Year 6 STEM Lesson

Earlier this week, Year 6 pulled together all the new forensic skills they have been introduced to this term to solve a 'murder' mystery within the school. There were 5 possible suspects. Using fingerprint identification, synthetic blood testing, fibre and hair sampling, as well other clues from the scene, they pieced together the evidence to try and find the correct suspect! The children also faced a frequently evolving situation as new evidence came in from outside agencies. The class were extremely astute in their forensic analysis and careful to not lose any vital evidence. In the end quite a few of the teams managed to catch the suspect! Great detective work Year 6!

Pupils Enjoy a French Play

Children in Years 3-6 enjoyed watching and performing in a French play this week when the Onatti Theatre Company performed the exciting, interactive French play, ‘Parlez-vous Français’. Using carefully constructed dialogue woven into an original and visually entertaining story, the actors engaged and inspired the children through the amusing performance. Thank you Onatti Theatre for a really entertaining morning, which really complemented our learning.

Year 5 Science

In Science, Year 5 made their own models of the heart. They pumped blood through the arteries and observed how valves stopped the blood from flowing backwards. Great work Year 5!

Visit to Haslemere Book Shop

This morning a group of children from Years 2 to 6 were invited to The Haslemere Bookshop as recognition for their progress and enthusiasm for reading. The children learnt about the bookshop’s history and its importance locally for ethical shopping and supporting authors.

The pupils enjoyed exploring the children’s book section downstairs and then climbed upstairs for more browsing in the second-hand books room. The children then took it in turns to talk about their favourite book which they had brought in from home and explained why they like it so much. They then chose a selection of books for the school libraries and were awarded a book token, certificate and goody bag as a farewell gift. Thank you so much to Haslemere Book Shop for a wonderful morning!

Year 2 Cross Country Competition

A lovely afternoon of Cross Country for Year 2 as they competed against Camelsdale School. Lots of fun and a great introduction to the camaraderie, competition and team spirit, which they'll use in abundance once they reach Year 3 and compete against other schools on a weekly basis. Well done Year 2 and thank you so much Camelsdale School for joining us.

Year 3 Art

In Art this week, Year 3 pupils took inspiration from Piet Mondrian and painted hearts using clean Primary colours and rectangular planes. Black horizontal and vertical lines were collaged onto their hearts and their design was turned into a card to give to someone close to them. A wonderful way to tie up art with Children's Mental Health Week's theme of 'Let's Connect'.

Charity Run

The theme of this year's Children's Mental Health Week is "Let's Connect". A group of our Year 6 pupils realised that one of the best ways to feel connected to our community would be through working together to help others, so organised a sponsored run to raise funds for Shooting Star Children's Hospices. With an afternoon of glorious sunshine, the children ran around the school grounds to raise funds for this wonderful, local charity. Sarah May, from Shooting Star Children's Hospices, came to St Ives to watch the running and presented the children with a sticker and bookmark on completion of the run. The children were thrilled to hear they raised nearly £450 and to learn how the money would be spent. Thank you Shooting Star for inspiring us & for all your work.

Children's Mental Health Week

Yesterday we kicked off Children's Mental Health Week with a day of activities around this year's theme "Let's Connect". Our Wellbeing Champion, Mrs Cooper, led the morning's assembly and encouraged the children to think about how we connect with the people & communities around us. The children also listened to Matt Goodfellow reading his poem 'Together'. Pupils were told to "Dress to Express" and we loved seeing the different ways we dressed to show our individuality and our uniqueness!
