Sapphire Summary of Learning Spring 2019/docs/Sapphire_2019/Sapphire_Summary_Spring_2019.pdf


Welcome to Sapphire Class 2018-19

We have already been in school for two weeks and everyone has settled into Upper Juniors. We are busy learning about our Solar system and have been very active, making papier mache planets and creating our own versions of van Gogh's Starry Nights. Pictures to follow...



The children have taken part in many practical activities to help understand the different areas of science. When learning about the planet system and how Earth and other planets revolve around the sun, we made models and used objects to show the scale of the different planets.


We also have been investigating which solids dissolve in water to make a solution. 



We have been creating some wonderful pictures, inspired by the work of Van Gogh. We used chalk pastels and/or oil pastels to create the effects that we wanted.
