Chalk it!

We have been working on our observation skills in art using our natural objects we chose over Easter break!

We have previously used pencil techniques to draw our object and this week we looked at different types of techniques to make effective drawing when using chalk, 

 

Feel the Force!

We have spent the first few weeks back looking at different types of force. We started with Gravity and then moved on to Air Resistance.

In groups we performed an investigation to test the force of Air resistance. We did this by running the length of the playground and being timed, we then ran the length of the playground with a bin bag in tow. We found that we ran faster without the bin bag than with - therefore showing that the force of Air resistance was in action! 

We then recorded our results and presented bar charts and scatter graphs. 

Buddhism

Our topic in R.E this term is Buddhism. 

Our first lesson was learning who Siddartha was and how he came to be known as Buddha. We read the story of Siddartha and then answered questions based on the story showing what we understand. 

Using our new and improved ICT skills!

This year, I think we can all agree, has made us brush up on our ICT skills!

Now we are back in school we have continued to work on our ICT skills and make sure we use the laptops we are lucky to have in school. 

We used Power point to create a digital map that includes hyperlinks about tsunamis around the world.We worked in pairs to produce a map that showed the top 10 countries that have been devastated by tsunamis.

Mr Pyburn would be proud!

Introducing our new topic: Extreme Earth....

Structure of the Earth and Volcanoes

 

We started off out new topic 'Extreme Earth' by making sure we understood the structure of the earth we live on. We learned layer and then made our own layered Earth using compasses and paper. 

We started off looking at the extreme chaos Volcanoes can cause (we even got to watch a live one erupting in Iceland) We looked at how the volcanoes were formed and each part of the structure inside a volcano and then drew our own in our book.
