Mrs Hanigan’s Blog – 28.6.17.

 

Imagine my surprise when I arrived at school on Tuesday morning to see two very large parcels with my name on, sitting waiting in my room. If you keep up to date with the Facebook page, you will know that we won a national competition about the ‘Where’s Wally’…

Amazing Video!

It has been such an interesting week this week. We have been continuing our work on camouflage and I have learned many new things myself. The children tried to answer the questions they had thought of about camouflage and for a great number of them, this included looking at how humans use…

Map Your Mind

We’re back again for the final half-term of the school year and it looked for a while like someone had stolen Summer! Never to be defeated, we had a fantastic time at Blackpool Zoo on Tuesday and the rain managed to stay away for most of the day. The children were amazing and asked some great…

Whatever the weather, we're here for you!

 

Another fun-filled week-and a busy one at that! The weather couldn’t decide what to do, but luckily, Miss Ellison knew exactly what was going to happen. All of the children in Rainbow Class have worked hard in their little quizzes and it was good to work with a small number of the children in…

It's been another very busy week for Mrs Hanigan's groups. We made our home-made magnetic compasses this week (and one day, very soon, Mrs Hanigan will get the hang of modern technology and will up load the photos!) We followed our designs carefully and then tested their accuracy against the…
