Today we looked at various different books by Eric Carle. We looked at the way that he creates different animal collages. We focused on the book ‘1, 2, 3, Zoo’ and looked at the lion collage. We then created our own lion collages inspired by Eric Carle’s lion.
Our Outdoor Learning
Class 1 have had a great start to the New Year, we are thoroughly enjoying learning in our outdoor areas. This week we have been looking at 2D shapes and explored how the wind affects different materials - it's been great fun!
Exciting English descriptive writing
Class 4 are thoroughly enjoying our new English novel ‘Beowulf’ and have become engrossed in the characters, plot and beasts! This week we have launched straight back into our descriptive writing and have produced 2 quality pieces.
The first was a…
Vicious Vikings…or were they?
In our Science lesson this week, we were required to help prove a scientist’s belief that the Vikings have been misunderstood and misrepresented as a primitive civilisation.
We examined how the Vikings used science to make food much more edible, nutritious and…
This year, we decided to make our own Christmas crackers and hats - as well as reducing our plastic waste, it was a lot of fun!
African Kente Cloth
As part of our history topic, Africa, we have been looking at Kente Cloths - they are traditionally made from thin strips that are woven together on narrow looms. We made ours using card, paint, wool and glue. Don't they look fantastic?
Reversible/Irreversible changes and Soda Bread!
Class 4 have been at it again. As scientists, we have been investigating what happens to objects when they are heated. We looked at the following objects and described what would happen to each if it was heated and cooled, and whether or not…
Irreversible Changes and Chemical Reactions
Today we were investigating some irreversible changes by mixing different materials together. We created different mixtures and observed what happened as a chemical reaction took place and a new product was made.
We mixed together: vinegar and…
After reading the opening of our book. Journey to Jo'burg, we story-mapped using the information given so far and our inference skills. We looked at the location of the places in the story and mapped them, we discussed and gave reasons for our choices.
Members of Class 4 have been busy completing their optional homework tasks this half term and they are too good not to share! Take a look at some of these amazing creations! I certainly wouldn't like to be at the receiving end of any of these punishments!
This week, Class 4 have been investigating different ways of separating materials. Take a closer look at our experiments. We used a sieve, colander, garden sieve, magnets, funnel and filter paper. We also recognised that certain solids (soluble) would require…
Class 4 have been investigating dissolving and last week, completed an experiment to discover which solids dissolve when mixed with a liquid. They planned, prepared and predicted before conducting the experiment and finding a conclusion. The children had lots of fun in the…
