Science Day at Greensward!

posted 26 Sep 2017, 11:36 by Sheila Bacon   [ updated 26 Sep 2017, 11:52 ]



A group of Plumberow pupils from Years 3&4 joined pupils from Ashingdon, Hockley and Westerings at a Science Day hosted by Greensward Academy!
They had a fantastic day and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the activities which included using a microscope to study plant and animal cells, carrying out a test to decide which solutions were acid and which were alkali, some chromatography, which involved colouring a pattern on filter paper and seeing how the colours separated and then, using electrical circuits, they looked at the relationship between voltage and current!!
A busy day!

Autumn Term - Roald Dahl Day!

Year 3 celebrated Roald Dahl's birthday with a day full of activities...quizzes, designing ingredients for George's Marvelous Medicine, making beards, reproducing the Enormous Crocodile and James and The Giant Peach, taking part in Trunchball games and lots more! In the afternoon they also 'tuned in' to the Puffin Roald Dahl celebrations live on-line (despite some hiccups with the technology)!
And of course, all pupils (and staff) wore their clothes back to front as per Roald Dahl!

Travelling by Tuba!

posted 28 Jun 2017, 11:17 by Sheila Bacon   [ updated 28 Jun 2017, 12:26 ]

'Years 1 and 3 from Plumberow, Years 3 and 4 from Grove Wood and some classes from Edward Francis and Edwards Hall, came together in Grove Wood's sports hall for a musical adventure!
Two guys took us on a musical journey around the world, explaining how the Tuba came about. Back to Roman times with their army horns to an Alpine horn from Switzerland, that was used as the "first mobile phone" to communicate across the mountains from the shepherds!
The African horn was originally made out of a hollow orange and then made out of clay baked in an oven and used across tribes to talk.
The silver tuba worn around the body was an American version of the tuba, to carry in a marching band. The children had the opportunity to try some of the different instruments and joined in with the songs.'
