In Geography this week, we had a map of Worksop from the past and a map of Worksop from today. We explored the similarities and differences and thought about why these differences might have occurred.
In Science, the children got busy with magnets and explored what items around the classroom were magnetic.
This week in Art, the children explored the work of artists who have created artwork inspired by Van Gogh. The children then designed their own starry night Narnia landscape with the inspiration of Van Gogh.
This week I’m Geography, we have been using Atlases. We had the opportunity to explore the Atlas, then we focused on finding familiar places on the map of the UK. We then found Sheffield on the map and explored surrounding areas, services and sites.
This week in Science, we have learnt a about magnets. We had the opportunity to explore what magnets can do, then created a poster to share th facts about magnets we have learnt.
In Art this week we have continued exploring the work of Vincent Van Gogh. We have looked at different artists and their work who were inspired by Van Gogh and compared and explored the different paintings. We then had a go at revealing the techniques that were used in Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’.
In Geography this week, we have been learning about how to use a compass. We first looked carefully at the compass and learnt about the four main directions: North, East, South and West. We even learnt the mnemonic Never Eat Soggy Waffles to help us remember! We then used the compasses to find the direction of different items around the classroom.
This week in Science, we have been learning all about friction. We set up an experiment to see how different surfaces would effect the speed of a toy car. We noticed that on surfaces that were more rough, the car was slower due to higher friction and on surfaces that were more smooth, the car was faster due to less friction.
We have started our new topic this week in Geography, which is all about where we live. This week we learnt all about maps and grid references. To help us remember how to read a grid reference, we have learnt to go ‘along the corridor, then up the stairs!’
In Science, we have started our new topic which is magnets and forces. This week we have explored push and pull forces and thought about which everyday items have a push, pull or push and pull force.
In Art, we have explored different oil pastel techniques.
Well done to all the children that took part in our World Space Week science competition! We have been really impressed with your creations!
In Science, we have been exploring which activities increase our heart rate the most. The activities we tried were jumping jacks, running and walking. We tested our heart rate before and after the activity and compared the difference. We found out that running increased our heart rate the most.
In science, we have been looking at the human skeleton. Our task was to draw around our selves and label parts of our skeleton
In Art, we have been looking at cave drawings from the Stone Age. We have explored different materials and textures to create our own cave drawings.
In RE, we have been looking at Christianity and learning all about the 10 Commandments. The children’s task was to act out one of the 10 Commandments for the rest of the children to guess. Do you think you can guess which Commandment is being acted out?
The children love using our outdoor gym.
