Spring Term so far...
In Science, we have been looking at 'everyday materials'. To test the properties of different solids, we built bridges of our own which had to allow a car to cross over the top of them (see photos below). This was a great activity for demonstrating our teamwork skills and also inginuity.
Our Science bridge lesson tied in very nicely to our topic this half term; the Victorians. We have been studying some of the most important/influential people of the time and will have to decide at the end of the half term who we think the most important person was and why. So far, we have looked at Barnardo, William Forster, Brunel and we have Queen Victoria coming up next.
In Maths, we have been learning all about halving, quartering and splitting shapes into thirds. To make the lesosns more memorable (and hopefully fractions easier to calculate) we cut up pizzas and looked at how some fractions are the same and others are not. We then got to eat the pizzas at the end (yay!)
We had a fantastic time at Hollow Trees farm! We learnt all about life on the farm and where our food comes from. We were lucky enough to see and feed the animals, which included cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, donkeys, goats and more! We had a ride on a tractor and trailer which was great fun and also got to plant our own peas. Thanks to Hollow Trees for a great day!
