Autumn 2017 Term 1
Our current topic is.... Water
We will be adding lots of photos, information and pieces of work to this page as time goes on. Please check back soon.
Boat Building 22.01.18
To fit in with our Water topic, we took part in a mathematical investigation today. We worked in groups to plan what materials we would need to build our boat with a limited budget. This involved lots of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Then we had to buy our materials from the "shop". Next we built our boats and then tested them to see which would hold the most cubes.
Fantastic Fundraisers 5.12.17
We have been invited to take part in The Might Sky singing workshop which is part of the Mrs Sunderland Festival at Huddersfield Town Hall in February. We thought it would be great if we could all wear special matching t-shirts for it so decided to plan some fundraising to buy them. Our project has involved maths, literacy and our creative talents and culminated in a Winter Wonderland fundraising fair. We all create games to play or products to sell at the fair. We raised an amazing £338.80!!!!
We've been learning our place!!! 17.11.17
..... place value that is!!! We turned our whole classroom into a huge place value chart during our maths lesson today. Perfect for those active/kinasthetic learners! We used ourselves as markers and rolled to the correct place to multiply by 10 or 100. That should make this lesson a difficult one to forget!!!
Dewa Roman Experience 4.10.17
What a fantastic day we had. We tried on armour and trained as Roman soldiers to become the Yorkshire Legion and even learned how to position ourselves in "testudo formation". We learned how it felt to be a slave and be thrown into a Roman jail. We discovered how we know about the Romans through archaeology and learned how Romans built arches. We are Roman experts now.
Marvellous Mosaics 29.9.17
We have been studying Roman mosaics and have tried to recreate our own versions using a variety of peas and beans. We are incredibly pleased with the results... they look great!
Scientific Sorting 27.9.17
In science we have been thinking about the different properties of a variety of different materials... Are they rigid, flexible or brittle??? We sorted a variety of materials in different ways according to their properties....
Amazing Artefacts 27.9.17
One of our homework tasks was to create our own Roman artefact and look at the amazing things we have produced....
...There were so many fantastic Roman shields that we had to practice our battle manoeuvres.
