BBC 1 North West Tonight Plod for Pudsey

Some of our children met BBC presenters on Monday night, saw how a live broadcast was done and met Pudsey himself. Presenters arrived at the Laurel and Harvey Museum, having walked from Walney as part of their Plod for Pudsey, raising money for Children In Need.

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Last Tuesday STEM ambassadors, Tom Cox and Mark Spencer from Siemens,  came to visit Year 3. We have been learning about light. The students had a great time investigating how light can be used  to communicate with Morse Code, how sunscreen protects against UV light and how a glass rod can simply ‘disappear’.

Manchester trip Part 2

Year 3 and Year 5 were in Manchester on Wednesday.

Both classes went to The Palace Theatre to watch Matilda and visited The Science Museum. Year 5 visited all areas of the museum and were fortunate to be in The Power Hall in time for a demonstration.

Year 3 also managed to visit The Jewish Museum as part of their RE studies.

We would like to thank our 7 helpers who made this trip possible. It is much appreciated.

We would also like to thank the children for representing SJB so well. All staff agreed that you were a pleasure to take to Manchester.
