Maths and Science Week

Year 4: Beat the Flood

The children were challenged to Beat the Flood by researching, designing and building a flood proof home.

Lunch time challenge

Building the tallest tower in 10 minutes using only spaghetti and marshmallows!

Year 6 were challenged to collect as much water as possible from the water collection points around the school. They had five minutes. We discussed difficulties then related that to the village of Turkana in Kenya where children have to walk up to 10km to collect drinking water. The children represented data in charts to show how much water they collected then designed a water pump for the children of Turkana.

Day 1 of The Squashed Tomato Challenge

Year 3 Children start to design a method to transport tomatoes down a Himalayan hillside.

Day 3 of The Squashed Tomato Challenge

Today the children are making transportation devices to safely deliver their tomatoes to the market without squashing them.

Museum in a Phone Box

On Wednesday 7th November, Sea Mills School Learning Council helped launch an exciting new history project which will see our local telephone box turned into a mini-museum.  Sea Mills 100 will be holding a number of events with the Sea Mills community over the coming year, the first of which will be a chat and reminisce session in St Edyths Church.  Year 6 are soon to be trained in interview techniques and about local history for this event.  The stories they learn from older local people will be written up and shared online – watch this space for more!

Meeting some Axolotls

Today all children at Sea Mills Primary School got to meet some Axolotls. The amphibians originate from Mexico but are sadly now extinct in the wild. Soon Sea Mills will be getting their very own Axolotl as the own school pet. Why not ask your child about Axoltls as they learned many many facts!

Y5 treated Mrs Randall and Y2 to an amazing concert. The children were conducted by Mr Kinnear who has been taking them for music over the past few weeks.

17.10.18

This morning the whole school had a really informative assembly on Sikhism led by Balbir. Balbir shared key beliefs from Sikhism and brought in several artefacts which she shared with the children.

Wind Instruments 

Miss Thompson played a variety of wind instruments to the children today. She played the flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone and recorder. The children loved listening to the music a the various sounds the wind instruments make.

After half term she will be offering lessons to children. Please look out for the letter.

Diversity Month

Lamchen, a Buddhist nun, visited Sea Mills as part of Diversity Month.  She led the school in a meditation, shared a Buddhist ‘Tanka Tale’ and explained some Buddhist Beliefs.  She visited each class to show some artefacts and was very impressed with the range of questions the children asked.

 

A Capoeira group came to show the whole school their amazing Brazilian gymnastic and rhythmic skills this week.  Year 3 and 4 followed up with workshops learning new music and dance skills. 

 

Mr Randall came and did some Caribbean cooking with children from Y3-Y6 as part of Diversity Month. They spent the afternoon making Jamaican patties. Mr Randall taught them two different cutting methods, the bridge and the claw. He also taught them how to make short crust turmeric pastry which is slightly yellow due to the spice turmeric.

World Record Attempt

On 10th November 2017, we attempted to break the world record for the most amount of people (in one space) dressed as an astronaut. 

Last week, we were amazed to find out that we did in fact break the record with 256 adults and children taking part!!  The staff at Sea Mills worked tirelessly in order to prepare for the event and it would not have been possible without them.  Well done everyone! Thank you also to all the parents who heled and provided costume bits!  We are record breakers!!!

Spanish Day

Sea Mills enjoyed Spanish Day on Wednesday 19th September.  All classes learnt about the rich culture of Spain and practised their Spanish.  Year 3 enjoyed tasting Spanish fruit whilst Reception cooked gazpacho.  It was a fantastic way to relaunch Spanish across the school.  Muy Bien!
