Topic

Music

Over the next few weeks in our music lessons, we are going to be using the Ipads and an app called Garage Band to create our own musical compositions. 

Geography 

This week we have been learning all about the water cycle and why it rains. This was a very appropriate lesson after the recent floods that Worksop unfortunately suffered. We learnt where rain comes from, what clouds are made out of and lots of technical vocabulary to describe the water cycle, such as; evaporation, condensation and precipitation.

 

History 

Today we continued with our local history topic and we have been learning all about the history of the Welbeck Estate. We learnt that Welbeck Abbey was originally a Monastery until King Henry VIII came into power and he decided to close all of the Monasteries. We wrote a letter to King Henry VIII to tell him some ideas for what the Abbey could be turned into. Some of our ideas included; play park, a zoo, a home for the poor, a hotel, a library, and a swimming pool. 

Science

 

This week in science we have been discussing the meaning of the word 'dissolve'. We then recorded a method for a science experiment we will be taking part in next week. 

Geography

Today in Geography we took part in a mystery skype. We had to ask questions to find out what country the other class was calling from. Some of the questions we asked were as follows: 

 

1. What language do you speak?

2. Do you have a beach?

3. What is the weather like there?

Science 

 

Today in Science we have been learning about why Scientists do experiments. We also learnt to recognise the hazard symbols that are used to help scientists carry out experiments safely. 

History 

 

Today in History we have been researching the History of Worksop. We looked at the main events that have happened in Worksop and then put these on a timeline. 

Computing 

 

Today we were introduced to the coding app ScratchJr. Our Teacher talked us through the different coding blocks and what they are used for. We then had a go at using the coding blocks: hop, go home, reset size, turn clockwise, turn counter clockwise to create a short project. We found out how to use these coding blocks to make characters perform different tasks. Our teacher explained to us that in order to code a program successfully the instructions need to be clear and precise. We then looked at how to start and end a program using the green flag and end blocks. Next, we looked at how to create different backgrounds for our projects and how these can be edited using ScratchJr. Finally, we used all of this information to create a collage based around our topic this term.

Geography

This week in Geography we have been looking at using compasses. We discussed what the different points on the compass are and how they are used in different settings. Next, we looked at different resources we can use to find directions to different places. Finally, we followed instructions to answer questions.

Mystery Skype

 

This morning we took part in a mystery skype. We spoke to a teacher from Russia who told us all about the international peace project. Children all over the world take part in activities to promote peace. She taught us some Russian phrases and then we created our own drawings of what 'peace' means to us. 

 

Skype - Turtle Hospital 

Today we took part in a virtual field trip. We got to travel to North Carolina through a skype session. We discovered the 7 species of sea turtles, which are truly endearing creatures for a host of reasons. The scientist explained why they need their protection as currently all 7 species are on the endangered list, some critically. We found out many fascinating facts about the sea turtles and discovered they are nothing short of astonishing. We found out that sea turtles have existed for over 110 million years, they are among the top 5 migratory animals, they travel thousands of miles in a lifetime and they dive deeper than whales, over 4,000 feet. We also found out that humankind needs healthy oceans in order to survive, as much as sea turtles do. We discovered that we are all dependent upon healthy oceans-people as well as marine life-for clean air, clean water and seafood. We are all connected! We got to see captivating images by award-winning, marine life photographer Jim Abernethy and found out how we can protect sea turtles and their habitat, and in doing so we will all have healthier oceans. We were amazed to discover that 50% of the oxygen we breathe comes from the ocean-produced by phytoplankton. We had the opportunity to ask our own questions and find out how to become ocean ambassadors.
