Westminster Cathedral

We went on a trip to Westminster Cathedral. We got to watch a Christmas Nativity and participate in the Christmas Caroles. We had lots of fun and loved going our first trip of the year.  

Maths

We had been given different number lunes, we had to draw them out and put in the missing value. We recognised that each interval needed to have equal amounts of space between them.

Science

In science, we are learning about friction. We investigated how friction occurs when two objects rub together. We used weights to measure how much friction would be needed for the shoe to move. We learnt what friction meant and how friction can stop objects moving. 

Geography

In geography, we have been learning about the different continents. In groups we researched the highest mountain in different continents. Once we researched it, we wrote how tall the mountain is and discussed how mountains are measured to know how tall they are. Then we discussed our findings as a whole class and identified as whole class where the different mountains are located on each continent.

African Drumming Workshop

We have been celebrating Black History Month, and today we got to play on the African drums called djembe. We learnt the base is in the middle and the tone is on the outer side of the drum. We learnt the history behind the drums and that the djembe drums has three spirits. The spirit of the animal from which the drum head was made, the spirit of the tree used to construct the hollowed-out shell and the spirit of the instrument maker. 

Assembly

We had a great time performing our Stone Age Assembly to our family and friend. We really enjoyed the song, and creating actions for it. 

Music

We are starting to learn to play the recorder in Music lessons.  We have been using percussion instruments to learn notation and rhythm.

Maths

We had been given different number lunes, we had to draw them out and put in the missing value. We recognised that each interval needed to have equal amounts of space between them.

Literacy

 

In Literacy we have been looking at ‘Hansel and Gretel’. We read the story, we discussed the different characters and acted out using expression to s how thoughts and feelings.

History

This half term, we will be looking at Stone Age, we started the lesson with discussing what the word history means and what we already know about history.

We cut out a timeline and had to put into chronological order of the events during the Stone Age to the Iron Age.
