Spring Term Learning 

History

We made our own Top Trump style cards on Greek Gods and Goddesses.  Then we had fun playing with them.

Science

We researched different animals and found out how they had adapted to their environment over time.

We also investigated how shadows can change depending on how close the light source is to the object.

In Maths, we played a fraction, decimal and percentage game.  The winner was the one who had the greatest value.

Autumn Term Learning

Literacy/History

In history we researched facts about Anne Frank and her life ready to write our own biographies of her.  In one lesson we had to sequence a number of key dates into chronological order.

Maths

Volume

In Maths we used unit cubes to explore different volumes.

 

Adding Decimals

In Maths we used digit cards to play a game with our partner.  The winner was the person who had the greatest total.

Design and Technology 

In DT we designed mobile phone cases using felt material.  We learnt different stitches to help us with our sewing.
