Today 8G were introduced to our new Science unit 'State of Matter'. Whilst we were quite bewildered at first we soon became interested when it involved chocolate! We discussed some different types of solids, liquids and gases before getting messy with chocolate by rubbing it and melting it on our…
On Tuesday 11th October 8G went to the Trafford Centre to Build a Bear, and to make their class mascot Billy.
We really enjoyed the visit. First we had to choose a bear, take turns to stuff him, choose an outfit, and then make his birth certificate, We had a super day topped off with lunch at…
8G have a busy and fun half term ahead of them. Here is what we will be learning about:

8G have started as they mean to go on and it was lovely to welcome them back after the summer break. This week pupils have been (slowly) getting back into their routine and getting ready for their learning.
The fantastic summer diaries have been the scope of some fantastic English work, both…
We usually cook in 8G on a Thursday but because of this gorgeous weather that we are currently having, it is tricky to cook lots of things as it is too hot or they end up melting!
So, as a change, we decided to swap our Food Technology and Community Access around just for this week.
It was the Golden Ticket reward visits yesterday for both Primary and Secondary Phase.

Another scorcher of a day to end our fantastic Sports Week!
8G walked a mile this morning around the bike track, only stopping to get their cards stamped by Mr Byrom-Jones and his helpers from Rowan Class.
Even though the weather was so warm, all of 8G managed to complete their mile.
8G had a fantastic time at Liverpool World Museum yesterday.
We got to look around the Bug House exhibit as well as the Ancient Egypt one too.
It was lovely to hear all of the things that the pupils had remembered from learning about Egypt in Summer 1.
We ate dinner outside as the…
As part of Sports Week, 8G were lucky enough to be able to have a go on the climbing wall this morning.
The weather was scorching but that didn't phase 8G. Nearly all the class had a go at climbing the wall which is fantastic.
Even Mrs Devlin (who is very scared of heights!!) had a…
