Current Topic - The Romans

Click here for our curriculum overview letter.

 Take a look at some of our previous topics:

In Mathematics we have been revising the column method for addition and subtraction.

 

In Science we have been investigating and drawing conclusions. We have learnt about variables and fair tests. We created hoop gliders and performed experiments to see which hoop glider would glide the furthest. We came to the conclusion that the longer the glider was, and the larger the hoops, the further it would go. 

 

 

Our new topic is EXPLORERS. We are currently exploring the United Kingdom!

One of the most exciting things we have done lately was visit Windmill Hill for our school journey! We took a bus all the way to East Sussex and stayed overnight for 2 nights and 4 days. We had a lovely time frolicking in the snow! It was a memorable way to finish winter!

 

 

In Mathematics we have been learning about measurement, perimeter and area. We have been learning how to convert units of measurement and how to find equivalent measurements.  We have also been measuring things around the school to find their perimeter and area. He is some pictures of us exploring measurement in the outdoors.    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 We had an internet safety day! We learnt about the importance of staying safe on the internet. Eva made this lovely internet safety poster for our classroom. 

 

In Science we have been learning about electricity! We have just started to explore where electricity comes from. We have discussed renewable and non- renewable sources of electricity. We are able to distinguish the difference been electricity supplied by mains, and electricity supplied by batteries. Soon we are about to explore how to make circuits, we cannot wait!

 

 

 

In Music, we have been learning about beat and rhythm. We discussed different musical notes and their values. We wrote our own beat and used the drums to perform it to the class.
