We all really enjoyed Science Week - there were certainly lots of fun, scientific activities going on. We started the week off watching fun experiments performed by Year 6 children - white coats included! On Thursday science teachers from Walderslade Girls School presented lots of fun experiments to illustrate chemical reaction during an assembly - this was really enjoyed by everyone. On Friday we had a talk about owls - this included them flying across the school hall which was a wonderful sight to see. As well as all of this we did some experiments in class which the children really enjoyed - they particularly liked making their own ice pops, which they enjoyed at break time on Friday. Many of the children in Orange Classes did some research and experiments at home too. There was lots of work for us to display at the Science Fair - thank you very much for your support in this - the children really enjoyed looking at each other's work.
At the start of the coming week, in our maths lessons we will be completing our weighing activities. We will then move onto the topic of 'fractions' looking at halves and quarters of a shape or an object as well as halving and quartering a quantity.
Our topic this term is Turrets and Tiaras and we will be starting our English lessons this week by looking at information texts about castles and finding out what it was like to live in a castle in the past. This topic is also our History topic and it will be nice to make links using the skills we are learning in English.
Art lessons this term will be all about sculpture and we are looking forward to investigating both large and small sculptures. If you see any sculptures when you are out and about we would love to hear about them!
Have an enjoyable week!
The Orange Class Team
