We also made chocolate bread as part of our class treat

28.1.22 What we have been learning 



In Maths this week, we have started a new unit on fractions. We started by looking at tenths and hundredths and how they compare then we moved onto equivalent fractions. Below you can see where we have used our times tables knowledge to work out equivalent fractions. 




We continued our work on circuits by testing materials to see if they were conductors or insulators. 


This week we were very excited to practise using collage techniques. Our teachers gave us lots of different materials, which we could choose to use in different ways, to try and recreate the effect of dragon scales. We used ripping, cutting, scrunching and overlaying and it was a lot of fun! 


17.1.22  What we've been learning:



As part of our literacy lessons, we have been planning our escape narrative for our class book (Podkin one ear). We are really enjoying the book and have come across interesting vocabulary to include in our work. 







We have been enquiring about circuits and electricity. We made our own circuits and thought about how to make it complete. It took us some time to make the components work but it was worth it in the end smiley!




We have just started a new unit on Viking dragons. We will be exploring collage and different textures to make our own dragon scale as part of a collaborative piece of work. 


In P.E we have been doing basketball. We are getting great at dribbling and the triple threat position.
