Palm class have been experimenting to find how sound waves travel through different materials. We designed sound mufflers from our knowledge to block sounds.






















The children from year 4 who have been on a green card all year were treated to a circus skills workshop today.




In Computing Palm Class used their knowledge of file paths, text editors, browsing and uploading to generate Memes to create awareness of national toilet day. Memes are humorous pictures and videos with captions.


Today in Numeracy the children planned and carried out their own investigations involving measurement. Many of the children chose to measure the weights of the classmates before recording their data in the form of a table and chart.


Today Palm Class had a balanced argument about who invented the flushing toilet. The children presented their arguments but were torn between Thomas Crapper and Alexander Cumming in their final vote. Ask your child their thoughts!


Who votes for Thomas Crapper?


Who votes for Alexander Cumming?


Yemariam produced an excellent piece of work in literacy today. She identified 10 unfamiliar words from the year 5 and 6 spelling list, learned their definitions and was able to use each of them in a sentence. Well done Yemariam.
