In science, we have started our new topic all about rocks! We learnt lots of new tricky words and also had a touch and feel session with some of the rock types. Which kind of rock do you think your house is made from?
May 2019 - Angle Hunt
Some of walked around the school to investigate what angles we could find around our environment. We were looking for right angles but also introduced bigger and smaller - which we now know are obtuse and acute angles!
March 2019: The Fraction Museum
Follow the link below to find out all about how we created our very own museum!
On the 27th February, we all took a trip back in time to the Stone Age! Well, not quite. We travelled to Telford to meet Dan the Caveman who taught us everything he knew about Stone Age people, how they lived, what they ate and what they did for fun! We made fat lamps and cave paintings to bring back with us, which are displayed proudly in our classroom. We all had a fantastic day!
January 2019: What is an equivalent fraction?
Equivalent fractions can be really difficult to explain and understand. This week we began looking at them by cutting out some fraction wheels and comparing the sizes of different parts, to find which ones are equal. Try the question below to see if you know your stuff!
January 2019: A postcard from Paris
This week in geography, we got the opportunity to try some traditional English and French foods such as scones, Victoria sponge cakes, croissants and madeleines. They were delicious! After this, we pretended we had gone on holiday to either London or Paris and wrote a postcard home detailing the cuisine we had experienced! We hope you enjoy reading them.
January 2019: Fractions and number lines
In maths we have been working hard on our topic of fractions. Some of us have found it a little tricky though, so we got out Miss Davies's trusty masking tape and ordered fractions on it! This way was much more fun and we all understand a little better now!
January 2019: Researching a mechanism!
In art we are continuing our topic of London vs. Paris. For this lesson we took some time to research a landmark we wanted to replicate as our mechanism and sketched it out using our shading techniques.
January 2019: Rhythm and rhyme!
We are learning to sing a round of Frère Jacques with Miss Salt, as well as to play it on the bells.
January 2019: Creating suspense in drama!
In English, we are focusing on the story of Paddington bear. However, we are planning for him to get up to some mischief in some of London's most famous landmarks! In one lesson, we rehearsed and performed some short scenes to show how we could create tension and suspense for Paddington.
