Our awesome author visit

Today, Edward Traynor whose pen name is Billy Bob Button, delivered a fascinating workshop on how to write a best selling book. He described how the reader is his starting point; that each of his books have 5 sections and that he uses adjectives, verbs and adverbs to give music to his writing.

Amy wanted to know who his idol was- a left handed tennis player! Molly wanted to know which was his first book- Wizards Bookshop. We also learned about his many notebooks in which he keeps lists and drawings of hats, doors and monsters.

Today the Herons and the Eagles joined together in the 'Houses of Parliament' for a debate. They learnt how to share and to listen to each other's views respectfully. They were opportunities to change minds and offer alternative view points.  At the end, the speaker of the house held a democratic vote to come to a conclusion. The children learnt that they will not all end with the same opinions, but need to 'disagree well' and accept the majority outcome.

People’s Book Prize Winner Visits School

The award-winning, bestselling children’s author, Billy Bob Buttons, will be visiting this school on the AFTERNOON of Tuesday 4th December.                        

He is the author of sixteen very popular children’s books including Felicity Brady and the Wizard’s Bookshop, the bestselling Muffin Monster, Tiffany Sparrow Spook Slayer, The Cool Kids Book Prize winner, WIDE AWAKE, and the UK People’s Book Prize winner and bestseller, I think I Murdered Miss. Last year, this book sold over 40,000 in the UK alone and won the 2014 UK People’s Book Prize.

Every year, he meets with approx. 50,000 primary school children to deliver his popular literacy workshops. Throughout the afternoon, he will be delivering the workshops to the Herons and the Eagles focusing on Planning a Story, Adventure Writing and Characters. 

There are a selection of his books in our library right now!

Dear Herons and Eagles. We have an exciting opportunity for you to follow your interests and explore our World War Two topic further. See the attached flyer!

Herons and Eagles visit to Eden Camp - We have seen all sorts today to bring our WW2 topic to life; miniature worlds in a light bulb made by a prisoner of war; lampposts which were white but painted black on the first day of the war; the Queen working with the engineers and unexploded bombs.

Science - Today we continued our topic on forces, focussing on air resistance. The children were asked to design and test their own parachutes to investigate the force of air resistance. The children also learned about Galileo’s famous experiment at the Tower of Pisa, and we looked at what this teaches us about air resistance. Finally, the children had lots of fun testing their parachutes outside to find out which parachute fell to the ground the slowest. The children found out that the larger the parachute, the slower the fall.

WW2 spitfires - we had lots of fun making spitfires and then seeing if they would fly outside!

Don’t forget to return your Eden Camp letter! Also, please note that we have changed the date of the visit to Thursday 16th October. This will enable the swimmers to take part in the grand final at Harrogate Hydro on Tuesday 16th October. 

Forces - Today we have been measuring the weight and mass of different objects. We discovered that gravity pulls objects down with a force of approximately 1N for every 100g. So if an object weighed 1kg, gravity will pull it down with a force of 10N.
