Last week, at Coombe Pafford we were doing the Periodic Table and we looked at the first group of elements.
One of the experiments was with Sodium, sadly it didn’t work, but the other two did work.
We got a bus at the bus stop near our school, then went to Totnes train station where we caught the train to Exeter St. David’s and went to Exeter central.
This Tuesday, we went into Exeter, we were learning to plan a trip by bus and train, from Totnes.
We stopped for coffee when we got into Exeter and then went to the Cathedra, later we went for some lunch.
I had a jacket potato and my friend had soup and bread.
Yellow Class and some of Purple class had a fun afternoon exploring a crab, octopus, a dissected fish and a non dissected fish. We observed and felt the different sea creatures before dissecting.
A comment whilst exploring the fish was ‘hello little sweetheart!’.
We talked about how the fish breaths underwater and identified its gills, eyes, fins and tail.
We held the grab and decided if it was heavy or light.
We identified the grab pincers and counted how many legs it had. We decided that its shell was hard and spoke about the reasons why.
We counted how many legs and octopus had and identified the eyes and its suckers. We wanted to see what happened if we squeezed the octopus.
One of the students played vets and wanted make a hospital bed ready for amputation.
Here we are dissecting the fish and octopus, pulling its eyes out and finding out what is inside.
In class, our topic is what if…… I lived 2000 years ago?
On Monday some of us dressed up as Romans and others made shields.
“It was really good when I held my shield. Now I know how the Romans fought”
