4E have been using their homework to brainstorm what they know about Eyam, Derbyshire. They discussed the facts they found and learnt more from each other. After this, they recorded the facts learnt about Hamelin over the past half term, as they have been using ‘The Pied Piper of Hamelin’ as their class book. Tomorrow, they will compare the two places using our geography and history knowledge.
Year 4 had a fantastic time at the Liberal Synagogue in Nottingham city centre this morning. We listened carefully to Norman and impressed him with what we already knew. Whilst one class went downstairs to write the Mezzuzah prayer in Hebrew, the other class stayed upstairs and explored the synagogue and some Jewish artefacts. We got to try on Tallits and Kippurs and even use a Yad to discover how the Torah is read.
4E used the ‘Tell me more’ technique to learn some facts about The Torah and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs in preparation for our visit to the synagogue tomorrow. We have some questions we’d like to find the answers and some facts to impress our guides!
Year 4 conducting their Science investigation into sound. They used a range of medium to explore vibrations and how sound travels and record what they learned. A very enthusiastic and engaging lesson!
Year 6 preparing for their class liturgies
Attending the Secret Science Show. Everything linked to eating and sleep in the wonderful surrounds of Wollaton Hall. Presentations and investigations. The group was definitely divided with the ideas of insects being harvested for protein. It didn’t stop some though!
The SEC boys footballers have enjoyed a busy and successful start to the term with victory in the prestigious Rushcliffe Autumn 6 aside – a feat last achieved back in 2009. Having beaten Heymann 1-0 in a closely contested final, it now means that the boys go on to represent Rushcliffe in bid to become Nottinghamshire champions and who knows… on to National champions! Watch this space. So far, over 20 of the Year 6s have represented the school in matches against Ruddington, Abbey Road and Edwalton
An equally impressive start to the term for the SEC girls’ footballers, with many having never played before. We showed our strength in depth at the Rushcliffe 7 aside entering not just one team, but 3 – including a very talented group of year 5s (and a year 4!) 14 matches were played in total with an overall record of 7 wins, 4 draws and 2 losses. Heymann await in the Rushcliffe Cup first round and Carnarvon in the County Cup. Watch this space.
