This week Thames Class enjoyed sharing their experiences at PGL Liddington with the rest of the school and their parents, particularly their favourite memory. They produced some fantastic models and PowerPoint's as part of their assembly.
Thames Class had a fantastic time on their residential. Here are a few showing you what they got up to during their time away.
Thames Class thoroughly enjoyed a badminton taster session today with Jamie Cackett from Community Badminton Oxfordshire.
Well done Thames Class for a brilliant SATs week! You showed the Appleton Animal Attitudes all week! You were determined, resilient, took responsibility and worked together to ensure you could all achieve the best! Thames Class finished the week with some well deserved treats which included watching a film, ice creams, popcorn and a trip to the park!
We hope all your parents are as proud of you as we are! Well done and enjoy a earned break over the weekend!
This term in Thames Class have been learning about the role of the circulatory system in the human body. To help us understand how nutrients and water are transported around the body we carried out several different mini investigations.
The first investigation involved putting Skittles on a plates with some water and observing what happened, this helped us understand that nutrients are absorbed through the walls of our intestines into the blood.
We also placed cola bottles in petri dishes with water for 24 hours and after this period they had almost doubled in size. This helped us understand that water doesn’t need breaking down and moves between membranes in the body to arrive in the correct place.
We also created a piece of art that reflects the processes involved in the journey of our food and water into the blood stream and to the various parts of our body by taking ‘prints’ using circles of paper placed onto the surface at regular intervals of our gelatin and food colouring investigation.
