This term in science we are looking at light, dark and shadows.
We started off by sorting light and dark and talking about what objects produce light. We then talked about how shadows are formed.
We attempted to put up a tent on Monday afternoon, however it was a little challneging so we found a dark room instead. We turned all the lights off and then used tourches to make shadows.

This week in Welbeck we have been celebrating Christmas!
We started by taking part in the Christmas concert with the rest of the school. We sang the 12 days of Christmas but in Shrek style with our very own Donkey (Mr Shooter). Everyone had a different part and a picture to hold up for each day.
For the rest of the week we took part in Christmas around the world, watched the staff school panto and enjoyed having a boogie at the school Christmas disco.
We hope you all have a really good Christmas and a Happy New Year! :)

In our New Horizon lessons, Welbeck have been thinking about other people in our local community and how they may need help and support. We talked about children in need and then thought about children in refuges. We thought about how often these children are removed from their homes without any toys or teddies and what Christmas might look like for them. As a class we decided to make shoe boxes for the children in a local refuge for Christmas. Each child wrapped a shoe box and then thought of 5 items that they could go out and buy to gift to another child.
Due to the generosity of Welbeck class and their parents we will have hopefully made 10 children in refuge a little more happy this Christmas.

As part of our Topic on World War and conflict, Welbeck class had the exciting opportunity to visit Eden Camp in North Yorkshire. Eden Camp is a history museum that occupies a former Second World War prisoner-of-war camp of 33 huts. After the prisoners left it was then used for storage and then abandoned making it the perfect place for a War museum.
It was a long day but everyone had a great time and enjoyed looking at all the photos from the war.

On Tuesday we had a walk to the cenotaph in Kirkby in Ashfield, everyone took turns in laying a poppy wreath and talking about what happens at a remembrance parade.

This term in science we are looking at our digestive system. We have looked at the key parts of our body that help us to digest food and carried out an experiment to visually see what happens.
Everyone made a banana sandwich and then chopped it all up to show how the teeth work.
We put our banana sandwiches in a bowl and added washing up liquid to represent the stomach acid
Children then put the moshed up mixture into a pair of stockings and squeezed them really tight ot get rid of the mositure like in the intestines.
Finally a hole was cut in the end of the stockings and the children squeezed out the mixture to make a solid pretend poo.
Everyone had great fun and was able to undertsand what each part of the process was linked to.
