Fair testing structures
Which structure would be the strongest in an earthquake? We carried out a fair test to find out.
Class 7 were life models in Art today! They recreated the positions of the Pompeii victims, from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius and sketched one another in their art book! We have some artists and models in the house! Watch this space!
Class 8 were debating whether a cat or a dog would be the best pet. We are writing balanced arguments about this soon, but started off reading texts for and against having cats or dogs as pets. We then made our own minds up and created a 'human bar-chart'. Looks like dogs are more popular at the moment!
Cat or Dog?

Class 7 have finally finised their carts and tested them out today on different surfaces!

Class 7's performances of Moses and the burning Bush.
In Class 7, within RE, the children have been learning about the religion Christianity and different stories within the Bible. The children then, to show that they understood the story of Moses and the burning bush, performed different parts of the story in front of the class, in small groups.
Class 8 tested different materials for Mrs Slippy. We think the silk will make the best mat for her new slide.
Class 7's ramp and forces investigation!
Today in Science, class 7, had fun by investigating forces such as: speed and friction! We used different materials and recorded their distance and speed down a ramp!
We have been working on place value activities and have used HTO equipment, counters and number squares.
Year 3 have been enjoying Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett. Today we held a conscience alley to help Sunny decide how to deal with the fact that he felt that life at home was too crowded. Everyone gave Sunny advice about what to do. In the end half of Class 8 thought he should get away for a while, and half felt that he should stay at home and try to deal with his problem by talking to people, finding a quiet place for himself or asking for some time alone.
We visited Hardy Park to find out about forces - we weren't just playing - honestly!
In the first week back, class 7, have been enjoying looking at number place value and putting numbers on a number line. The children all worked together at the start of the lesson, with counters, as they counted up in tens and tested one another on their number bonds.
