Spring Term

Art
Andy Goldsworthy. 
Today we went outside for our art lesson to create land art inspired by Andy Goldsworthy.
We used challenge cards to help us with our ideas.
Science
Electricity 
Today we investigated electrical conductors and insulators. 
We tried using different items to see if they allowed electric to flow through the circuit.
Maths
Short Multiplication 
We used concrete and pictorial methods to help us understand how to use a written form of multiplication. We used the expanded and short methods and then decided which one we preferred and why. 
Maths 
Short Division 
Today we used concrete and pictorial methods to help us understand short division. 
PE 
Orienteering 
In this lesson we developed our teamwork skills. We put ourselves in order and traveled across the 'river' without stepping outside our markers. This was tough especially when Miss Philip started to take some of our equipment away!
 
PE
Orienteering 
We used our map skills to find letters hidden around the playground and then worked as a team to unscramble the words. 
Science 
Electricity 
Today we explored electric circuits by using different electrical components to make a complete circuit. 
DT
Textiles 
We have used different sewing techniques to create our own bookmarks. 
PE
Invasion Games 
We have been learning how to pass the ball between our team without the opposition catching it. 
We have also been practicing how to use attacking skills so we can successfully catch the ball from the other team. 
Science 
Electricity 
In this lesson we made our own switches and used them in an electric circuit.   We investigated the effect of the switch on our electrical circuit. 
Music 
We used the notes D, E and F to follow music and play together in time.

Maths 
Exploring Area 
We used Numicon to explore the area of different rectilinear shapes and then used squared paper to investigate the area of our names. After this, we found out that we could use our multiplication facts to help us work out area, so we played games to practice this using dice and squared paper.
