Our topic this term is...
We’ll be studying the history of our school and the surrounding area including the docks. We’ll develop map reading skills, and link this to our work on coordinates in maths. As keen artists, we’ll also create sketches and mixed-media art work inspired by the local area. In science, we will be learning about food and eating and investigate local food webs.
Latest Class Four News
We learned about Fair Trade as part of Fair Trade Fortnight. Check out our posters (and some of us hard at work producing them!) in the gallery below.
This term in Maths we have focussed on measures - mass, distance, money and time. We have solved real-life problems using measures and applied our addition and subtraxction skills to new contexts.
Keep practising by:
telling the time (using the 24 hour clock if you can)
adding up money and finding change when you go shopping
totalling and scaling-up masses (weight) when you cook.
These online games all use the same skills, and are tablet-friendly:
We investigated the effect of different liquids on egg shells, as we know that egg shells are similar to tooth enamel. We discvered that on its own, sugar doesn't damage enamel (although cola does stain!). It is acid, as produced by sugar-loving bacteria in our mouths, that dos the most damage. We tested the pH (how acidic) each liquid was using strips of litmus paper. Vinegar (acetic acid) was stronger than orange juice (citric acid) and the the weakest acid as apple juice (malic acid). Can you guess which one damaged the egg shells the most?
Our Homework Projects
Class Four created some amazing Circus-themed projects for their homework, inspired by our work around 'Leon and the Place Between'. We had a fantastic afternoon sharing, playing and admiring everyone's fantastic efforts. Here are a selection of some of the children's wonderful work. Well done, Class Four!
