Years 3 & 4 have learned about the essential part flowers have to play in the reproduction of flowering plants. We looked at different flowers and used magnifying glasses and careful observation skills to identify and label the different parts of a flower. We then found out how pollination and fertilisation occur and how some […]Read More Fantastic flowers in LKS2
We’re practising our sewing on a regular basis in order to prepare for our monster keyring project, and have spent this afternoon looking at how to use materials efficiently. We looked at how we could tessellate our templates in order to minimise wasting of materials. There were some very creative solutions in evidence!Read More More template work in LKS2 DT
Year 4 have brought the carnival spirit to the classroom as we use song and dance (well, conga) to help us learn vocabulary for our ‘Bon Appetit!’ French topic this half-term. We’re doing a great job of asking and answering questions using key vocabulary and will be ordering food and drink in ‘Cafe Classe Quatre’ […]Read More Classe 4 aiment les fruits!
LKS2 have retrieved their celery from around the school in order to find out whether the temperature of the room it was in had affected the rate of water transportation. We put sticks of celery in a measuring beaker containing water and food colouring and placed them in the fridge in the staff room, Year […]Read More LKS2 Science investigation – the results are in!
We’re continuing our preparatory work for our textiles project by starting to use templates in order to produce identical copies of something. We were tasked with making two identical finger puppets so had to draw our template, cut it out carefully and use it to produce two duplicates. Measuring skills were needed to ensure that […]Read More Templates for finger puppets
Years 3 & 4 have set up a week-long investigation to establish whether room temperature affects the speed of water transportation in plants. We’ve put 100ml of water and 1tsp of food colouring into a measuring cylinder with a stick of celery and put the cylinders in different areas around the school. In theory, the […]Read More Water transportation investigation in LKS2
Years 3 & 4 have recapped some of their previous learning about plants in order to get us going on our Summer 2 Science topic of plants. Their recall of the parts of a plant was very impressive and we have investigated the function of each plant. MRS GREN, our acronym from last half term’s […]Read More Parts of a Plant LKS2
We rounded off our Science learning for this half-term by discussing habitat change, whether natural or man-made. We identified natural changes to habitats, such as the changing seasons, flood or drought and discussed whether they have a positive or negative effect on the living things within that habitat. We then went on to look more […]Read More LK2 Science – climate and habitat change – what can WE do to help?
LKS2 have turned travel agent in order to show off their Geography learning from this half-term. They have showcased the best of the USA in beautifully designed and written leaflets, all of which detail physical and human features of this vast nation including the wealth of Native American culture that all tourists should learn about. […]Read More BOOK NOW FOR THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME!
The progress that Years 3 & 4 have made in DT this half-term is nothing short of brilliant. They have learned so many new skills and are applying them successfully. We spent last couple of weeks of term making prototypes, evaluating them and making our final piece of work – an interactive exhibit aimed at […]Read More LKS2 mechanisms – the journey continues!
