Look at our amazing lighthouses we made at home!
Look at us making our own lighthouses. We are going to use the circuit we have made to light the bulb at the top!
We have been learning about how to make a circuit.
Pirate Pete Story Text
As requested by the children, here is a copy of our class text for the next three weeks. Can you find the alliteration, the 'ly' words, any questions, character names? The children are using a story map to chant and put actions to the text this week.
Celebrating Chinese New Year
We had a visitor in school today and she taught us some traditional Chinese dance moves and then our visitor gave us dragon heads, umbrellas and a huge dragon tail to use our new moves in a dragon dance. Here are some photos of us but you can also find some short clips in the video section.
We found out about Captain Cook this week. Can you remember any facts about him? Use the powerpoint below to help you.
Our 3D shape models.
Finding out about the most suitable material
As part of our topic on Land Ahoy we came across a problem where someone had spilled a liquid on the captain's deck. We had to work out which material would best absorb the liquid.
To measure this fairly we made a fair test with equal amount of liquid and the same size piece of material. Look how we measured how much liquid was absorbed and how much remained!
We looked at the 2D shape faces on 3D shapes and had great fun printing with them!
Lollipop Stick Challenge
To start our topic on Shape we had to work in a team, using an envelope of lollipop sticks and make as many different 2D shapes as possible. We had to consider the number and length of sides and corners. Each shape had to be the same colour of sticks. We had fun and talked about 2D shape properties.
