Super Seisometers

We have been learning about earthquakes and the different types of seismic waves; surface and body (primary and secondary). We found out how they are measured and then made our own seisometers. We tried to replicate the different types of seismic wave by moving the table in different ways.

Takeover Day

Year 5 loved Takeover day. Our new ‘teachers’ took the register, led Morning Activities, delivered and marked a spelling lesson, taught us about averages, practised the Christmas play, encouraged us to think about our favourite pancakes, did break duty and exhausted us in PE! In the afternoon, the children led a science/art lesson. In addition, one of our class helped Terri in the front office and one of the other girls was Headteacher for the day and assisted Dame Alison with the running of the school, as well as leading a fabulous assembly.  We were also visited by a number of Mr Davys. I have shared some of the photos with the original Mr Davy and he is honoured and impressed by the ‘cool dudes!’ Here are a few photos:
