Today we were learning how to calculate time duration. We created our own questions to ask each other!
This afternoon we were learning all about different kinds of energy during science and how it is generated. We were learning that energy comes in the following forms:
- electrical energy
- solar energy
- magnetic energy
- sound energy
- personal energy
- connect energy
We used our bodies to demonstrate the different ways energy moves and is created and then we worked in groups to create posters about what we have learned and then we presented them to the class.
We had a great time this afternoon working on our team building skills when we were completing the tasks set up by Miss Maybury. We spoke before we took on the challenges about what makes good team work and here are some of our suggestions:
- don’t talk over each other
- be a good listener
- be polite
- try and include everyone
- treat others the way you would want to be treated when working in a team
- communicate clearly with one another
- be positive
All of these suggestions were clearly demonstrated during the challenges.
This morning we looked at budgeting and how to budget for a Christmas dinner. Each group had a different family to feed; some people had 7 in the family and others had only 4 and all had £100 to spend. We had to plan and calculate the total cost it would be to feed each family a full Christmas meal with a vegetarian there too! It was very eye opening to see how much Christmas does actually cost!
This morning we counted up the final takings for the Virgin Money Make £5 grow campaign and the year group made a fantastic profit of £599!!! Well done to everyone (including parents 🙂 ) who took part and spent lots of time at home making their wonderful crafts and games. Extra well done to “The Winter Wonders” who made the most profit of £92.80 .
This morning the Einsteins were using their knowledge of 3D shapes to construct 3D shapes from their nets. They were so proud of their nets they then wanted to create an quick imovie to show them off. Click the link below to watch the movie.
During PE this month we have been learning Scottish Dancing. So far we have learnt “The Flying Scotsman” and “The Virginia Reel”. Click on the video below to check out our moves.
This afternoon we worked in groups of 3 and 4 to write scripts. We were tasked with writing a short script to a short film (1 min in length) to show either what could happen to a civilian during the blitz or the journey of an evacuee to their new home. On Thursday we will use the green screens to film our scripts and then i movie to cut and edit our films.
This morning we held our first learning workshop. It was great to see so many relatives and we really enjoyed participating in the math games with them. We were teaching them how to play loop card fractions and then we had stations which showed off our knowledge of 3D shape, angles and multiplication strategies.
