Take a look at our work and displays. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses. See how our skills develop over the course of the academic year.
Earthquake proof houses
In DT this week we investigated the frame structures for our houses. We built a house with a narrow structure and compared it with a wide structure. We also built a house with a short structure and compared tall structure. We used lots of gem power making these structures and discovered a short structure with a wide base was the strongest.
Earthquake Wow Day
We had a great first day back. Not only was it our first swimming lesson but it was also our Wow day. As part of our Wow day we worked in teams of 3 to build newspaper towers. The newspaper towers needed to be tall, strong and able to withstand an earthquake. The children worked well together. Some towers were very successful.
Weaving, painting and using a dictionary.
This week we started our woven trees. We started by drawing our background on our plate and painting our plate. We then looked at the weaving they would have had in the Stone Age. We then wove the tree trunk of the tree. Our next step is the weave the branches.
We have also spent some time looking at dictionaries and how we can use them.
Stone Age Day
We had a brilliant day Wednesday! We dressed up as Stone Age people, created cave drawings and also had a fashion show. We have also worked hard getting to know each other and created some class rules by drawing around each other and writing all of the good learning behaviours inside of the body and all of the learning behaviours we avoid outside of the body.
