Science week


This week has been science week at Golden Valley. We have demonstrated some experiments for the children to observe including looking at what happens when you put raisins in lemonade and you put oil in water.  The highlight for many children was today’s demonstration of putting mentoes in coke - some of the children likened it to a volcano erupting!

Poppy Day

Today we found out all about Poppy Day and how the poppies we have in school are made.  We talked about how poppies are sold to raise money for soldiers who fought and were injured in wars or to help their families.  We coloured some poppies and drew poppies on the interactive whiteboard.  Some children coloured and cut out poppies to make a poppy wreath:

Making Number Posters

All the children in both classes worked in small teams to create these lovely number posters this morning - they were so good that we thought you'd like to see them!  Each group used a variety of equipment to represent a different number to 10.  We really enjoyed attaching them onto card to make a poster.
