Summer Term

This half term our topic is  Creepy Crawlies 

We visited the nature garden to look at insects and find out which habitats they prefer…..

Then set up a wormery in class…

and made prints of insects.

In literacy we read How Anansi Got The Stories and made spider webs.

Whilst working on James And The Giant Peach we used all of our senses to investigate peaches.

We used drama to explore the characters and the reasons for their actions.

In science we looked at the diet of different animals……

How our skeleton and muscles work…..

and tested our reaction times.

During Science Week we made  Whizzy Washing-up Liquid Boats and won!

It was a lot of fun and made us ask a lot of scientific questions.

We have a room with a new ceiling, new blinds, a new book corner and a new Smartboard! Lucky us!

This half term our topic is Ancient Egyptians and our science focus is Magnets and Forces

We have been finding out about the Egyptian Gods.Their exotic headgear shows their status.

We worked together to paint large pictures of the Gods.

 The results look great!

We are learning how to use headings and sub-headings in our non-fiction writing. First step , sort the information into categories .Working in a group helps!

In science we learnt how to use a Newton meter to measure force.

Then we looked for a way to move a tub,keeping the force used the same each time, so the test will be fair.

 

It was great fun investigating how far the tub moved on different surfaces!

Well done to everyone for your fantastic Egyptians Homework!

We planted seeds , watered them and waited for them to grow.

We tested to see which root shape took in the most water and the effect of light and water on rates of growth.

We turned a carnation blue to examine the function of the stem.

We made a timeline to show the events in the Queen’s life , painted portraits of famous Kings and Queens and made our own crowns.
