Science Day at Greensward!
A group of Plumberow pupils from Years 3&4 joined pupils from Ashingdon, Hockley and Westerings at a Science Day hosted by Greensward Academy!
They had a fantastic day and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the activities which included using a microscope to study plant and animal cells, carrying out a test to decide which solutions were acid and which were alkali, some chromatography, which involved colouring a pattern on filter paper and seeing how the colours separated and then, using electrical circuits, they looked at the relationship between voltage and current!!
A busy day!
Autumn Term - Roald Dahl Day!
Year 3 celebrated Roald Dahl's birthday with a day full of activities...quizzes, designing ingredients for George's Marvelous Medicine, making beards, reproducing the Enormous Crocodile and James and The Giant Peach, taking part in Trunchball games and lots more! In the afternoon they also 'tuned in' to the Puffin Roald Dahl celebrations live on-line (despite some hiccups with the technology)!
And of course, all pupils (and staff) wore their clothes back to front as per Roald Dahl!
