Investigating Rocks

As part of our rainforest topic, we have been learning about rocks. We examined rocks through sight and touch and talked about similarities and differences. We then found out how rocks are made and the difference between man made and natural rocks. We then went onto find out that natural rocks can be divided into 3 main categories based on how they have been made: igenous, metamorphic and sedimentary.

Caring for our teeth!

We have been learning about our teeth. Today, we learnt about how to care for our teeth. Here are some new facts that we found out:

  • Brush using a circular motion
  • Start at the back of your mouths
  • Plaque can cause tooth decay 
  • We should use a pea sized amount of toothpaste
  • Bleeding is a sign of unhealthy gums

We then took a disclosing tablet which highlights old and new plaque in our mouths. We could all talk about how we are going to improve our oral hygiene!

On Friday, Mrs Busby came in to teach us some art. We learnt how to produce a continuous line drawing. We had 2 rules to follow:

1. We had to fill the page!

2. We were not allowed to take our pencils off the paper.

Performance Poet - Dommy B

Today, we had the pleasure of welcoming famous performance poet, Dommy B, to our school. He started off by sharing some of his own poems in a whole school assembly, before leading workshops with the KS2 classes. 

In our class, we wrote our very own limerick and then performed it in a special sharing assembly.

This week, the whole school has focused our learning around the theme of MONEY. In our class we mind mapped what we know about money, wrote our own Haiku poems about money and then investigated combinations of coins in Numeracy. On Friday, we joined with Reception class to share our learning. We loved hearing what they had been getting upto, and we were astounded with how much they could tell us about money. 

Gymnastics

On a Monday afternoon, we get the special treat of Mrs Tate teaching us P.E. Here are some photographs of us working with the apparatus.

Entry Point: 12.1.18

This morning, our classroom was transformed into a Drs Surgery. We had to complete a body MOT by visiting a range of stations which included:

1. Senses station

2. Sorting healthy and unhealthy foods

3. Pulse investigation with Dr Coughalot and many more. 

We can't wait to get started with our new topic next week!

We have taken part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. We took to the grounds of the school to see what birds we could find!

The Digestive System

In Literacy, we have been reading 'The Journey through the Digestive System!' Following on from this, we practically replicated what happens in our bodies using: a banana (food), bread (food), water (saliva), orange juice (acid), tights (small intestine), tray (body) and a plastic bag (stomach). We learnt lots and had so much fun!!

Human Body Homework Project

ELASTIC QUADRILATERALS

We have been learning about properties of shapes and today we learnt all about quadrilaterals. We went outside to make them using elastic. 

"To change a square to a rectangle only two people need to move to make 2 sides longer." 

"You need to move this way so that our sides are equal." 

"That isn't a rhombus as the sides are not an equal length."

Water Safety - 16.3.18

Sarah came in today to teach us all about the importance of water safety. We learnt how to stay safe in open water, to recognise flags at the beach and how to rescue someone from open water. We learnt how to use a rope to rescue somebody in danger. 

SHOW TIME

On Thursday 22nd March, at 6pm, we performed Treasure Island to a jam packed hall of parents, friends and family. We didn't think we could top the dress rehearsal, but we did! An OUTSTANDING performance by years 3 and 4! Here are some photos of us pre-performance.
