TOPS Activity Festival
A group of children from Year 3 and 4 enjoyed participating in the multi sports festival at the Activity Zone, Malmesbury.
The children practised different skills used in athletics, basketball, football, curling and tennis. Fred was noticed by the staff for excellent effort and good sportsmanship. An enjoyable morning was had by all.
Year 5 children used parachutes to help them understand about air resistance and its relationship with speed, velocity and gravity.
The Human Digestive System
Year 4 children spent an afternoon exploring the human digestive system as part of their science topic this term.
Crushed Weetabix (food) was mixed with water (saliva) and orange juice (stomach acids) then squeezed through some tights (small intestine) to separate the solids from the nutrients, then passed through 2 cups (anus) to pass the faeces into the bowl (toilet).
The children found it very engaging and loved the hands-on experience.
