Welcome to St Edward!
Our teacher is Mrs Turner. Have a look at the amazing things we have been doing!
The idea was to get the children outside to learn whilst enjoying the beautiful world that God has created for us. We had some worries about the weather however, although it was cold, the sun shone and the children had an amazing day, taking part in a range of activities chosen to make the most of the grounds we have at the school.
In Key Stage 2 we started our day with a Nature Quiz around the field, where we had to identify plants, trees and animals commonly found in the British countryside. We also tried our hand at some natural materials art, inspired by Andy Goldsworthy. We had a great time and even managed to plant some bulbs around the school- we can't wait to see them bloom in Spring!
We have been learning to set up simple practical enquiries, comparative and fair tests by setting up an enquiry or test to understand what causes tooth decay. We placed hard boiled eggs into water, milk, orange juice or coca cola. The egg shells showed us what these drinks do to our teeth. We looked at them once a day for a week and recorded what changes took place. Look at the photos for the results. Some of us have decided not to drink coca cola or orange juice as much and always brush our teeth afterwards!
