What an amazing few weeks it has been. We have worked on place value and mental strategies in Maths lessons and have been writing narratives about familiar settings in English. Our topic has been exciting, as we have gone outside and been hunter-gatherers and archaeologists, excavating bones. Last week we lay down under our tables and turned off the lights to recreate the atmosphere of a cave, and made our own amazing cave art.
In Science, we have been exploring rocks and have learned about the rock cycle. Today we explored the properties of different types of rock, trying to answer the ‘Big Question’, which type of stone is best used for a kitchen work top and why?
All this term, we have been reading The Boy at the Back of the Class, and have learned about the lives of refugees. The children have been so engaged and there have been some amazing discussions and insights shared. They have also all eaten a pomegranate for the first time, as this was important in the book.
