Earth Class


Happy New Year - can you believe that it is 2021!!!! We are all going to remain positive in Earth Class and this year can only get better...and it certainly will when we are altogether doing fabulous learning and activities. 



At the beginning of this new day, I offer you my life.
Come take my voice, may the words I speak be filled with encouragement and goodness.
Come take my hands, may the work they create be generous and giving.
Come take my feet, may the journeys I walk be led by your Spirit within.
Come take my life Lord, for I love your goodness, your kindness and your leading.





Mrs Hunt, Mrs Simpson, Mrs Chapman and Mr Potter xxx

This term our project is Scream Machine!!!!

Roll up, roll up. You’re going on a day trip to a theme park, to soak up the unique sights, smells and sounds of the fair. Learn about the science behind roller coasters and write poems that are shaped as a loop the loop. Design a theme park and show your ideas on a digital map. Time for some mini investigations. Cam mechanisms, pendulums, pulleys and prototypes. Let’s go behind the scenes to see forces at work. Good news. The engineers at ‘Scream Towers’ love your work and want you to build a death defying new drop ride for their theme park. Make a working model and test it out with uncooked eggs. Cracking stuff. Okay, ready to ride? Don’t forget to scream if you want to go faster!!!!!!

Our first Mummification!

Our first two weeks!

Here we are!

During the first full two weeks we have been studying a book called Here we are by Oliver Jeffers. The children have had the opportunity to explore what has happened during our lock down time, how they felt and what were the highs and lows for them. We have taken our time in Earth class to think about how with need to learn to socialise with each other and made our class promises. The children have also thought about what they would like our world to be like in the future and how they can personally make a difference. The children have thought deeply about their own personal emotions upon returning to school. Even though we have not been able to sing we have enjoyed joining in with many actions of our favourite school songs. We have been very impressed with how all the children have returned back to school life and see each of their individual spirits sparkle!

Here we are!
