Welcome back to Burscott Class

We have had a very busy first week back. The children have settled well as  a new class and we have jumped straight into our learning.

Burscott Class visit Clovelly in the mist!

As part of this term’s work looking at the history of transport in the local area we were lucky enough to be able to take a short boat trip out of Clovelly on Jim Dickson’s fishing boat.  Visibility wasn’t too good but the children loved it. We did some crabbing, pebble painting and ice cream […]

George’s Marvellous Medicine!

We followed the instructions to make potions today, as part of our work related to Instruction Writing and Roald Dahl’s George’s Marvellous Medicine. Great fun was had by all!

Cricket festival at Westward Ho!

We had a great time this morning at the cricket festival. And we didn’t get wet!!!

Learning and Remembering Text

We started looking at our new text this week and began by learning and reciting some parts from it.

Burford Woods 21/5/2023

Cranford and Burscott classes had  a great day at Forest School in Burford Woods yesterday.

Science Week: Exploding lava slime

This was a real science experiment where we had to adapt quantities and ingredients to make it work. Luckily Mrs Nisbitt had the magic ingredient!

Science Week: Open afternoon

The children loved explaining what they had been up to to their peers across all classes, and to their parents.

Science Week: Double Bubbles

This was sooooo much fun! We had to blow one bubble and then blow another one inside it!

Science Week: Tower building

The challenge was to make the tallest tower possible – although the bigger challenge was NOT to eat the marshmallows!!!

Science Week: Invisible Ink

We wrote secret messages in lemon juice and then made them reappear with an iron! It was awesome!

Science Week – Balloon Cars

What jobs do people do?

In our literacy work we have been looking at Information texts and how to present information about the jobs people do. We had a visitor to talk about his job. We listened beautifully, produced some amazing questions, and have done some great writing based on what we found out.

Burscott Science

As part of our Science on materials, the children had to make a house that would survive the wolf’s 2huff and puff” – in this case a hairdryer! Great fun
