Red Nose Day
This half term some of our families have been completing healthy challenges, with the health team from Salford. They have been learning about the different food groups. Here they are playing a game with the different foods. They have also been trying lots of new foods; hummus and vegetables and making our own wraps. They have had lots of fun while learning how to keep healthy.
This term, children in Year 4 and Year 2 are trialling the Daily Mile. Every day children will do 15 minutes of non-stop jogging around the school field or playground. The Daily Mile is something that started in Scotland and the benefits to children’s health and wellbeing are being widely reported. It is hoped that it will have a positive impact on the children of IEPS. If successful we will be looking at doing it in more classes next year.
On Tuesday 25th April 2017 Professor Brainstorm came to visit Irlam Endowed Primary School.
Year 1 and Year 2 had great fun watching the ‘Magical Science Experience’. We particularly enjoyed the disappearing water trick. The exploding Pringles containers using liquid nitrogen gave us quite a shock too.
‘Professor Brainstorm put liquid into the Pringle pot. The lid popped off and it really made me laugh’.
Melody Year 2
Year 3 and Year 4 were thrilled to watch the ‘Amazing Sound and Light Show’. The ‘Boomwhackers’ reinforced our learning on sound and pitch from class. We enjoyed learning about optical illusions, especially with Einstein’s face.
‘I liked the sound experiments. Before I watched the show I had made a basic loom band guitar. But after I watched Professor Brainstorm’s experiments I knew how to change the pitch of the strings on my home-made guitar.’
William Year 4
Year 5 and 6 really enjoyed the ‘Fantastic Forces’ show. They were especially pleased to see the famous ‘Tablecloth Trick’ and now know how they can perform this at home. They enjoyed watching the variety of powered rockets, especially the ‘Potato Gun’.
‘I liked how Professor Brainstorm used a tablet to launch a rocket. He added water to a tablet and as they mixed they made a chemical reaction. It produced so much gas that it shot the rocket off’.
Lily-Rose Year 5
After school we invited Nursery and Reception parents and carers to come along and watch the ‘Magical Science Show’ together with their children. We particularly enjoyed watching the effects of immersing bananas and flowers into liquid nitrogen.
It was lovely to see lots of other examples of fun, science activities that parents and carers can enjoy with their children at home.
‘It was a fun and enjoyable way to explore science. My son loved getting involved with the sound experiment.’
