For British Science week, Years 2 and 3 were asked to think about the following questions:

Are slugs important? Are they superheroes or baddies?

First they sorted and learnt some facts about slugs, such as ‘Slugs use slime to help them travel around. It helps them to glide across rough surfaces, even pieces of glass and razor blades!’  We then all headed off to the orchard in the rain to hunt for slugs! We used magnifying glasses to study them and identify some of the different parts, such as, the breathing hole and tentacles.  Finally some of the children acted out a food chain starting with grass being eaten by a slug, the slug is then eaten by a thrush and that in turn is eaten by a top predator, a sparrow hawk.  We discussed and demonstrated what might happen if slug pellets are used and enter the food chain.

By the end of the investigations the children were thinking much more favourably about slugs and were able to understand, that like all living things on our diverse planet, that slugs have an important role to play.

Well done years 2 and 3 for being such super slug scientists!

 

We are delighted to celebrate our wonderful competitors who all took part in the Wadebridge Festival of Music and Speech last week. Each year, competitors are invited to compete in a friendly environment against other students from around the local area. It is a fantastic opportunity for students to perform in another venue but also to receive such helpful feedback from prestigious adjudicators. As you can see, our St Joseph’s students did very well indeed. We are very much looking forward to putting more students forward for classes in this Festival in 2021. Watch this space, and well done for everyone who took part. Missing from the group photo, Rosy, Phoebe, Sophie, Eliza-Jayne and Ruby.
