Today we did a practical demonstration on how the digestive system works, or as the children will explain it to you “we made poo”.
We used bran flakes and beans as the food and juice to be the saliva to help to brake it all down. We mashed it all up with our hands (chewing) before it went through the oesophagus into the stomach. Here it was mixed with stomach acids (more juice) before it continued its journey into the large and small intestines. The water was squeezed out here and the solids continued on into the rectum.
On Friday 15th November we are inviting all children and staff to come into school in their onesie or pyjamas, in return we are asking those dressing up to donate a coin which we will pass onto Children in Need.
4TM were lucky enough to receive letters back today from their french pen pals
Young people from Alleyne’s school came yesterday to practise various sporting skills with the children.
They commented on how focused 4TM were. They really worked well with the young people and did Rosendale proud.
We have started our topic on Victorians and today we were thinking more about what it means to be a historian. We talked about primary and secondary sources and all the things around us that can give us clues or tell us things about the past.
This got us thinking about street names and we wondered how Rosendale Rd and consequently our school got its name. As a challenge maybe your child can check out some sources and find out how!!
Parents evening is on the 21st November. Your child has come home with a letter today so you can make an appointment to see me.
Just a reminder that our class assembly is on 22nd November at 9.30
