Year 6 Imax and Science and Media Museum

Yesterday, Year 6 went on a trip to the Science and Media Museum in Bradford. We took part in 2 workshops, watched a science film on the Imax and looked around the exhibitions. We learnt lots of new facts about photography and cameras. We also had the chance to experiment with lights and cameras as well as taking part in science experiments. 

In the Imax cinema we watched a film called ‘Mysteries of the unseen world‘. It showed how cameras can capture things that are too small, too fast or too slow for the eye to see. It was fantastic. Here is a clip.

Here are the rest of our photos.

Well done to all the children who represented St.Paul’s brilliantly and received a compliment from someone at the museum for their excellent behaviour.

** Tell me a new fact you learnt below please **

Year 3 : Spring 1

This half term in Year 3 we are looking at : Our Local Area

We plan on going out on lots of local walks to discover how Wibsey has changed in the last 100 years.

In History we will be looking at how Wibsey has changed, how jobs have changed and the difference between now and then.

In Geography we are looking at our local area and using maps to get around.

In Art we are looking at David Hockney and his famous painting of Salts Mill. Keep your eyes peeled for our versions and attempts at painting St Paul’s Church in the style of David Hockney.

In English we are writing our own fairy tales and later in the half term we will be creating leaflets about Wibsey with an interesting fact or two!

In Science we are looking at animals and humans and what they need to survive including food, nutrients, skeletons and muscles.

In Maths we are learning how to do use different measurements and tell the time. Help us by asking us to read the time to you!


Year 4’s Hindu Shrine

Last Friday, in RE,  Year 4 learnt that Hindus can worship in a temple called a Mandir or at home and that they do so in front of a shrine. A shrine  can be anywhere in your home and usually has a murti (statue of a Hindu god or goddess), a bell, some kum kum powder, some water, some fruit  and some flowers.

The children enjoyed designing their own shrine in our classroom and making flowers for it.

Well done, Year 4!

Year 6 Science 19.1.2018

Today, Year 6 have been investigating circuits and the symbols used to show a circuit.They created simple circuits and also included a motor. They worked in groups brilliantly and everyone was able to light up their bulb and spin the motor.

Can you remember why we use symbols in our circuit diagrams?

What did you learn about circuits?
