Our class events

Introducing our maths passports- Spring term 

In the first spring term, we introduced our multiplication passports. The chidlren are really enjoying gaining stamps to reward their progress in maths! 

Science: Investigating global warming in our 'Caring for our planet' topic in science- Autumn term 2 2023

In science we are learning about the environment. We focused on global warming and carried out an investigation into the effects of greenhouse gases. We set up an investigation with 2 environments resembling planet earth with an ice cube in each. One container was covered in cling film (to resemble the increasing thickness of the ozone layer), the other was uncovered. We used stop clocks to time which environment the ice melted fastest in. We then wrote a conclusion. 

               

Maths: representing numbers -Autumn term 2023

In maths, every Wednesday, we have a target number which we must represent in different ways. We use a range of manipulatives including, bead strings, part whole models, cubes and dienes. We also represent the target number in number sentences using the 4 calculations.
