Today was the launch of Art Week and the theme this year is looking at things differently with a focus on science. We met ‘Chemical Cress’ in assembly who showed some exciting experiments and we learnt that gas needs to expand.
After assembly, Mrs Johanson told us that we’re going to focus on space this week so we started to research lots of space related facts as well as learning a song to remember the order of the planets. We’re very excited for the space dome tomorrow.
Then we went outside to see if we could make ‘space rockets’ using small containers, water and effervescent vitamin tablets. We predicted that the tablet would fizz in the water, creating a gas which escape so the lid would pop off the the container. It was great fun.
Yesterday in music we continued with the song called ‘Simama Kaa’ but we introduced instruments for each layer of the beat. We worked hard to remember when each instrument had to be played.
We have also completed our habitat homework which are fabulous.
Thank you for coming to watch our class assembly. I think you’ll agree that we were brilliant. Mrs Johanson has given us all success stamps for being confident and enthusiastic performers.
Afterwards we learnt about equivalent fractions and we know that one half is equivalent to two quarters.
Also this week we elected new class reps for school council and Mrs Brewis awarded two of us with pen licences.
This week we’ve been learning about fractions in maths and we know that equal parts are really important for fractions. Today Mrs Wilson took us outside in the sunshine to find thirds.
This afternoon we played team games in PE and we’ve been practising for our class assembly which is at 9:15 tomorrow.
