On Tuesday we had a very exciting and special visitor come into our school. The Lord Mayor came to Charlestown to give a motivational talk to our year six children. With a very important few weeks ahead of the year 6 children, it was very valuable for them to be able to find out about his amazing journey and ask him questions about his life. The Lord Mayor had lunch with the rest of the school, which was very exciting!
Today Charlestown’s school council went to visit Manchester Town Hall!
What an amazing experience it was!
We met the Lord Mayor who was extremely kind and a very interesting person to meet! He took us for a tour around his chambers and sat with us for tea and biscuits while we asked him questions and he asked us some questions about what our school council does!
What a fantastic afternoon looking at the year 6’s science demonstrations we have had!
I can really tell that you have been practicing your scientific language! You really pushed Team 10 into justifying their predictions and explaining the results!
It was great to see! We all loved it!
Thank you and well done!
This afternoon Team 10 became Charlestown’s very own ice-cream men/ women!
We wanted to find out whether the amount of salt added to ice would affect the time it took for the ice-cream mixture to freeze!
For the first time for all of us, we made ice-cream in a bag! Easy to do and very quick, you could definitely do it at home!
This week we had a very interesting and important assembly from Matt!
It was all about being safe and not going onto train tracks!
For the next few weeks Matt will be coming into class to do lots of different activities with us!
We have been studying ‘Going Global’ in our IPC lessons which is all about fair trade!
Team 10 were able to put their artistic skills to use by practicing weaving!
At Charlestown we have been taking part in the BBC Terrific Scientific live lessons and experiments!
Last week, we tested to find out whether we were non-tasters, tasters or super-tasters!
Firstly, we painted our tongues with food dye and then counted the amount of fungiform papillae (pink bumps) on our tongues! The more pink bumps you have the more of a taster you are!
