Ash Class have been enjoying the snow by looking at icicles and making fabulous snowmen and snow animals, all shapes and sizes, measuring the tallest to the smallest.
In science the children learnt to make giant, colourful ice marbles, noticing how water changes to ice when the temperature gets colder and melts once the temperature warms up.
Mars and Jupiter classes were very lucky early this month to have a ‘live’ question and answer session with Anthony Ogogo, who is an English professional wrestler and former professional boxer. Originally from Lowestoft, Suffolk, he currently lives in America with his wife.
Thanks to Google Meet Anthony was able to ‘join’ us live for about twenty minutes. The children had prepared a number of questions to ask him about his profession and love for his sport. He said that competing in the London 2012 Olympics Games was the highlight of his career and winning a medal was such a bonus and a privilege.
This was a brilliant opportunity to ‘meet’ an international sports personality and we found him truly inspirational.
