Premier League Draw Together

Premier League Primary Stars is inviting children aged 5 to 11 across England and Wales to take part in a brand new art challenge in support of the Premier League’s No Room For Racism initiative.

We created a piece of artwork expressing what allyship and inclusion means to us.

Have a look at some of our entries.

English

We have been writing a character description of Jim from the novel ‘Street Child’ written by Berlie Doherty.

We wrote about his appearance, his past and his behaviour.

Design and Technology

We have been designing a moving product containing a cam mechanism. We learnt about the different types of cams and how the shapes of these affect the movement.

From these designs, we have created and tested out our own product

Can you guess which themes we chose?

Pyjamarama

On Friday, we celebrated ‘Pyjamarama’ day which is all about getting children excited about reading.

Staff and children in schools and nurseries across the country wore pyjamas all day to raise money to make sure that every child gets a bedtime story.

Science

Following on from our science lesson last week, we have been identifying the effects of friction that acts between moving surfaces.

We tested different types of shoes and used a force meter to measure the amount of friction between the shoes and surface.

We predicted which shoe we thought would have the most friction and gave our reasons why.

Take a look at our results.

Science

This week during our science lesson, we explored the effects of air resistance. We tested and identified the effects of air resistance between a moving surface.

One of our activities involved dropping two pieces of paper where only one was scrunched up whilst we observed and compared their descent. We learnt that air resistance is the force that air exerts against a moving object, in our case the paper.

In our main activity ‘Falling Cupcake Cases’, we created a scientific plan based on our question ‘ Do bigger cupcake cases fall faster than smaller ones?’

RE

In our RE lessons, we have been discussing whether or not our actions have consequences and have also been exploring whether beliefs in karma help Hindus lead good lives. We have also begun to understand the impact of certain beliefs on a Hindu’s life.

We talked about the game of snakes and ladders and learnt that it originated in Ancient India from Hinduism. The snakes and ladders represent good and bad decisions that we make and the impact they have when we make them.

As this game was about karma, we devised our own board game based on the idea of positive and negative karma.
