Today, we have been consolidating our knowledge of how to find fractions of numbers. Who can tell me how to find a fraction of a number?
This week, we have had a pre-learning session for our next term’s Science topic, which will be all about the human digestive system. We watched video clips and played games to start familiarising ourselves with the topic vocabulary. A big thanks to Mr Wilcock for all his hard work making the activities!
Today, we have continued our History work about the Romans by researching who lived in Britain before they invaded. The children worked in teams to research one aspect of Celtic life before sharing their findings with the rest of the class. Then they played a board game called Crazy Celts where they had to answer questions to further their knowledge. Finally, the class designed Mind Maps to show what they had learnt about the Celts. What a busy afternoon!
As part of our Science work, we have been investigating gases. Mr Wilcock showed us how gases fill the space they are in and what happens to a flame when oxygen runs out. After that, we made predictions and careful observations of what happens when you drop raisins into lemonade. Who thinks they can explain what they saw?
