As part of our topic on World War II, Poppy Hilditch put together a wonderful presentation about her part German / part British family and their lives in the war. Fantastic work Poppy - well done!
Beech class pupils had a fantastic time exploring STEAM museum as part of their World War II topic.
They spent the morning experiencing what it would have been like to live in a city during the war and have to take shelter from the bombing during air raids. After that they took a train ride as evacuees to the safety of the country where some were chosen by rural families, including the local vicar (the part of which was played by our very own Mr John!).
In the afternoon the children explored the museum and learned about the roles that men and women played during WWII as well as how industry, manufacturing and engineering changed in the 1900s.
(They also enjoyed playing on the trains!)

This week in science, pupils used their knowledge of the water cycle to make working models out of plastic. Water was added to one side and pupils had to try (through a process of evaporation and condensation) to get water to pass to the other side by leaving the models out in the sun.
The experiment was very successful with most pupils able to get water to pass from one side of their water cycle model to the other. Well done Beech Class!!
