Good morning everyone, it's another beautiful day; I hope some of you managed to enjoy some of the sunshine yesterday. Thanks again to everyone who attempted yesterdays tasks, we had a slight drop in completion numbers from Tuesday so hopefully everyone can log in today. Remember - the longer you leave it, the less likely you are to do it. Try to make a timetable and stick to a routine. I have noticed those people who consistently log in every day and I am really impressed with you - well done.

2) Read Theory x 2 minimum please.

3) LBQ code - eji  (Go on Timestables Rockstars for 15 minutes as a warm up).

Have a great day.

Mr Horsley.

Good morning everyone - hope you are all enjoying your week so far. Thanks again to those of you who completed all of yesterdays tasks. I tend to keep most of my LBQ tabs open throughout the day so I've enjoyed seeing who is logged on and what they are doing (some of you are definitely early birds!). Of course it is typical, after a horrible few months of weather, that the sun has decided to appear just in time for a home lockdownfrown

Feel free to comment on the blog with any questions you might have...or just to say hello - school feels very different without you all.

 

Have a nice day!

Modelling the solar system, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 11th Mar 2020 @ 1:52pm

Today in Science, we created a scale model of the Solar System. We began by recapping our knowledge of the planets from the previous week including their distances and sizes, before choosing which fruit represented the planet and comparing it with our peers.

Following on from this, we then worked in groups to work out a scale model – applying our mathematical knowledge.

Once we had accumulated all of the information, we began to create a scale model of the solar system demonstrating the distances.

Planets in our solar system, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 11th Mar 2020 @ 1:50pm

In science, we conducted some research into all the planets using a range of sources off the internet and through a range of non-fiction books. We also learned about the background information as to why Pluto was declassified and demoted to a dwarf planet.

Here are some of the interesting facts we learnt today:

– Jupiter has poisonous clouds with drops of acid that would burn your skin.
– Mars has the largest volcano in the Solar System (three times as high as Mount Everest)                         – Venus is the hottest planet despite Mercury being the closest to the Sun.                                                        – Neptune is sometimes further away from the Sun than Pluto

Bridges, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 11th Mar 2020 @ 1:47pm

Kingfishers have worked brilliantly on their bridges in DT this term. The finished articles look great. Well done to everyone for working so sensibly and safely throughout the unit.

River and RE walk, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 11th Mar 2020 @ 1:46pm

Our river walk didn’t exactly go to plan today! We saw lots of water but unfortunately not in the river. As we set off, we were greeted by torrential rain which led to us seeking shelter in the playground pavilions. A group decision was made between us all that we would at least try and see some places of worship in Westhoughton but that a trip to the river was not a sensible idea. The children coped brilliantly with this disappointment and we were happy to to be able to show them Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church and St Bartholomew’s church.

Mr Griffiths also pointed out the memorial to the 344 men and boys who lost their lives in the 1910 Pretoria Pit disaster and the children were also delighted to see a wreath from The Gates alongside many others at the war memorial. Whilst it didn’t go exactly to plan, the children had a nice afternoon and we finished the day making Christmas decorations for the children to take home and hang on their trees.

Manger et Bouger, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 11th Mar 2020 @ 1:44pm

As part of our Healthy Lifestyles French topic, we learnt about activities we do to stay healthy. We then went round to the classroom asking people ‘Qu’est-ce tu fais pour maintenir ta santé (What do you do to maintain your health?). Recording this on a sheet.

Properties of materials, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 11th Mar 2020 @ 1:42pm

Kingfisher class spent the afternoon researching the properties of a range of different materials. We tested for magnetism, flexibility, permeability, transparency and hardness. The children worked brilliantly together in teams of two and conducted the activity safely and sensibly. We finished the lesson with a really interesting discussion about the advantages and disadvantages of glass bottles versus plastic bottles. We agreed in the end that if a drink comes in a glass bottle it might look more appealing, but is likely to cost us more money that it would have done in a plastic bottle!

Finding the Rhythm, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 11th Mar 2020 @ 1:41pm

In Music, we continued to learn the song ‘Make you feel my love’. We learnt about the terms: pulse, rhythm and pitch and found these by clapping the rhythm and copying the riffs on the Glockenspiel.

Computing- Digital Literacy, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 11th Mar 2020 @ 1:40pm

Kingfisher class are really enjoying their computing unit about digital literacy. The children have been set a challenge to create an information leaflet for Year 4 children about how to stay safe online. They have conducted research into the SMART rules of internet safety, taken quizzes about staying safe online and practised their typing skills through the Purple Mash online platform. Over the next couple of weeks they will use their word processing skills to create the information leaflet on the computers in the ICT suite before writing a blog post all about their work.
