Willow’s tour of nativities

Willow class had the opportunity to attend the Exeter Festival of Nativities at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Wonford Road.

The class had great fun looking the different nativity scenes, dressing up and making their own christmas cards.

Amazing Air Resistance

In our last science lesson we learnt about the effects of air resistance.

In groups we created parachutes and launched them out of the window in hope they would protect an egg!

We found that the larger parachutes with a big surface area fell slower, this was because they faced more air resistance which helped to protect the egg.

There were only a few breakages!

Science Morning

We were lucky enough to have an amazing team of people from Colyton Grammar school, in this morning. They were teaching us all about friction. We were apart of some very fun science experiments and got to complete some of our own.

We sat in hover chairs, had a tug of war over a yellow pages, rode skateboards and made our very own mini hover boards! It was a very exciting morning.

They will be back again next term to look at some of the experiments we complete in school.

Year 5 WW2 Evacuation Day

 

 

We had a great day in Year 5, imagining what it would have been like for children in WW2. They came to school dressed up as evacuees, with their bags packed and their name tags on.

 

We had some visitors from The South West Airfield Herratige Trust come into school in the morning who helped us learn more about Exeter during WW2.
