We took part in the Oxford Big Science Event. The theme was 'Travel'. We asked lots of questions and designed investigations to answer them. Some of our questions were:
Do people with the longest arms balance for the longest time?
Do people with longer legs jumps further?
Does more water travel further?
Does a run up help you throw further?
Finding change in Maths this week!
Squirrel class really enjoyed doing their art outside in the willow classroom.
After reading Jim and the Beanstalk in literacy, we made our own glasses like Jim did for the giant. It was tricky, but fun.
Squirrel Class recently visited Waddesdon Manor. We had a fantastic time even though the weather was not good. We saw some amazing things in the manor including a priceless elephant statue. We made some Indian mandalas in the afternoon.
We have been looking at capacity work in our Maths lessons. We measured water in containers and compared the capacity.
We had a very windy day and had lots of fun watching the leaves fly.
Squirrel Class and Year 3 told the story of Rama and Sita during a Diwali Drama workshop. Working together they played different roles to show the story and freeze framed different parts of it throughout the session.
Working together we put our overalls on so that we could make divali light pots with clay and put patterns on them.
