Maths - Time

In Maths we have been developing our knowledge of time. We have enjoyed using the clocks to help deepen our knowledge.

 

Aims:

To further develop our understanding of seconds, minutes and hours.
To apply our skills to tell the time to the minute.

Reading

Look at us enjoying our reading books in our lovely reading corner!
 

Literacy - Portal Tales

We have been looking at portal tales and have been using 'The Door' as a model text. Take a look at the story map below, this helps us to retell the story without the text. We have then innovated the story and have stuck post-it-notes on the map with our new ideas!

 

Aim:

To write a portal tale.

Science - Forces and Magnets

In Science we have been learning all about forces and magnets. Did you know that not all metals are magnetic? 

 

Aims:

To notice that magnetic forces can act at a distance and attract some materials and not others by sorting materials.

To compare and group materials according to whether they are magnetic by sorting materials.

Investigating objects to see if they are magnetic or non-magnetic

European Art - Michelangelo

We have been looking at Michelangelo's art work. Michelangelo considered himself to be a sculptor, but agreed to paint the Sistine Chapel for the Pope. He worked for four years, painting upside down on a scaffold in order to finish the painting.

 

Aims:

To improve mastery of art and design techniques, including painting in the context of painting from below.

To learn about great artists, architects and designers in history in the context of Michelangelo.

Design and Technology - Earthquake-resistant buildings

We have been looking at existing structures and and have identified key features that make them earthquake-proof. We then had a task to make a strong, tall structure using marshmallows and spaghetti. We tested the structures to see if they were strong enough and this allowed us to identify ways to make the structures stronger. After this, we designed, made, tested and evaluated our structures.

 

Aim:
To design, make and evaluate an earthquake-resistant building.
