Circuits

This morning we worked our whole bodies during a very active P.E. session! We worked at different stations. There were 16 areas. We worked at them for a minute and then Mrs Horne blew the whistle and we moved on. Mrs Horne also chose partners that were working hard and they got to have a minute on the trampoline in the middle of the circuit.  For some stations one person worked for half the time and then Mrs Horne clapped and we swapped.

Annie liked the hula hoop as she is quite good at it so it is fun. Maya wasn’t keen on passing the football, which shocked a lot of the class. Alexander E really likes football so he loved that station. Samantha enjoyed Around the World, passing a weight around her legs in a figure of eight, and then round her body, as she likes lifting and is strong. Ruby found the press-ups really got her body working and made her warm. Hannah found the press-ups hard. Ethan said the shuttle-runs made his heart pound in his chest. Gavin said the star jumps made his heart race the most. Emma’s favourite minute was when she had a turn on the trampoline.

Katie enjoys circuits as she thinks it would keep her fit and healthy. Alasdair said it was fun as they got to do lots of different exercises at the one time. Emma said it was good because stations that worked you hard were mixed in with stretching circuits so you kept energy to keep going.

Tomorrow’s Inventors

We have been working in our Tomorrow’s Inventors groups, discussing the problems our family and friends encounter everyday and deciding which we are going to focus on when designing a solution. We’ll keep you posted!

 

 

Super Skills

Today we continued our Super Skills lessons. Mrs Horne’s group are creating clips. We look forward to seeing the finished work at the end of the block!

Festive Slime

We continued our chemical reactions topic today by investigating slime. We carried out a fair test to discover whether using more glue makes the slime more bouncy. It definitely does! We also developed our report writing skills as we conducted the experiment.

Homework 25th November, Due Friday 29th November

Spelling – Identify and spell words using the spelling rules for Week 8 and 9 words on spellingcity.com. See previous homework for further details.

Reading Passport – Begin your Reading Passport by completing your basic information, writing about the book you are currently reading, setting yourself 3 interesting reading challenges and writing about your den building challenge from last week.

Numeracy – Group measure task sheet. Complete this work in your numeracy homework jotter. If calculations are included please show working as discussed in class.

Science – Be on the look out for chemical reactions you may see everyday. Clues that a chemical reaction may have taken place, rather than just a physical reaction, include colour changes, gas released or texture change. At least one new substance must be formed and usually you can not go back to the original state. We discussed some examples and exceptions this week in class. Can you write four more in your numeracy jotter under your maths work?

Reading to P2

This morning we read Fairy Stories we wrote with Mrs Jamieson to Mrs Wallace’s class. They really enjoyed our stories!

Dancing Raisins

Dancing Raisins

We first got a beaker then we added 200ml of water. Next we put 10 raisins into the water after that we dropped 1 Alka-seltzer. After that everything started to bubble. At first the raisins sunk to the bottom but then it floated up and down.
