Scientific Snowmen Investigation

Today, we were investigating a concept cartoon.

We were identifying what the effect of wearing a coat was on a snowman.

We used ice cubes and left one out in the classroom and the other gor wrapped in a coat of cotton wool and cling film.

What do you think will happen?

Here's a clue 4H were very suprised with their results.

    

  

Christmas Around theWorld-How do you celebrate yours?

In English this week, we have been learning about Christmas around the world. We are very fortunate to have many different cultures in our classsroom so we were able to share and learn about how Christmas is traditionally celebrated by different namtionalities.

To build up a non-chronolgical report we esearched about Christmas around the world, before we created mindmaps on the ipad.

     

Festive Fun-Party time!

What a lovely time of year it is! Today we celebrated Christmas with a good old knees up.

Playing party games and dancing to Christmas music ready for the festivities and magic of Christmas time.

    

Can you tell we loved the chocolate game? Although Miss Harrison's hat, scarf and gloves took an age to get on!

Term 2

We are moving forward in time to the Bronze Age, starting with an exciting trip to Flag Fen to explore how the prehistoric people of the fens lived over 3000 years ago. We will be wandering through a Bronze Age village, sitting inside reconstructed roundhouses and asking lots of questions about how and why the monumental causeway was built.                   

We will learn about states of matter in Science, setting up practical investigations to explore these in different ways. In DT we are looking forward to becoming experts in all forms of weaving! 

Reading is a vital part of your child's curriculum. Please make sure your child is reading regularly and that you have written in your child's reading record. Children are given stickers every time an adult signs their reading record, when they have collected ten stickers they are awarded a prize so please help them towards this by reminding them to read every day!

Keep checking for updates and photos of our learning this term.

Diwali

Our trip to FLAG FEN

We were very excited before our trip to Flag Fen and it was worth the wait! We had a wonderful day exploring life in the Bronze Age and learned new skills making clay pots and using natural objects to decorate them.                                           

 

We saw the actual Bronze Age causeway that Flag Fen is famous for - it is the only known intact discovery of a 3000 year old structure. The guide told us we are very lucky to have seen it as within 30 to 50 years it will have rotted away!

We sat in the reconstructed roundhouse and listened to a story before making a wish by touching a Bronze Age artefact - a real sword! 

       

We found out the difference between field archaeology and experimental archeology. We saw the real artefacts dug up by archaelogists (field) and pretended to row in a replica Bronze Age boat (experimental).                      

Overall we had a fantastic day, the staff highly commended the children for their exemplary behaviour and attitude to learning and we all came home having learned something new.

 

Term 1

What an exciting term we have planned! Our first topic this year is titled 'Yabadabadoo' so we will be learning all about from the Stone Age to the Iron Age and creating our own settlements. What do you know about the Stone Age? What was it like to live then?

We will also be investigating electrical circuits, exploring Islam and learning the history of animation in computing.

Reading is a vital part of your child's curriculum. Please make sure your child is reading regularly and that you have written in your child's reading record.

Willow Weaving Wonders

This week saw some fantastic creations been made in Year Four.

We had a lovely artist known as Alison Walling. She sculpts art using Willow.

She brought with her a very kind, but large pig. Alison explained the process and differences between weaving with different types of willow.

We were then lucky enough to weave a star for the Christmas hoops and to also weave Christmas trees for the Christmas Fayre.

Make sure you purchased a Christmas tree decoration, they were all uniquely hand crafted by our fantastic children.
