Messy Science: Digestion
Taking inspiration from artist Laura Slade, we have started our own watercolour paintings this week. This is going to be a long process as we discovered through experimenting early in the week that the best way to create texture with watercolours is to let each layer dry before adding another. We have chosen a continent to focus on in groups for our WOW event so the animals being painted here are naturally found on that continent. Finished artwork will be on display when you arrive for your GBA Airlines flight in a few weeks!
Watch this space!
We are planning our WOW event this week! These are the things we know we need to include:
We will be using our Geography knowledge in order to locate continents and countries around the world. Our Science knowledge is also going to be vital for talking about the different types of animal groups, species and habitats in those locations.
On top of all of this, there will also be Literacy, Art and other subjects being used in order to provide a well-rounded display and presentation for Parents and relatives on the day!
As well as reading, writing and recognising the place value of digits in large numbers, the children have been using these place value sheets to make numbers 10, 100 and 1,000 times bigger. We've also been practising using mathematical vocabulary to explain what has happened.
E.g. When multiplying 15.16 by 10, Jaden was able to say that each digit is now worth 10 times more than it was before. So 1 ten becomes 1 hundred, 5 ones become 5 tens and so on...
Multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1,000
In a series of quick-fire questions, the children had to pick the largest measurement out of two, using prior knowledge of measurement and their recent work on multiplying and dividing by multiples of 10!
P.E. - taking inspiration from the animal world!
We talked about different animals and the way that they moved, before attempting to replicate this in our own movements and sequences. See if you can guess which animals these photographs show!
