LKS2 – all about the Greeks!
On Wednesday 20th November, Year 3 and Year 4 went on a trip to Newcastle.
We travelled in a really posh coach from Peterlee into Newcastle, crossing over the River Tyne. We first of all visited the Great North Museum (Hancock), to see their Ancient Greek artefacts collection and we even had time to look around some of the other fascinating displays.
After leaving the museum, we walked down Northumberland Street to the restaurant. We had an opportunity to see all the Christmas stalls and even had a quick peek at Fenwicks window.
For lunch, we stopped at a restaurant called Simply Greek on the Bigg Market. As there were so many of us, we practically filled the whole restaurant. At the restaurant, we all tried some delicious Greek food – hummus, fresh bread, chicken pasta and meatballs.
Have a look at some of our picture memories from the day.
We all had a fantastic time!
Year 4 Destination Judo (11/12th September 2019)
On the 11th and 12th of September, Destination Judo came to show the children of Seascape more Judo skills. Each class had an masterclass for 30minutes, where they learnt lots of fantastic Judo moves. The children also all received a voucher to attend a judo session for free. Watch this space, as you never know, we might have some future judo stars right before our very eyes.
OPAL EXPLORERS! (5th April 2019)
Today was a wonderful day packed full of fun and exploration, especially because we had some of our amazing parents that came and joined in the fun with us.
We started off the day with a scavenger hunt around the school grounds. Then, we tried doing some outdoor art by finding different leaves and making patterns with the different shapes and colours using a needle and thread. After that we hung them on the trees around school.
Next, we made some fantastic shelters out of things we found on the field. Finally, we toasted some marshmallows around the fire pit and made some delicious s’mores.
It was such a gorgeous morning and I’d like to say a massive thank you to all the parents who joined us for their super attitude, support and team work. The children loved it and we hope to have many more special events like this in the future!
Class 8 Oriental Museum Visit (March 2019)
On Monday 25th March, Class 8 had the opportunity to visit the Oriental Museum in Durham. It was a fantastic day where we all learned how place can affect art.
We started off by looking at different places around the world and the type of artefacts that can be found. Then, we documented our own artefacts by drawing, measuring and writing about what we thought they were and what they might have been used for.
After that, we did some drama activities where we got to dress up in costumes and act out an old Japanese story about how Mount Fuji was created. Finally, we took everything we had learnt and seen from the day and used it to help us make a wonderful sculpture which included light.
As you can clearly see we had an amazing day!
STEM – Homemade Bath Fizzes
On Friday 8th February, Year 6 had a go at making their own homemade bath fizzes.
This helped them understand the scientific idea of changing states.
The ingredients used were: bicarbonate of soda, lemon juice, coconut oil, lavender scent and some food colouring.
After carefully mixing the ingredients together and pressing them into shape we ended up with some wonderful creations.
The children all had a brilliant time getting messy making the bath fizzes, and can’t wait to test them out when they have dried out fully.
Check out some of our pictures.
STEM – lemon and potato lights
As part of the enrichment activities, on Friday 25th January, Year 4 children had a go at trying to make a light bulb work through the power of only lemons and potatoes. All they had to make this magic happen were some copper coins, some zinc nails and some wires. After watching a quick demonstration video to see how this could be done, the children had a go at trying to connect the wires to make the light bulbs. Sadly, we didn’t manage to make them glow for very long, but they all had fantastic fun.
The children are convinced that next time we try this, they will be super engineers.
