During the week beginning Monday 4th February 2019, we enjoyed ‘Everybody Writes Week’ at St. John’s. The focus was Science and scientists. Every class had the opportunity to learn about different scientists, to engage in practical experiments throughout the week and to present their learning in written form.
The week launched with an assembly on Monday morning, in which children were invited to share any research and learning that they have undertaken during the weekend. On Friday 8th February, children were invited to come to school dressed as a scientist. In the afternoon, children from each class had the opportunity to present their learning from throughout the week.
Children’s learning will be displayed and celebrated throughout corridors and we look forward to welcoming parents into school to share this with us in the coming weeks.
Year 5 have been learning all about Stephen Hawking and Valentina Terashkova.
We have explored Stephen Hawking’s work on black holes and the theories he developed.
For Valentina Terashkova, we have investigated her voyage into space on the Vostok 6 and then became aerospace engineers by creating our own satellites.
