Autumn Term Learning 

Literacy 

In literacy, we worked in small groups and acted out a scene from Journey to Johannesburg as part of our stories from other cultures topic. Here is a slideshow.

Design and Technology 

In DT we investigated how parts move by looking at moving story books. Here is a slideshow.

Science

For our topic on bubbles, we made sherbet using icing sugar, bicarbonate of soda and citric acid.  We tried to make it sweeter, fizzier and more sour.  We tasted them and evaluated them and then drew bar charts to display our data, linking the topic to maths.
