Y6s preparing for Brigshaw.

Today, we welcomed back 2 of our past pupils Harrison and Jack, and Mr Truscott form Brigshaw high school. The came to talk with the Year 6s about moving on to high school and what to expect. The actually made it sound exciting! Harrison and Jack were great at answering the questions asked, great to see you boys, thank you for supporting the Year 6s.

Mad Science

Today, the Mad Scientist turned up at LEH.
He started with a lesson in thermodynamics.... just how did Eggbert get into the conical flask? and back out again?
 Then more Chemistry... testing to discover whether a solution was an Acid or an Alkaline ... if the red cabbage juice turned red the solution was an Acid
 and blue/green an Alkaline
Then in was on to Physics and we learnt about Thomas Edison and electricity and how it like to 'Earth'.
 Finally, it was combustion.... and we all survived.
The Mad Scientists was amazing and everyone got involved. If you want to do more Exciting Experiments and Practical science investigations, we will be running an after school club soon so you can. Make sure you filling in the letter sent home ASAP! as places will be limited.

Danelaw - A Viking Experience

Today Year 4 and Year 5 had a great time living as vikings .. unfortunately staff were Anglo Saxon slaves....
In the Viking village... do you know what the walks of the houses are made of? We do and they smell and feel very interesting!
Meeting together in a Viking long house... did you know the vikings invented open plan living! 
Of cause we had to visit the toilet!
Inside our humble home, very cosy... it's a good job we all get on.
Making and decorating Viking candle stands ... think we could go in to business?
Making are own entertainment...
Battle practice...charge....(although we found out it was braver to walk) got to keep that defensive line.
A viking long boat, not sure we'd fancy our chances crossing the north sea in this.

Plastic Free Day

The issue of plastic pollution is huge, In School we've been looking at the information on the websites http://www.plasticfreeday.co.uk https://plasticfreetuesday.com
Here is a prayer we have been sharing in Collective Worship this week;

Creator God, we are sorry for spoiling your beautiful world. 
Please help us to be more thoughtful and responsible in the future.
Give us the courage to speak up and ask for policies and programmes to change so that society and businesses become less wasteful.
We give thanks for those who campaign and discover new ways to reduce, reuse and recycle.
We think about the animals and people whose lives are directly affected by pollution and climate change, help us to remember that we are citizens of the whole world and our actions can make an impact on others. 
Amen
