Year 3 have been selecting books from our school library to take home.
In Art and Design the children in Year 3 have explored Islamic patterns and then selected a pattern for them to develop. They really enjoyed the lesson, some superstar artists!
In art today, Year 4 have started working in the style of Kandinsky.
Year 6 were lucky enough to have a visiting PE teacher from D.A.C.A., Miss Billington, come into our lesson to teach us how to move like gymnasts. We learned that gymnasts make themselves taller and wider, and that they move gracefully. We all had a lot of fun!
Another week, another Science investigation for Y2. This week the children looked at different plastic bottles to see which was the most flexible. They found that the ketchup bottle was easier to squeeze and the water from the ketchup bottle travelled the furthest. It travelled 440cm in total whereas the water in a water bottle only travelled 110cm. They other bottles they tested were a fruit shoot bottle, fairy liquid bottle and a shampoo bottle.
Friday 8th October we will be holding a #HELLOYELLOW day in aid of Young Minds Charity on World Mental Health Day .
Today in our computing lesson, Y4 learnt about plagiarism. We looked at a report about a man called Tim Berners Lee and found that it had been copied from Wikipedia! We then all scored really well in a plagiarism quiz. Great work year 4!
On Friday we said goodbye to Mrs Tootell & Mrs Gettins who are both retiring. Between them they have worked at @DarwenStJ for over 40 years. We held a leavers service for them and the children made lovely gifts and shared special memories. We will miss them lots! Happy retirement to them both from everyone at DSJ.
