Our Learning Journey
Our new topic this half term is Scream Machine where we will be learning about the science behind roller coasters and exploring fairground shape poetry and mechanisms. We enjoyed our Fairground themed experience activities.
We took part in another successful homework competition which led to some fantastically creative roller coaster and theme park models
Our first topic in 2019 was Stargazers and we have been learning about the order, relative size and distance of planets in our solar system. We have also been writing newspaper reports on the moon landing of 1969. We took part in a homework competition to design our own rockets and space vehicles and they are proudly displayed in our classroom.
We took part in the Grow to School project and worked in teams to find out about food from all around the world to make wraps. Our countries were Somalia, Hungary, Iraq and Jamaica. We used unusual ingredients such as cumin, lentils, caraway and sauerkraut. When we voted, Jamaica was the class favourite!
We are proud to be taking part in the Prince William Award with Skill Force. Our sessions focus on learning and improving skills such as teamwork, self-control, trust and co-operation and out learning activities are always fun! You can find out more about Skill Force on our blog (link to blog here).
