Environmental Area/PSHE

We have been learning about physical touch and how sometimes that can be kind (like a hug or a pat on the back) and sometimes it can be unkind (like fighting or being too aggressive in games). We also learnt to respect people's personal space and ensure we are gentle when playing games. We played 'Scarecrow tag' and 'What's the time Mr Wolf?' to help us understand this.

Our visit to The Knife Angel

Date: 19th Nov 2021 @ 3:44pm

On Tuesday we visited Blackburn Cathedral and the Knife Angel sculpture. We talked about how it was made and the knife amnisty that had collected all of the knives that were used to make it.   The Angel was very big and looked shocked by ow many knives there were. It took over 1900 knives to make it.   Every knife used had once been carried on our streets. Whilst at Blackburn Cathedral we also searched for other angels. these angels were smiling and spreading the message of God. After the visit we had a talk about carrying knifes and knife crime from our local police. 

Back at school we have been writing some thought provoking poetry and doing some sketches about what we saw and how this made us feel. 

Look out for more photos to follow of our Knife Angel work.

What is air resistance?

Date: 19th Nov 2021 @ 3:01pm

In science we have been looking at Forces. We decided to do an experiment to test air resistance.  We needed t make sure the test was fair. So we measured two distances in the MUGA  and collected stop watches and a parachute. We timed ourselves running the distance , then timed our selves again running the same distance but with a parachute behind us.    We found that the parachute caused air resistance and slowed us down.
