Today we became archaeologists and dug for Stone Age artefacts.
This week we begun our new topic of the Stone Age to the Iron Age. The children have started making shelters, which has been brilliant. The children may ask for more resources to bring in as they will be continuing to improve their shelters over the course of the term.
The children had great fun finding different conversions of measure.
This term the children planned, made and created packaging for a quiche.
We had lots of fun finding equivalent fractions by dividing chocolate into different fractions.
Living things and their habitats
This half term the children have been learning all about different life cycles of animals and plants.
This week we researched zoos and debated if they should be banned.
The children had great fun in science this week! Here are some pictures of the children dissecting a flower.
Mr Lewis kindly brought in his pet reptiles for the children to see, hold and listen to facts about. He brought in a leopard gecko, corn snake, boa constrictor, bosc monitor and African snails!
