Spring 1

The culprit is revealed...

 

Today we looked at all of the suspects fingerprints. We sorted them into the patterns we could see. We narrowed it down to three people because we know the culprit had a loop fingerprint.

In assembly we went through every year groups evidence to narrow it down to the one person... and it was MR DEVLIN!!

Although he told us he needed the money for a new trophy cabinet.. so Mr Outterside told us that he will help us Mr Devlin get one smiley

Science - CSI

 

We were shocked by the announcement that the famous painting by Marcel Riley was 'stolen'!! Each year group was given a piece of evidence that was left at the crime scene to investigate. The list of suspects were 12 teachers.... and somehow Miss Holisz and I ended up being a suspect too!! Although.. it definitely wasn't us...smiley

 

We were given the fingerprints that were left at the scene. First we had to become experts on fingerprints and find out all about them. We used play dough, blue tack, paper and balloons to experiment...

Science

 

Year 2 went out to the garden today to investigate microhabitats. First we explored and had a look around. We then made a tally chart for the amount of minibeasts we found so we could create our own pictogram for this.

 

This afternoon we had a woodlouse experiment to test which conditions they prefer to live in. We collected woodlice and made 4 different conditions for them: dark and damp, dark and dry, bright and damp and bright and dry. We left them for 20 minutes to find out the results. We discovered that they mostly went towards the dark and damp area! What a fun day we had smiley

Meeting Samuel Pepys

 

What a great start to the week!! We are really loving our new topic - Great Fire of London. We were greeted by the famous diarist Samuel Pepys today to share his story. Its fair to say we couldn't believe how different life was in 1666. He told us all about what happened when he saw it and how he buried his best cheese and wine. Some of us even got to taste some of it!

 

Can you do any research at home about Samuel Pepys?
