Term 4


This week has been Easter crazy! We have been creating scenes from the Easter story during RE lessons, and painting eggs as part of a PFS tradition during DT - what a week!

This week we have been exploring what goes on inside our bodies a bit more - we have learned that organs are protected by our skeleton, organs help our bodies to function, skeletons are needed to help us to move, support and protect us and muscles are needed to control our movements. We created hands to show how our gliding joints work, and we made a paper arms to show that muscles work in pairs.

We have been working very hard with our fractions learning week, findings unit and non-unit fractions of number. We have also begun exploring equivalent fractions!

In music this week, we used glockenspiels to explore different note lengths. We learned that crotchets are one beat and paired quavers are half each - so two of them make one beat. We then had to write our own rhythm and play it!

This week in RE, we have been learning about Hinduism and the importance of a Rangoli pattern. We were collaborative cats and worked together to create a giant rangoli with tissue paper!

Wow what fun we have had this week in science! We have been working together to explore the importance of a skeleton - this week's focus what on support. Without a skeleton, we wouldn't be able to stand upright. We used straws to show the main supporting bones in our bodies.

Learning Lift Off

What a week it has been! We have kicked off this term's topic, Take a Look Inside, with a Learning Lift Off. We embraced our inquisitive side by asking questions about what we would like to find out. We wrote down some facts that we already knew about bones and skeletons. We had to become doctors and investigate some broken bones using x-ray images. We also had to put together a life-size skeleton! We were palaeontologists when looking at bones and trying to identify the animal.
