and paving stones, just beyond the swing bridge as the canal goes alongside Shipyard Road, were a special treat! The sculpture summarises the history of the canal and its effect and influence on Selby. This was of great interest to the children.
Following the walk, we enjoyed our visit to the library where the children were invited to look at some old photographs of the Selby Floods both in 1947 and 2000. We are excited and ready to start creating some newspaper reports about the event. It was brilliant to see most of you had returned the forms so your children could get their very own library card. Nearly every child came home with a borrowed book which they were excited to take home and read!
The children would also like to thank Mrs Tymon, who visited school to talk to the children about her families experiences of the flooding in 2000.
What a fabulous day we have had. Having finished their science experiment yesterday to test how much vinegar to bicarbonate of soda to use, the children have thoroughly enjoyed erupting their very own volcanoes! Just look at their faces!
