Li Chao visited this morning to teach us how to count to ten in Manadarin. We also learned the gestures for the numbers and had a go at writing them on our whiteboards.
Today during Science, we learned about air resistance. We worked in groups to make our own parachutes and look forward to completing our experiment next week.
“Air resistance is a type of friction in the air.” Grace
“Sadly, our parachute broke when we were making it.” Gavin
Have a look at our curriculum overview for term 4.

Today we took part in a STEM Challenge. We had to use the resurces available to make and race a balloon powered car. Before constructing, we worked in groups to make a plan for the best possible design. We then worked together to construct the car. When testing the cars to see if they would travel, we had to make last minute changes. We had a few balloons popping too!
Well done to the winning group and runners up.
Today we took part in a Science Fun Run. The Sports Leaders put out obstacles and we had to answer some Science questions to move onto the next obstacle.
” I got really muddy because I fell over when running around the MUGA”- Jonathan
“We thought it was fun because we went through different obstacles”- Ruqqiya and Dhanya
“It was hard, but I kept going!”- Katie
Well done to Alexander and Anna who both received a Head Teacher’s Award this morning at assembly.
Alexander has been focussing on using paragraphs within his writing and checking over his work to ensure that it makes sense. With this in mind, he wrote an amazing conclusion to ‘Stranded in the Jungle’ last Thursday.
Anna has worked hard at converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa. She is confident in doing this now.
This week we have been learning how to convert improper fractions into mixed numbers and vice versa.
“It was difficult but I followed my success criteria to get to the answer.”- Anna
“It was quite hard but I got there in the end.”- Grace
“It was fun because I know my multiplication and division facts”- Arnav
Well done to the children that secured a speaking part for our school show.
Alasdair, Arnav, Maya, Jonathan, Ethan, Emma, Shravan, Dhanya and Safa, I look forward to seeing you perform on the stage during our practises.
