Heritage Group Banner Project
Class 4 have enjoyed working with Witton-le-Wear Heritage Group during the past half term. They have been working on a project to make a community banner that has been funded through Northern Heartlands. They visited sheep at a local farm and have learnt about how the sheep’s fleece is used to make wool. The children have used the wool to weave on looms and have also created small sheep for on the banner using needle felting. Thank you to all those involved in this project, the children have learnt so many new skills and really enjoyed the experience.
Our Science Ambassadors have had a great morning sharing their knowledge and helping the rest of the school carry out science investigations. They planned sessions that they thought would be appropriate for each class using activities they had worked on when they attended their course. They delivered the sessions with one class at a time and explained what they were going to be doing. Class 1 enjoyed watching Skittles change in water and how static electricity is made using balloons. Class 2 focused on sound activities including ‘shaky pots’ and the coat hanger experiment. Class 3 and 4 made 3D shapes, investigated chromatography and enjoyed testing to see if they could push a kebab stick through a balloon!
