What a superb day! Starting with an early start, leaving school at 8am, we arrived at the Natural History museum at 10.30am where we spent 3 and half hours enjoying and engaging withthe museum displays.At 1pm we left theNHMfor a quick tour around London taking in the sights of Buckingham Palace, Westminster,Big Ben and the London Eye (I was particularly impressed with our tour guide!)Following this we headed to Drury Lane and theTheatre Royal where we found our seats towatch the sensational Charlie and Chocolate Factory.After a mesmerising performance we headed back to the coach and made our way back to Gloucestershire entertained all the way by radio Edie. I hope you all had an excellent day, thank you for making it such a brilliant trip!
Here are some of our highlights…
‘When Charlie got the golden ticket’ – James

On Tuesday, Professor Schnitzel, assisted by Tumblemagetski came to Sparrowhawks to to explain how our digestive system works. We had already studied this, using animation on the ipads, research at home and school and presented our findings in our class assembly. It was useful to share and extend our knowledge in a fun way.
Today in class we were given a special treat in the form of Professor Shnitzle, who came to explain how the human digestive system works. We learn how food passes through our bodies stage by stage until it turns into waste, (poo)! Afterwards we all had a chance to make our own poo using Mars,Treacle and Choc Raisins and Digestive biscuits.
We have been investigating which materials make good conductors and which do not. We created a Carroll diagram to show our results. The school bell did conduct electricity depending on where the wires were placed. Unfortunately we still had the bell at playtime and they had to blow a whistle instead as the bell ringer couldn’t find the bell!!
In science this term we have been investigating solids, liquids and gases and recently we investigated liquids and looked to answer the question, are all liquids the same?
We will be discovering the science behind why the liquids didn’t mix together later in the week but here are some of our thoughts so far…
‘the heavier liquids sink to the bottom’
‘some of the liquids are more dense than others’
‘the particles and atoms of the liquids at the bottom are closer together.
