What we have been up to...
We learnt that having good hand-eye coordination, spacial awareness and balance enabled us to successfully throw and catch the frisbee with our partner.
We sorted the data of school children and organised them using information of their age, weight, height and year group.
We enjoyed showcasing our work for parents and carers at the exhibition which was held after school.
The theme for the poems was Freedom.
We discussed what freedom was and also rewrote the poem changing the character and the setting.
We have been working as mini teachers and marking a setting description against a success criteria.
We then edited the piece of work and wrote our own setting description based on a setting during World War 2.
We chose a scene from our current class book and recreated the scene through drama. We then performed this scene in front of our peers and they had to guess which scene we had performed.
Over the Christmas period we created calendars and cards. We stitched a candle using a needle and a colourful range of thread on to Binca.
We looked at major changes to Bradford during World War 2.
We discussed what Bradford was like prior to the war and how the war changed the city.
We were able to investigate how solid turns to a liquid when it snowed!
We observed snow and ice forming and when it turned into a liquid. We also built a snowman!
To help us work out groups of two digit numbers we used base 10 to help us work the answer to calculations and word problems.
Science – Freezing and Melting
Our challenge was to find a way to melt the ice in a cup to read the fortune message hidden inside.
We found that using the radiator would take too long but running warm water into the cup was the quickest way to melt the ice!
ICT – E-Safety
We listened carefully and shared ideas with each other and Luke Carson – from the West Yorkshire Cyber Crime Unit about staying safe online.
PE – Invasion Games
In PE this term we are learning about tackling and playing as part of a team.
Our chosen sport is Basketball.
RE – Pilgrimages
We have been learning about pilgrimages of different faiths. We looked at how Muslim pilgrims celebrate returning from the journey of Hajj by decorating their homes with paintings.
Science – Water Cycle
We made our own water cycle using a clear plastic bag, water and blue food colouring.
We left them on the windowsill to observe evaporation and condensation.
Maths - Division
We have been learning to divide by using the chunking method.
This involves us using our knowledge of our times tables to help us to divide.
Here, you can see us using our inference and retrieval skills to pick out information from a text to answer questions.
We used a map to locate rivers from around the world.
We looked at key vocabulary to describe parts of a river.
We worked in groups to complete the challenging STEM maths mastery activities.
We had to solve different word problems and complete puzzles. Mrs Javed and Mrs Cavalier-Lumley then checked our answers and we moved on to the next challenge.
We used our reasoning skills to help solve some of the problems.
We used our Art books to sketch and draw the jewelleryas well as characters from the story, The Wicked Wish.
Mrs Javed even let us try on her wedding jewellery which was really fun!
