Class 9

Welcome to Class 9!

Clitheroe Castle

 

On Tuesday 7th March, classes 7, 8 and 9 went on a school trip to Clitheroe Castle. The day was split into two parts with the children taking part in a variety of different activities. The children went around the museum and answered questions, found their way around the labyrinth and ordered a local time line. Then the children walked up to the 'keep' of the castle, made armour to protect 'Sir Egbert' and built a Motte and Bailey, Norman Castle. The children had a fantastic day and really enjoyed themselves.

Melting investigation

 

 The children  melted blocks of ice using different materials to release a piece of Lego frozen in the block. We found that the winning material for melting the ice was the salt.

 Class 9 became archaeologists 

 

  Class 9 found pieces of Ancient Greek artefacts which they surveyed and pieced together. The children then produced a report of their find and explained what they thought the object had been used for by the Greeks.
