This week we have been calculating perimeter in maths, writing play scripts in English based on the characters in ‘The Wolves in the Walls’, have completed our e-books by adding in a green screen photo of ourselves with a dragon and have continued to enjoy following Hiccup's adventures in How to be Pirate.
We had lots of fun at our Christmas party on Wednesday too!
This week we have used the particle model to explain what happens when a solid (chocolate) is heated. We observed the solid as it was heated and noted the changes. After, we predicted that it would return to being a solid once it had cooled down.
We have begun reading 'The Wolves in the Walls' in English this week. The illustrations are very strange and made some of the hairs on our arms stand up! We're looking forward to finding out what happens if/when the wolves come out of the wolves!
We've researched Hindu places of pilgrimage and found out about the festival of Khumb Mela.
We all thoroughly enjoyed making our Christmas crafts on Tuesday. We had such a lovely day and look forward to inviting parents back in to share this with us next year.
We have enjoyed painting our dragon eyes this week. We’re sure that you will agree that they look fantastic!
We have been learning the particle model in science on Tuesday. We have learnt that all things are made from particles, (matter) and that they all behave in a certain way. We have used different ways to show our understanding of the way that the particles move in solids, liquids and gases: using cubes, our hands and our entire bodies!
On Tuesday, we were very lucky to have Mr Hughes from Gem Education teach us a lesson on how to use the 'green screen' app. We transported ourselves back in time to become Romans! As you can see, we make for a very fierce Roman legion! Everyone worked brilliantly during this lesson - well done!
We have had another enjoyable week - it has flown by! We've continued to work on adding three and four-digit numbers using place value knowledge and a column method. Some of us used counters to support our learning. In computing, we have begun to build an e-book all about our class novel, How to Train your Dragon. So far, we have created a front cover.
In English, we have focused on description: using adjectives, verbs, adverbs and similes in our writing. We have planned an alternative chapter, which we're looking forward to writing next week.
Our art lesson focused on using different techniques to manipulate plasticine. We used rolling, smoothing, pinching and pulling to create different shapes before using tools to carve details or create holes or hollows.
Welcome back everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your well deserved break. This week we have moved on to addition and subtraction in maths. I have been impressed by everyone using their place value knowledge to help calculate four-digit numbers + four-digit numbers. In RE, we have been thinking about what Christians would need when studying the Bible and in our digital literacy lesson we have discussed posting pictures on social media without someone's consent.
