Buster's Book Club is launched for 2021!

What is Buster’s Book Club? Buster’s Book Club has been designed to support and encourage children to read for enjoyment, outside of the school environment. Children are encouraged to read anything they choose: fiction; non-fiction; comics; picture books; graphic novels etc and their ‘reading minutes’ at home are counted on a Wednesday night each week. In addition, we count minutes when children are read to and with by adults/siblings and also if they listen to audio books as we recognise that this can support language development and may be more appropriate for some pupils. Children are provided with a bookmark where they, or their parent/carer, record the total number of ‘reading’ minutes. We ask that a parent or carer initials the bookmark to confirm this has taken place. Children have the chance to become ‘Star Reader of the Week’ where they will receive a badge. They also have the chance of contribute to their class becoming the ‘Reading Class of the Week’. Inter-school competitions are run regularly to award prizes to schools – for improvement as well as number of minutes read. Prizes have previously included: · visits from celebrity story tellers and actors for a story time in assembly · a visit from an Olympic athlete · visits from organisations such as Joe’s Bows; Creepy Claws and Kickstart Sports · book bundles and class resources Whether a child reads for five minutes or two hours – all reading minutes are counted. #everyminutecounts #doyourbest

Super Science

Our Super Scientists from Year 6 (in the Critical Worker Bubble) completed a science experiment on 3rd February.    Each scientist write there own recount of the experiment and their observations:   This is a cool experiment we did on the 3rd of February with skittles. This demonstrates osmosis.  Osmosis happens in liquid it start for a high concentrated area to a low concentrated area. I poured water on skittles waited a few minutes. Then we start to see the colour moved from the skittles (high concentrated area) to everywhere else (the low concentrated area). Diffusion happens in a gases. Diffusion is where the particles move all around the room the same as osmosis (high concentrated area to a low concentrated area). For example, if you have a slice of cake the particles around the cake are move from a high concentrated area to a low concentrated area though diffusion. By Elouise in 6A   What we did for science on the 3rd of February was amazing because we did an experiment with skittles to show osmosis. This experiment show how the colour moves form a high concentrated area (my skittles) to a low concentrated area (the empty plate). This represents how the osmosis happens in the liquid and makes the colour of the skittles move in a pattern the colour on the plate. Osmosis happens in a liquid. Diffusion happens in different gases. Diffusion is similar to osmosis as the particles travel from a high concentrated area to a low concentrated area. For example, when you spray deodorant from a can the gas enters the environment (high concentrated area) and spreads around the room (low concentrated area) until the gases is distributed out equally/evenly.   By Mason 6B
