Chick update

The chicks are growing quickly! We have been learning how to care for the chicks and how to gently handle them. The chicks have been on lots of 'holidays' giving children across the school the opportunity to spend time with them.

We are going to miss them when they return to the farm on Friday☹️

Years 3&4 Science Week

Science Week with GSK

Big Body Blood Run

Today Years 3 and 4 were very fortunate to participate in a science week workshop run by GlaxoSmithKline.  We learned all about the blood in our bodies, how we make energy, and how the red and white blood cells operate.

Year 5 and 6 Maths Challenge Day

On Monday 12th March, Christ Church School hosted a Maths Challenga Day for pupils in Years 5 and 6 from local schools. Six of our pupils attended as well. The day involved solving maths problems, building team skills and deepening our mathematical thinking. The children worked together on a maths A to Z table cloth, they designed and made their own mathematical clocks and solved a problem involving four fours. The day was enjoyed by all. 



Science in Hargreaves class


Yesterday, we were fortunate to have four special visitors. They came to teach us about microbiology! All the children in class had the opportunity to take part in two investigations.

First, we found out how difficult it is to wash your hands thoroughly and get rid of all the germs - Thumbs, fingertips and fingernails being the least washed areas. Next,  we investigated how a virus is spread in water. If the water turn red it was infected, if it stayed green it was safe. 

Thank you to the team from GSK for two great activities.
