WB 24.02.20 - Science

 

In our science lesson this week, we began to understand the different life stages of human development. We talked about physical, emotional, social and psychological development and we completed our own human development timelines.

This week, we discussed the meaning of faith and how people can discriminate others because of their faith. We then thought of some ideas to prevent discrimination. Look at some of our colourful posters below:

WB 10.02.20 - Vicious Viking Blogging

 

On Wednesday night, 24 children stayed after school and participated in a Viking event. We used coloured pens to decorate different Viking masks. We also learnt about what Vikings used to eat and drink and how they made their own food. Then, we baked our own bread.

WB 10.02.20 - Science

 

In our science lesson this week, we learnt more about the life cycles of different animals. We found out about the similarities and differences between different life cycles, such as bird and amphibians. Then, we worked together in small groups to present a programme called 'Life', where we informed other people about the life cycle of a chicken and a frog.

WB 10.02.20 - Computing - Safer Internet Day

 

We had some really good discussions about internet use and how to stay safe online. We discussed the purpose of avatars and how they can help protect our identity online.

WB 03.02.20 - Science

 

This week, we began to understand the meaning of metamorphosis and identified the life cycles of amphibians and insects, including the life cycle of a frog, a butterfly and a newt. We discussed the similarities and differences between these life cycles.

WB 03.02.20 - Design Technology

 

This week, we had a DT Day with the aim of making a moving toy. We started the morning by researching ideas about animals to inform our designs. We thought about how the animals move, their appearance and their habitat. Then, we watched some videos to identify how cam mechanisms work and we drew some diagrams and labelled the key parts. After that, we worked in small groups to explore cam movement. We made simple mechanisms with a snail cam to identify how this moved the follower. We then thought about the final designs for our moving mechanism. We followed step by step instrutions to make the moving animal toys. We made a box that stored the cam mechanism and added the cam, follower and rotating handle. You can see the design process below:

WB 27.01.20 - History

 

In our history lesson this week, we researched facts about the life of a Viking warrior. We created informative posters, including information about Viking clothes, homes, food and religion. Take a look at some of our work below:

WB 20.01.20 - Science

 

This week, we researched facts about Jane Goodall and her work with the Gombe chimpanzees in Tanzania. We understood that chimpanzees are an endangered species and we discussed the threats they face in the wild. Together, we created advertisements about the Jane Goodall Institute and the way it works to protect chimpanzees. Take a look at some freeze-frames from our lesson below:

WB 20.01.20 - History

 

In our History lesson this week, we discussed the significance of two, famous Anglo-Saxon kings. We researched facts about both of these people, before acting out a debate between the two leaders. Take a look at some of our findings below:

WB 13.01.20 - Science

 

In our Science lesson this week, we took cuttings from flowers to see if we can grow new plants that are genetically identical to the parent plant. We are looking forward to checking on them over the next week to see whether they grow their own roots.

WB 13.01.20 - Trip to Perlethorpe

 

On Monday 13th January, we visited Perlethorpe and participated in a Viking day to support our history learning. We were met by Magnus, who informed us of the Viking timeline, and we explored the Viking longhouse and the variety of artefacts. We played games with Viking shields, made flour by using a quern and made traditional Viking jewellery. In the afternoon, we demonstrated good teamwork by making shelters and setting up a Viking camp. Take a look at our day below:

 

 

WB 06.01.20 - Science

 

In our science lesson this week, we identified the parts of a flower and discussed their purpose. We then worked together to decide which plants are pollinated by the wind and which plants are pollinated by insects. Next week, we will be dissecting flowers.

WB 06.01.20 - History

 

In our history lesson this week, we began to understand where, when and why the Vikings raided Britain. We created some fact files, answering key questions about the Vikings and we finished the lesson by ordering key events on a timeline.
