The Planetarium at the Harris Museum
12 February 2019
On Monday, Class 7 went on a school trip to the Harris Museum. We were split into two groups, one went inside the inflatable dome, called the Wonder Dome, whilst the other group was exploring the other parts of the museum. So, in the Wonder Dome, a man called Ben was talking to us about the planets, our moon and the sun. He also told us about a space rocket called Saturn 5, apparently the largest and most powerful rocket built, which can no longer be replicated. After the planetarium, we were able to look around the museum, paintings and drawings that famous artists had created, it was amazing. I looked at the old coins that people used a long time ago. There was also phones that had voices from famous people, talking about different topics. Now it was time to go, we got our coat and left on the bus. Jayden

In preparation for writing our own Science fiction stories, we have been looking closely at the story of E.T. Some children in class wrote a blurb for this story. 'E.T has left his planet and has crashed on Earth. It is up to Elliot to help him get back home. They must get going quickly because the scientists are already after him. Elliot must stay strong ....' Jacson 'A boy called Elliot finds an alien friend. He decides to name him E.T, but he doesn't know how to get home. Elliot tells his brother and sister, but it isn't too good when the scientists try to catch him to study his species. E.T must go home. Will he survive? Read on to find out what happens!' Mohammed B

St. Clare's Crib
08 January 2019
Today, we went to Church and we were greeted by Fr Andrew. As we entered the church, we saw the giant crib. The stable had ivy on the roof and Mary and Joseph were inside, along with baby Jesus, the three Kings (Gaspar, Balthasar, and Melchior) and the shepherds. It was an amazing sight. Asher C7 Today, we learnt about the crib at Church. Fr Andrew took us deep into the meaning of the crib, telling us about the shepherds and the wise men. We got to tell the class who we would want to be at the nativity scene and give the reasons behind our answers. Isaac C7

Children in WW1
04 December 2018
Today in Class 7, we have been learning about what children dad during WW1. We went into the ICT room and carried out some research. A little taster of what we learnt - What did children do for fun? They played games such as Blow Football, spinning ops, skipping ropes and lots more! Worked in partners, which was fun! It has been a really fun day. Teresa C7
