Using arrays to multiply and divide

We had to think about where different natural materials come from. Then we discussed how manmade materials are created. They go through a chemical process which makes them manmade. We had to build two waterways... we were challenged to use natural materials to build a river (natural waterway) and to use manmade materials to build a canal (manmade waterway).


Brain Box!

Katie has been working so hard this week. She has had some fantastic ideas on the carpet and is always helping Miss Lane out and answering her questions! Keep it up Katie!

Partitioning - tens and ones

We had a visit from Pete the Peddlar and he brought with him lots of real and replica Tudor artefacts. There was clothes, jewellery, instruments, toys, writing equipment and weapons. We sat and listened to him telling us about all the different things he had brought. Some of us put on traditional Tudor clothes. We learnt about what life was like for children and he taught us lots about the weapons that soldiers used in their battles. It was very interesting. After that we were allowed to explore, touch and play with the different artefacts. He even helped each of us make our own Tudor coin from a small piece of silver metal. Finally we were allowed to hold one of the Tudor weapons. What a fun afternoon it was!

We will be learning how to listen carefully to music, recognize different instruments and create our own sounds and compositions on the Ipads.


This week we used an app called 'beatwave' to create different musical sounds and patterns.

Do all animals eat the same thing?

In science we learnt about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. We sorted some animals into these groups. Any that we were unsure of we researched on the internet. Some of the class used a sorting program on purple mash. Why don't you have a go at home and see what score you can get?

Just log in through the purple mash button on our school website homepage and search for 'animal grouping'.
