Wow! What an action-packed term! Badger class have thoroughly enjoyed continuing to learn about Ancient Greece.
In English we wrote newspaper reports based on The Trojan War and play scripts based on ‘Icarus – the boy who flew too high.’
In Maths we continued to learn about fractions (subtracting and multiplying them) before moving on to decimals and percentages.
We had a great time on World Book Day and looked amazing in their costumes.
During Science week we investigated how wind turbines and water wheels work before making their own models in groups. We also investigated what happens when you heat a marshmallow in a microwave – it makes a ‘Monster Marshmallow!’ They wrote predictions, made observations and wrote conclusions using their scientific knowledge. They enjoyed the Science show about air.
Our Science topic has been ‘Sound.’ We discovered how sounds were made, how we hear them and what affects the pitch of sounds. We explored sound through making harmonicas, string telephones and making singing spoons.
In Design Technology the children have had the opportunity to taste and evaluate bread before designing and baking their own – they were fantastic!
We also had the opportunity of a great coaching session from Swindon Town which they enjoyed taking part in.
We have just enjoyed a super ‘Ancient Greek Day’ to bring together all their learning. Thank you very much for their excellent costumes – they looked brilliant! We are now busy practising our class assembly which will take place at the start of next term – we look forward to sharing that with you. Enjoy the holidays and have a very Happy Easter!
