Components Of Blood.

 

 

On Friday, we did an exciting experiment to find out what makes up blood. Blood contains: 55% plasma, less than 1% white blood cells and platelets, 45% red blood cells.

 

Did you know?

When you are sick your body produces more white blood cells to fight the bacteria.

 

This is us doing our experiment

Book Week 
This Is Me!

Week commencing 24th January 2022

On Monday, in Maths we started looking at equivalent fractions and how to make sure we did the same to the denominator as we did to the numerator to make the fractions equivalent.

 

Eg 3/4 = 6/8

 

Our Maths topic was shapes on Thursday, we looked at polygons and different triangles and their properties. Did you know that a scalene triangle has sides that are all different lengths?

 

In English we continued writing our persuasive pitch about plastic pollution in the ocean. We got stuck in thinking about the impact of this on our precious planet.

Our word of the week this week is ravenous, who has used it in their writing?

 

In RE on Tuesday afternoon we were learning about 'What Jesus would do?' if he lived with us now!

We played xylophones in music to find the beat to the song of ‘Do what you wanna’.

Wednesday, we did a huge art project about Inuit art, we did print and stencilling with ink and paint after making our own frozen kingdom stencils, it was very enjoyable. We love thinking what life is like outside our own communities.

 

PE was amazing on Thursday afternoon; we played a hockey match where we learned new tackling skills with a final score of 11-6. It got very competitive! We have learned building on our skills in order to play a game.

English

In English, we have been working on our plastic pollution persuasive pitch (that’s a lot of alliteration). We found out by 2050, there might be more plastic in our oceans than fish if we don’t make a drastic change. This is something we feel passionate about and we want to fight for a change.

Science

How do Polar Bears keep warm in the Arctic circle?

 We investigated this question on Friday, by setting up an experiment. See the pictures below to see what a great time we had whilst putting our exploration skills to the test.

Week commencing 10th January 2022

This week has been hectic. We started our field hockey P.E. sessions with Excel Sports. For many it was their first experience, for others they extended their skills. We first learnt how to control the ball with different touches and dribbles. We found this extremely fun! We hope to challenge ourselves to take part in a competitive match by the end of the half-term.

Week commencing 5th January 2022

What a fantastic start to the New Year we have had! We have begun our new project, ‘Frozen Kingdoms’, and have learnt about lines of latitude and longitude and the location of the polar regions. Then we planned an expedition to either the Arctic Circle or the Antarctic Circle - the weather was perfectly timed as we had snow to help us with the authenticity of our voyage! We thought about the landscape, the vegetation, the animals and the climate we might experience and researched these areas before creating a video log of our journey. We have also developed our knowledge of Inuit art, including some significant artists and the influences on their work, before creating some of our designs for a sculpture. We worked incredibly carefully to carve our ‘soapintine’ sculptures and are very proud of our work!
