Creating E-Portfolios

Today, we were busy creating e-portfolios. We designed our own e-portfolios, then we inserted our work that we have been completing this year to show our learning journey. We had extra teachers in the class to help guide us. It was a positive, productive morning!

Mirrors and Images

We investigated how different objects are reflected using light. We learned that when you place an object between two hinged mirrors, light from the object bounces back and forth between the mirrors before it reaches your eyes.

Calamity Jane Musical

4th, 5th and 6th classes had a very entertaining morning in Cooley Hall this morning watching the Bush School perform Calamity Jane! It was such a pleasure to see some of our very talented past pupils involved in such a fantastic production.

5 Stars from all in St. Olivers!

Trapped Water and the Power of Hydraulics

This week, 4th and 5th have enjoyed learning about the power of trapped air and trapped water and the practical implications of hydraulics and pneumatics.

It was great to investigate this in class using plastic syringes and tubing today. We are really looking forward to applying what we learned this week to design and make a moving toy using the power of hydraulics next week!

Mad4Maths Every Day

In 4th and 5th, we’ve really enjoyed daily Mad4Maths time since we’ve returned in 2018. What a great way to end each day by playing maths games with our friends! Some of the visiting 1st class even got to join us in the fun on Wednesday.

New Year Tables Class Champions

4th and 5th really enjoyed competing in a class times tables competition last term, so we’ve decided to have a weekly competition this term. They are a very competitive group and it was a very tight competition today when they were demonstrating their square root facts! All those lunchtime competitions for fun the yard really worked their magic!

We had 5 wonderful round winners today! Well done!
