In science, we have been doing some experiments. Like:
- Salt, Sugar and Water Experiment
- Toast Experiment
- Candle Wax Experiment
When we did the salt and water, two weeks before we left it in a cup and in petri dishes. The salt was in squares that has an outline that is brown. The sugar stuck to the petri dishes and made it translucent.
The toast went lighter and lighter like I predicted. It started off at 44 grams when we toasted it, and the weight dropped down.
When we lit the candle, after 2 hours 30 minutes and the wax got lighter. Also it weighed the same as the toast. We were told that we shouldn’t touch it because it is dangerous. At the end, it weighed 32 grams,
- candle wax experiment. we lit a candle then waited if i would get lighter and it did get lighter.
- salt and sugar experiment what we done was we put sugar in water and put salt i water an waited till it was absorbed and it worked like magic.
- toast experiment what we done is we got toast and then saw if it got lighter and it did.
Then we wrote in our science books our data that we found it was very fun and i wold definitely DO THIS IT IS VERY FUN IT WAS THE BEST WEEK OF MY LIFE.
All week Year Six students have been working extremely hard on their SAT exams. They’ve been preparing since Christmas for the exams, including taking part in early mornings starting from 8:20 and ending at the ring of the first bell, and they’ve been taking part in homework club where Mrs Carrahar, whom has been very supportive, supplies us with a healthy amount of juice and biscuits! We have completed three math exams, two English exams (one spag and the other reading) and one spelling test. After four days of exams and to games of our favorite sport game sudden death (a game like kicky rounders) we were treated with delicious sprinkled donuts! Thank You!
In pastoral care we learned about what royal weddings are like due to our fantastic prince Harry getting married .
We made our own designs for Megan’s lovely dress and Harry`s handsome suit,
Some children designed wedding cakes and other things we can`t wait to see at the wedding.

In year 5 we did a few science experiments with our science teacher whilst our normal class teacher was helping out with the sats . We had a question we thought we should find out more. Our question was…………..will bread get lighter when we toast it? Everyone made their own scientific prediction what they thought would happen. Well we did not actually find out in class, it may be dangerous, we decided to just collect data and see if the results matched our prediction. Through our data we found the bread did get lighter.

Today our Year 4 team took part in the South Shields Skipping Festival at St. Joseph’s Academy. There were 4 other schools present and we skipped together and took part in some competitions too!
Everyone tried their best and we were lucky enough to win 19 Silver awards and 10 bronze awards!
We had a great time and would like to say a big thank you to the organisers of the event and the other schools that took part.

We took advantage of the snowy conditions to learn more about states of matter.
Did you know that water can be a solid, liquid or a gas?
When it’s a solid it’s called ice, when it’s a liquid it’s called water, and when it’s a gas it’s called water vapour.
We used the process of melting to turn the solid ice into liquid water, we also observed the results of pouring salt on snow and ice and discovered this melted the solid creating a liquid!
