We have been exploring 6 digit numbers using place value discs!
We have been very lucky to have an Art Teacher from St. Edmund Arrowsmith High School to do a unit of work with us and specialist teaching.
We have been doing Self portraits and moving onto using collage with magazines.
This week we carried out an investigation to test different materials to investigate does the type of material effect how quickly liquid cools? We wrapped mugs in different materials and poured in boiling water. We used thermometers to measure the temperature before and after ten minutes.
We have been studying the Dutch artist Vincent’s Van Gogh. We loved his painting of ‘Starry Night’ so much that we wanted to create our own. Take a look at some of our beautiful interpretations.
This week we began our new English text ‘Henry’s Freedom Box’ about a young slave in American during the slave trade who mailed himself to freedom in a 3ft x 2ft box!
We had the box in our classroom and thought of what it may be and what it was?
Today we held our very first Zoom assembly with Miss Evans! We heard all about the star pupils, dojo winners and wished all this weeks birthday children a happy birthday!
This will go down in history and we were there!
We have been reading ‘Here We Are’ story by Oliver Jeffers all about our huge and busy but incredible planet! We wrote our own Earth shape list poems to explain all of the wonderful we have to experience on Earth!
We tried hard to use a range of adverbs and adjectives to write descriptively! Have a read of our beautiful writing!
In PE we have been aiming to increase our fitness levels in some circuit training! We worked around each station doing press ups, stomach crunches, step ups and many more! It was tiring but we felt so energised and happy from it!
We have just begun our new art topic of Self portraits! This half term we will be looking at the self portraits of the famous artist Vincent Van Gogh and trying to create our own pieces using his style and techniques. Here we are having a go at some First attempts of portraits where we are up to now. We used mirrors and sketching pencils.
We had lots of fun learning about numbers up to 1,000,000 by playing a great game to beat our partners number! It taught us lots about place value and really enjoyed it!
