Titanic Passengers

'Ship Shape’ Experiment

Even though the Titanic was built from iron (a heavy metal) it was still able to float and travel on the water until it hit the iceberg. We decided to investigate ship shapes.

Using play doh, we all made a boat. All of our boats were different! Some were big, some were small. Some were round and some were long. We placed them in the water to see if our ship shapes floated...

Some of our ships floated, but a lot of them sank. We decided that this was because some of the ships we made let the water in, as the sides were too low. Some ships sank because they had a hole in. We improved our ships by making sure they had tall sides and were not too thin, to prevent holes letting water in. The Titanic floated because of its shape, and only sank when it hit the iceberg because big holes let the water in. It then sank quickly because it was so heavy.

St Patrick’s Day - Friday March 16th 2018

180318a

Saint Patrick is our very special Saint, because our school is named after him. To celebrate St Patrick’s Day, we had a special day in school.

We were all given our new Class Saints, and we did lots of art work based on these. We all wore green clothes, and we had a party lunch with jelly and ice cream. Each class also had a delicious cake, which were made especially for us by one of our mums.

We all enjoyed a fabulous day, to celebrate St Patrick, our Patron Saint.

 

School Council - Hills Books - 15 March 2018

Our School Council arranged a bag-packing session at Asda, where we raised £400. The School Council decided that the money should be spent on some new reading books for Key Stage 2, as this was what the children wanted most (but we also managed to squeeze in some books for Early Years and Key Stage One!) A group of children (who especially love reading) were chosen to go to Hill’s bookshop, to select the books for their class – they had made lists of their class-mates’ choices to take along, to make sure they didn’t forget any special requests! They also got a special gift to take home…for being so very well behaved.

The children wanted to say a special thank you to Miss Stewardson, who helped them to organise the bag-packing and the trip to the book shop…as well as driving the mini-bus!!
