We ended the half-term with an inter-house hockey tournament. Excellent hockey skills on display by everyone - Year 6 you are hockeytastic!!!
Today we learnt about diffusion and osmosis in our bodies through a range of investigations. We found out what happened to eggs in vinegar, jelly snakes in water and skittles in water. The results amazed us!
Today we furthered our understanding of measures in a practical workshop. We thought about length, weight and capacity. Remember to ask us to convert between units of measure.
Today we went to Walton on the Naze as part of our Coasts geography topic. It was a great learning experience and one of Cranbourne’s 11 before 11.
Today we took part in the World’s Largest Lesson. We wrote to McDonalds to ask them to change their policy in relation to the use of plastic straws as part of the international #stopsucking campaign.
Teams from Upper School took part in the John Warner STEM day by racing buggies which they had created in a workshop the previous week. They were a credit toCranbourne school and had a great time.
