This week we have been focusing on our scientific enquiry skills and investigating thermal insulators. We even used some data loggers to record our data!
We also looked at risks, hazards and dangers in PSHE and learnt how to say different family members in French.
The Year 4s had a great trip to Southwell Minster and then we all looked at the wonderful book 'The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse' and learnt how to 'read' a picture!
However, I think we can all agree that the best part of the week was our unexpected snow day! It was great to recieve so many pictures of you enjoying the snow.
This week we returned from half term and got stuck straight into some of our new projects. In English we started exploring the features and ‘shapes’ of non-chronological reports, ready to begin writing our class report on earthquakes. We explored the Ring of Fire in Geography, developed more of our coding skills in Computing and counted to 100 in French. We also started our Keeping Healthy project in PSHE by becoming trained first aiders! Have a look at some photos below.
We are looking forward to Book Week next week!
What a busy half term we have had!
LKS2 have been exploring ammonites as part of our art project. They explored the texture of the ammonites and experimented with using different techniques to draw their own. They then used their sketches to work on the printing element of their project. They created a colour wash and then used string to create a printing block. They decided on two different colours to create their amazing final pieces. Year 3/4 have also explored different rocks and soils in science. They enjoyed testing how durable they were and if they were permeable or impermeable. At the end of the project they looked at soil formation and even created their own mini- compost bins! Their music project was another highlight this half term - 'Composing Using Our Imaginations'. The children have done so much; listening, singing, playing, composing and performing (it's been like a music festival!). Finally, they paired up and used software from Charanga to create their own overlay to play over the song 'Your Imagination' and even played one another's compositions!
