We are so happy to be back in school with a class full of enthusiastic, eager and energetic children. Please keep checking our page for updates all about our learning and what we’ve been up to.
Science / DT – Making Toilet Roll Torches
We worked in our Year 3/4 bubble for a Science / DT afternoon to design and create a Toilet Roll Torch. We worked in pairs to list ideas, resources, draw diagrams before creating them using our knowledge of circuits.
Science – Circuit Making
Our science topic this half term is Electricity, so we started off with an investigation to see if we could create a circuit to make the bulb light up. We tried a lot of batteries and wires, but we got there in the end!
To remember the brave soldiers, we created a class wreath and displayed it at the War Memorial. We also listened to The Last Post and paid our respects with a 2 minute silence.
We have a termly reading raffle for excellent reading records. The Reading Records are checked weekly and children are rewarded a raffle ticket for 5 entries with meaningful comments. These were this term’s lucky winners.
During computing, we have been working on Programming. We are using the program Scratch to code our own cartoons. So far, we have created code scripts to allow the sprites to talk to each other.
Another Pen Pro
Using perseverance, Oscar got his pen license this week… well done!
Qu’est-ce qu’il y a dans l’armoire?
We’ve been looking at clothes in French this week, we can now ask What’s in the wardrobe? and give an array of answers. We can also label our school uniform in French.
More Handwriting Heroes
Here is the latest batch of Owl Class who have gain their pen licenses. Keep up the good work!
Science – Telephone Transmission
As part of our Light, Sound and Circuits topic, we had a great Science lesson where we created our own telephone devices using plastic cups and strings. We tested them out in the school field to see how far the sound could travel.
Harvest and National Poetry Day
We combined Harvest Season and National Poetry Day by performing some Harvest Poems. We talked about the importance of Harvest and why we celebrate it.
As part of our Light, Sound and Circuits Topic, we have been looking at different Inventors and Scientists. We transferred our knowledge of them in to our sketch books and used our sketching and observation skills to create these masterpieces!
We are working really hard on our presentation and handwriting. If we can consistently join with limited mistakes, we are awarded our Pen Licenses. Here are the children who have achieved them this week.
Mark Making Week
We really enjoyed getting back in to school routines with an exciting Mark Making Week. We used a theme of ‘Ruler Art’ to create different pieces of art, including bookmarks and images on the iPad.
We also produced some fantastic writing, including some poems and an informative ‘All About Me’ booklet, accompanied by some Silhouette Portraits.
