We had a brilliant time at our WOW Event this afternoon, showing the grown-ups our Andy Warhol projects and sharing all of our project learning from this term. Thank you to everyone who joined us. For anyone hoping to see photographs of their children's artwork, due to a technical difficulty the photographs cannot be uploaded this evening and will hopefully be on this page tomorrow! Sorry for the delay.

Week 6

 

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!

Week 5 Chinese

Week 5 Chinese 1
Having already looked at basic greetings and counting to three, Meta taught us to count to 10 in Chinese! We picked it up really quickly and were keen to share our ideas about what we'd like to learn next!

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 French

Week 4 French 2
In French, we have been learning the names of colours and using these to label the Avengers! We then learned how to use these in a noun phrase, spotting that in French, the adjective is placed after the noun. 

​​​​​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.

We have been busy creating the initial sketches, ready for our Andy Warhol-inspired Pop Art creations. We created these by copying existing pictures section-by-section so that we didn't have to concentrate on the whole picture in one go. Watch this space for the next step next week!

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!!

We’ve really been enjoying exploring a range of Maths apparatus and representing problems in different ways as part of our new ‘Maths - No Problem!’ scheme. Already, we’re showing our working in different ways to each other and selecting our own way to approach the problem. A great start!
