Look at what we've been up to!

In Science, we are now learning all about animals including humans. We have looked at different animals and their life cycles, including our own life cycle! We will be conducting some experiments to do with exercise and keeping our teeth clean and healthy. Here we are making some pin wheel life cycles:

     

 

In Geography, we are now continent and ocean experts and are now exploring hot and cold places! We are researching different hot and cold places and will be looking at how animals adapt to their environment.

     

In RE, we began the Spring term by looking at how symbols and actions are used in worship and compared Christian and Muslim acts of workship. We are now thinking about belonging and how it feels to be part of a group.

     

In Art, we are exploring the work of LS Lowry and learning a range of techniques such as creating tone with pencils and tints and shades with paint. Eventually we will put all our new learning together to recreate a school scene in the style of Lowry.

   

In D&T, we have looked at structures and experimented with how to create a sturdy structure using just paper cylinders! We then used our discoveries to design and make a chair for Baby Bear:

   

In History, we are learning about the Victorian period. In particular, we are focussing on the life of children; at work, at school and at play.

   

In Computing this term we began by looking at data handling, how data is collected and what types of experiments are conducted on the International Space Station. We are now beginning our Word Processing unit and learning how to type and edit our work. 

    

In PE, we begun the spring term with gymnastics and invasion games. We are now exploring 'Net and Wall Games' such as tennis, badminton and volley ball. In previous units we have improved on our ball skills and attacking skills and are now working on how to defend. In our 'Fundamentals' unit we are building on aspects of our fitness such as running, skipping, jumping and hopping and exploring the best ways to increase speed and maintain stamina.

   

   

In Music, our unit is 'Inventing a Musical Story' where the children will explore how to create different sounds with their instruments to communicate a story and emotions. We begin every lesson with a warm up of our bodys and faces! We then listen to a range of pieces of music each week and answer questions about them before moving on to our skill focus for the lesson.
