The children in the SSC have thoroughly enjoyed learning all about Diwali this week. The children then made their own Diya Lamp, which the children made from clay. They all look amazing! Well done SSC!
As part of our work on Volcanoes, the SSC enjoyed exploring how bicarbonate of soda reacted with a lemon. We added food colouring to represent the lava flowing out of a volcano. The children worked really well with their partner carrying out this experiment. Well done SSC!
The SSC have been enjoying learning about Volcanoes!
This week, we have carried out an underwater Volcanic eruption! The children loved this experiment and they showed great team work skills, listening skills and communication skills. Well done SSC!
Last week, the SSC had a fantastic trip to Tree Tops. We went to Tree Tops as part of our adventures in the community. All the children had the best time!
Today, the SSC enjoyed a hands on experience learning more about Judaism with Mrs Bernstein.
Mrs Bernstein taught us lots about what day to day life is like for Jewish people living in Manchester. She told us about different Jewish traditions and explained how Jewish people worship. We looked at photos of synagogues, explored religious artefacts and tasted some delicious kosher food.
Thank you so much for coming over to the SSC Mrs Bernstein, we really enjoyed our class discussion and have learnt a lot more about the Jewish religion.
Last week, the SSC had a wonderful ‘moment of inspiration’ when Shaun and his team came to visit the class.
Shaun shared some of his fantastic experiences with us describing how he has climbed mountains and completed sky dives around the world.
The SSC had a great insight into Shaun’s life and the changes he has managed to overcome such as recovering from a life changing car accident and the difficulties of becoming an amputee.
As a class, we were inspired by Shaun’s determination and positive attitude and will remember his ‘you can do anything you put your mind to motto’ as a result.
Thank you to Shaun and his team for such an inspiring morning, it is one that we will not forget!
