Hello everyone and welcome back to Term 4 , we hope you have all had a really lovely break over the half term. This term we are travelling south and stopping off in Kenya! We will learn all about the geographical features and the animals that live there. We will also be visiting Marwell zoo - please keep a look out for more information! As always, keep checking our page for all our exciting learning we will be doing over the term.
We then used our fire creations in our writing lessons and created an adjective word bank to describe a hot, burning fire!
We had a wonderful afternoon creating our own flames using paint! We learnt new skills to create the fire - we put some paint on the page and then used a straw to blow the paint to make the flickering flames. We also put paint on the page and then dragged the paint upwards with our brush to create the effect of moving flames. We used orange, red and yellow.
For our D.T project this term we are making London transport and today we chose our material to start making our chosen vehicle. We then started to paint them to make them look like London buses, taxis and the tube. For our next lesson, we will be adding the wheels and will be racing them against each other.
In our science lesson this week, we looked at flowers and what they need to stay alive. We knew they needed water to stay alive and that they drink it, so we thought we could put food colouring into the water to see what happens to the white flowers. The petals started as white and when we came to school the next day they were blue! They had sucked up the blue water! Have a look at our photos of our new blue flowers!
Today we used a compass and programed our BeeBots to explore all the London landmarks! Last week in our Geography lesson, we learnt all about the landmarks that you can find in London and we used our knowledge to help our BeetBot explore! It was so much fun!! We also wrote out the algorithm we needed using the vocabulary North, South, East and West.
We had such an amazing day for skilful day and learnt so many new skills as well as practised some we could already do! We learnt how to tie show laces, did a little bit of sewing, wrapped up presents, learnt how to map read, had a go at may pole dancing and even made a smoothie! It was so fun and the children had a wonderful time!
For our writing this week we have been learning about instructions and how to follow them and then write them using time conjunctions. We read a book about how to trap a dragon and then followed the instructions to see if we could trap it! The instructions were:
First dig a hole using a magical spade.
Next, cover the hole with a blanket and cover the blanket in sticks and leaves.
Then place a lump of tasty meat on the sticks and leaves to lure the dragon.
Finally, hide somewhere and wait for the dragon to eat the meal and fall down the hole!
The children were so excited to choose their own book from the bookshelf this week as you can see by their happy faces! This books can be changed every Friday and are there to be shared with the family, we hope you all enjoy reading them at home.
We have been learning how to add 1 digit numbers together and using our number bonds to 10 to help us calculate efficiently and quickly in our heads. We have been using 10 frames to help us visualise the numbers and support our learning.
In our science lessons we have been learning about materials. This week we looked at different materials and whether they can change shape. The children experimented with a variety of materials and tested to see if it could be squashed, twisted or stretched.
We went on a lovely wonder walk and thought about creation. We discussed how Christians believe that God created the world so we walked around our beautiful grounds and found things that God created. We then welcomed The Bridge Project into our classroom and we did some really exciting activities all about God the creator.
Here the children are thinking of a variety of different adjectives to use in their settings writing. They thought of so many different describing words which are now hanging in our classroom for everyone to use.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
