Bird Feeders in 2KS

Our Year 2 children have been busy making bird feeders that will be hung outside by Mr Clark. The children really enjoyed getting their hands dirty and were fully engaged in their learning. They are going to create a bird hide where they can take the binoculars out to observe the birds.

Y1/2WB have been making bird feeders.

Y1/2WB have been working hard making bird feeders. Mr Clark has been busy putting them outside our classroom, and we are hoping to attract lots of wild birds. We have created a bird watching station in our classroom to sit and take some time to observe any birds that come to enjoy our feeders. I […]

Y5/6H Science investigation

This afternoon we discussed microorganisms and how they can grow. The children then developed an investigation into how mould grows on bread and what the best location for this is. We have bread in cupboards, outside and even in the fridge. We look forward to seeing the results after half term!

TT Rockstars Day

A huge thank you to all the parents for supporting our TT Rockstars day, we are sorry that our technology didn’t get us off to a great start but I hope you all agree what a wonderful morning it was. Thank you for encouraging your children to get involved they look amazing as Rockstars as […]

Y1/2WB Talk for writing

In Year 1/2 with Mrs Waller and Mrs Bradbury they have been learning about animals linked to their topic on Yorkshire Wildlife park. Mrs Waller has done an incredible job of filming them in action. Here they are, we hope you enjoy their performance.

Y1/2WB have been to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park!

Y1/2WB had so much fun this week at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. We enjoyed looking at all of the animals and learning lots of new facts. We spent some time in the Discovery Centre classroom learning about the different animal groups, the children remembered lots from our science lessons too! The adults and children were […]

Science in Y4/5D

Today in science, the children carried out an experiment related to saturation points. The children predicted how many tea spoons of salt and sugar it will take before the water became saturated.

Science fun!

This week we have been learning all about things which are alive, dead and never been alive. What better way to learn than visiting our pond area to see the wildlife. We saw lots of insects and even frogs! It was very exciting.

Y5/6H Science

This afternoon Y5/6H went outside to test if the boats made in home learning would float or sink. We also tested if they would move along the water. They were a great success and some fabulous learning took place and excellent discussions.

Sink or Float – 6B

Yesterday, 6B tested our Home Learning on the school pond. Many children made boats that either self-propelled or sailed across our school pond. We had great fun watching them sink or float or just not do anything.  We were able to learn from our mistakes and reflect on what we could do next time to […]

Travelling Zoo KS1

We were very lucky to have the travelling zoo into school to meet the children who had moved up to their new class as part of their new topic on Fur, Skin and Feathers. The smiles on the children’s faces was lovely to see and also the fear on some of the staffs faces.

Blast off!

To finish off our topic, Y4/5D and Y5/6H went outside to launch our bottle rockets. We recorded and compared the timings of each rocket. Then we spoke about the science behind the rockets movement, such as the force of gravity, air resistance and pressure.

Y5/6H Forces

The children in 5/6H looked at the forces gravity and air resistance. We investigated if the size of a parachute would slow a rocket capsule down or not. We discovered the larger the parachute, the longer it took an object to hit the ground. 11DC76E1-9238-47EE-8CFB-6AD57015443B

Shireoaks Marina

The children had a fun packed day at Shireoaks Marina. They went pond dipping and learnt about a wide range of plants, insects and amphibians. Next they visited the Dawn Rose, a replica of a cuckoo boat and found out about how it was made. After break, the children learnt how to open and close the […]

Year 5 Space Dome!

Today our Year 5s from Rockingham, Greasbrough and Roughwood have the Space dome in school to learn about the universe. The children have had the experience of seeing constellations, planets and the solar system as part of their Science learning. All children have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and have taken new knowledge to apply to […]

Science

We took our learning outside to do some planting. We looked at what plants need to grow and used our investigation skills to plan an investigation. We chose to put our plants outside, in the cupboard, on the window sill and under a tree to see which one would grow the quickest. Which one do […]

Do you have what it takes to be an astronaut?

Yesterday we learnt about the skills required to become an astronaut. We carried out a fitness test by taking part in the exercises the astronauts have to do to keep fit. We then looked at our reaction times by carrying out an experiment to see how fast we would reacted to catch a ruler. We […]

A Watery Week in Foundation One

In Foundation One we have enjoyed exploring boats and water as part of our learning about the coastguard. We have explored materials and sorted objects that float and sink. We have created boat shapes using foil and counted passengers into our rescue boats. We have made simple sailing boats and had a fantastic time racing […]

Exploring our senses

In science we have been exploring our senses. We felt a smooth conker, smelt sweet perfume and strong coffee, heard birds singing and cars beeping and looked at optical illusions.

4C’s whole school assembly.

As part of our real project, 4C have presented a germs assembly to whole whole school to promote washing your hands and stop spreading of germs. We are so proud of them! They spoke clearly and with clear knowledge. They even had demonstrations and a Q+A section.  

Germ rap!

As part of our REAL project, 4C are creating PSAs for the children of Rockingham. These will be viewed after the assembly children will be presenting to the school. Here is the rap one group has been creating. Music video coming soon! I can’t wait to see the finished results.
