Sungazers 8th June 2020

Good Morning Sungazers! Hope that you are all doing well?

This week we are going to the thinking about Sun Safety – what do we need to do/wear in the sunshine to keep us all safe!

Stay Safe in the Sun - WELCOA

Here are 3 activities to try at home –

  • Read through these posters – can you recognise all of these things to keep us safe in the sun?

  • Suncream Song – have fun learning this song about applying sun cream. It is to the tune ‘1,2,3,4,5, Once I Caught A Fish Alive’.

  • Lastly, here is a cut and stick activity – what would you put in your beach bag?

Sungazers – 1/6/20

It’s June! Hope everyone has been enjoying this wonderful sunshine and is keeping safe!

This weeks task is a cookery one. At the weekend, Mrs Skinner and Mrs  Coulter were busy making ladybird biscuits with their families and thought you would like to join in too – it was great fun!

We have used – digestive biscuits, red icing, icing pens to decorate and any other icing decorations we could find in our cupboards.  Why don’t you have a go too – they were really tasty!


We also have a lovely story about a ladybird. It is called ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ and you can find it on Youtube.


Have a great week!

Science Week Experiments

This week the Sungazers will get the chance to participate actively in lots of different science experiments and activities.  This afternoon we have had great fun trying out 4 experiments – ‘Cornflour Slime’, ‘Balloon Pop’, ‘Make Your Own Volcano’ and ‘Rainbow Milk’.

The pupils all showed a great interest in all of the experiments, paying attention to the steps involved and participating actively when asked to. Balloon Pop  Rainbow Milk  Make your own volcano Cornflour Slime

FAOL Science

The Sungazers have been learning about vibrations and sound waves as part of their science sessions. Mr Dreghorn kindly brought in some fantastic musical instruments for us to explore.

The first was a Theremin which we played using our hands to vary the sound waves. Ryan was a natural and everyone enjoyed using this the best.  We also used an Ottomatone, a Stylophone, a Flexitone and a Tambura…. lots of new sounds for us to explore. We all enjoyed making lots of noise!!!

The boys enjoy using props to dress up as each season and can identify the current season which is winter. After morning group Reece sets up our snack shop and invites his friends one by one to select the correct coins to pay for their snacks.
