This term our topic is 'The Human Body'. We will be spending time learning about our body.
Over Christmas we all spent time creating our own human body pieces for the classroom!
On Thursday 19th March we created our operation games! In our tables we created a plan of what our games would look like. We painted our boards with our own designs, created circuits for our buzzers to work and parts to go in the middle of our bodies!
In Geography we have been looking at having a wider understanding of Geographical terms. We decided to have a go at making the Geographical terms using our artistic skills.
In Art we have tie-dyed cushions for our new library. Everyone's pattern were different depending how they pulled or twisted the outer cushion and where they placed the elastic bands.
On Thursday 6th February we had our Science workshop! We made our own set of teeth, created a digestive system, looked at our fingerprints and conduct experiments about keeping our bodies healthy.
In English we have been writing explanation texts about the digestive system. We are going to be writing explanation texts about the skeleton, nervous system, muscles and our organs over the next few weeks. Once we have written them all we are going to create a book containing all the information about the Human Body.
In Maths this term we are going to be looking at Fractions! We have started looking at equivalent fractions, tenths and hundredths and we're moving on to looking at adding and subtracting fractions!
In Science we are carrying on looking at the Human Body. We have been using our Science lessons to gain more knowledge for our writing in our English lessons. We are also conducting a bread experiment and looking at how quickly germs spread!

On Friday 15th November we joined in with Joe Wicks' Children in Need Big Morning Move alongside the Year 5's. It was a great way to enjoy a quick morning wake up! Scan our QR codes to watch the Big Morning Move!
Thursday 3rd October was National Poetry day! In our groups we all read the poem 'Storm Dragon'. We spent time practising and then filmed it using the iPad's and the green screen! Scan our QR codes to have a listen to our poems!
In Art we have made pro-types of dragons eyes! Keep you eyes peeled for our next lot of dragon eyes!
On Monday 23rd September we visited Layer Marney Tower! We had a great day learning about Vikings and Anglo Saxons!
Over the summer holidays, we all worked hard on creating our own Viking Shield!
