Maths Sorting Games
Out term's topic started by understanding that the eye needs light to see and that the absence of light is darkness. Our investigation involved us trying to identify objects in boxes with only two holes letting in a little light before shining a torch through one of the holes.
3D Shapes and Properties
After a great start looking at the properties of 3D shapes, we used Venn and Carroll diagrams to help us sort 3D shapes. It was impressive to hear the confident use of key mathematical words being used.
Creative pots of clay
Most of what we know today about the Stone Age is from what has been dug up from the ground including clayware such as small pots. Today we tried to create our own small pot, thinking about how people made them thousands of years ago by hand- our connection to the past.
Welcome Back to the Summer Term!
The summer term is here already, can you believe it?
Our topic this term is called Set in Stone looking at the past from Stone Age times through Bronze Age and into the Stone Age. We will be covering many different areas through our topic work such as making clay pots and our own versions of cave art as well as looking at poetry about these eras by poets such as Michael Rosen and songs by the Horrible Histories team. Our class book is the wonderful The Stone Age Boy.
Our Science unit of work will focus on Light and Shadows this term and our PE will find us improving our fitness levels through various activities as well as learning Tag Rugby. The Lincolnshire Music service will be teaching us how to play an instrument on Thursday mornings and we will continue to develop our Coding skills in Computing as well as learning more about privacy when using the internet.
Keep looking back through the term for further updates and lots of photos!
