Stem Week 2017

 

For Stem Week, Year 5 focused on Volcanoes, linking to the topic of 'Change'.  Throughout the week, we looked at various volcanoes around the world, studying their formation, their activity and the causes of these.  The week culminated with an experiment based on chemical reactions, where they erupted the volcanoes they had created in groups.  What a fun week we had!

Anti Bullying Week 2016

During Anti-Bullying week, Palm Class decided to recreate Mrs Dunne's fantastic video from 2012. Her Year 6 class came up with all the words themselves and it was only fitting to bring it back to life with a new class at Downderry!
