This term we've really enjoyed our boxecise classes. We have really perfected our superhero moves!!
In our grammar lesson this week, we have been learning about how conjunctions can be used to join clauses to make more complex sentences. We have also learned that conjunctions can be used to describe place, time and cause.
Within the lesson we were writing sentences using conjunctions and some of us chose to write them about superheroes and magic!
Weeks 4 and 5 - Religious Education
In Religious Education we have started our Being Human topic based on Christianity.
During weeks 4 and 5, we have been reading and listening to parables from the Bible.
The first two parables were The Good Samaritan and The Wiseman and the Foolish man. We carried out comprehension activities to further our knowledge, using Retrieval and Inference skills, and we are looking forward to reading more in the next few weeks.
Week 4 Science
We've had another exciting week in Science this week. We carried out an investigation on pitch. Mrs Naghen gave us three water bottles, spoons and water and in groups we had to create three different pitches. We realised that the volume of water in the bottles changed the pitch of the sound as the spoon hit the bottle. Some of us even attempted five bottles and tried to play a tune!
We then explored musical instruments and investigated how high and low pitches were created.
Week 3 Science
In science this week we have been learning about how sound travels through the air onto the ear. We sequenced pictures to show the steps and matched captions. We labelled the parts of the ear and then did some research on how sound reaches the brain.
We then investigated. We were given rice, a metal pan, a bowl and some cling film. Our task was that we had to make the rice move without touching what it is on or in.
In the end we realised that we could move it by creating sound vibrations. The sound had to be loud to make the vibrations give energy to the particles in the air so that the bowl and rice moved. It was a very noisy lesson!!
