Catapult Champions

Year 4 and year 6 have enjoyed making marshmallow catapults today. They have learned that when you pull the elastic band it creates potential energy and when it is released it makes kinetic energy.
The winning team this afternoon was Team Marshmallow. Their marshmallow travelled an amazing 4.3m. Well done girls.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Welcome back everyone! We hope you had a lovely Easter break. It was lovely to welcome the children back into school on Monday, refreshed and ready to learn.
This week we have shared the story The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and we received a very special delivery of caterpillars on Monday. After reading the story, the children have each painted their own caterpillar in the style of Eric Carle, they are fantastic!
We have also been learning about patterns and how they can be made. We made patterns by threading pasta, printed patterns using cardboard tubes and created pattern designs using felt tip pens. We think the children have worked really hard and we are really proud of the fantastic work they have produced.

Take a look below by clicking on the Sandford Hill logos. We look forward to reading your comments.

Easter Bonnets

A big thank you to all those that made an Easter bonnet. They all looked absolutely fantastic and it was clear to see how much time and effort had gone into them.

A big well done to Woodrow and Daniel who won the egg competition, and Vinnie and Emori who won the hat competition.

Well Done!

Well done to Felicity who was the session winner in the Junior Chef competition. Felicity was presented with her award by local Olympic Gold medalist, Joe Clarke and was even lucky enough to be given the opportunity to wear the medal herself. We such had a lovely morning starting with flower arranging for Mother’s Day, followed by the presentation and then a delicious buffet lunch. Well done again, Felicity- you should feel very proud.

Maths, Baking And Fun!

In our final Maths, Fun And Games session we used our skills in division to re-scale a scone recipe. We weighed and measured ingredients, mixed and manipulated sticky dough and finally we enjoyed sharing what we had made.
Many thanks, once again, to all of the parents who took part in these sessions. Your support and participation has been awesome and inspiring.
Mrs Mifflin.

Well done to Lucy and Felicity who took part in this competition organised by City Catering. Both girls produced excellent dishes based on their own recipes and certainly impressed the judges. Good luck to Felicity who has been invited to the awards ceremony and city finals on Thursday.
