In our life skills session this week, we have made oat biscuits as a healthy alternative snack. The pupils have been encouraged to work as independently as possible and have used their numeracy skills to weigh the ingredients. Some pupils have experienced a range of different tastes and textures. The results were delicious!
7M are learning about variation. In this topic we look at how living organisms are different and how they have adapted to their environments.
Over the past 2 lessons we have designed and made a model of our own animal which is a mix of at least two different animals. Can you guess the animal combinations?
8L have been looking at different light festivals. They have looked at Hanukkah and Diwali so far. We hope you enjoy the photos.
We have made divas for Diwali and potato latkes for Hanukkah.
In creative studies, we have completed our textiles module by finishing our sock puppets. Here are our efforts…
I hope you liked our efforts. Until next time.
Today, in science, we explored what is needed for electricity to “work”. In our first activity, we tried to make a bulb light with just a bulb, a cell and tin foil…
We realised, that for the bulb to light, the electricity needs to travel around a circuit.
We then used electrical equipment to make different types of circuit and have started to learn the different electrical symbols…
Until the next time.
The pupils in 8P have designed and made two African Ligbi masks. During these phases of learning, we carried out research and planning and design work before creating their masks. The pupils have developed their construction skills by making two Ligbi masks using two different materials.
In creative studies, we have completed a range of projects using textiles. We have been experimenting with dyes and decided to make ourselves a tie-dye T-shirt. First, we tied our t-shirts, made them damp and added coloured dyes.
We let the dyes diffuse over night and then looked at our creations…
I hope you like our efforts…
Until next time.
In science, we have been exploring the properties of light. Last week we looked at reflections, so naturally we looked at refraction this week. We looked at how light can change direction when it travels through different mediums. After a quick demonstration, we then looked at how light travels through different shaped glass prisms and recorded our findings.
Until next time.
In science, we have been looking at the life forms around us. This morning we looked at different types of mini beasts. Using magnifying glasses, we looked at their structure and tried to classify them.
Until next time.
Another week has flown by…here’s a bit of what we’ve been up to
In maths we’ve been working on learning our numbers and adding them together.
In English we’ve been working on learning our letters, and practicing typing words we know on the computer to test our spellings.
In PSHE we started our new topic of identity; who are we? We took some photos of ourselves and our friends, everyone loves a selfie apparently! We then had a go finding our friends amongst all the pictures – turns out we’re better at finding our friends than finding ourselves!
Is November 20th too early? Not in this classroom!
Always the biggest smiles at break times – maybe because there’s not a worksheet in sight?
See you Monday!
