We used classification keys to identify living things in our pond.
We were given a task to help design a set of ear defenders. We really enjoyed this activity and managed to show many of the Blackrod Values during the lesson such as: success, determination, creativity, optimism, knowledge and uniqueness
What's on your playlist?
This term we are learning about sound. So far we have learned how your ear works, we have researched which animals have good hearing and we have researched about Helen Keller.
We have been using sign language to sign our names.
HOW COULD WE SURVIVE WITHOUT WATER?
(States of matter)
This term we are looking at solids, liquids and gases. We will be doing lots of investigations during this topic!
THE WATER CYCLE
We have been performing a song about the water cycle. We have learnt about condensation, precipitation and evaporation.
EVAPORATING PUDDLE INVESTIGATION
We made careful observations of evaporation over a day. We found out as the day went on the puddles got smaller.
We have been carrying out an investigation to find out which material would be the best to keep Mr Dryburgh's hot chocolate warm.
The other group had to investigate which material would be the best to stop the ice from melting. We found out tinfoil was the best in both investigations and this is because it is a thermal insulator.
We have been using a thermometer to accurately measure the temperature of water.
HOW COULD WE SURVIVE WITHOUT ELECTRICTY FOR ONE DAY?
We have been on an electricity hunt around school to identify mains electric and battery devices. We have also been making our own circuits.
FROM CHEW TO POO
(Animals, including humans)
During this topic we will be learning all about teeth and their functions. We will also be finding out about the digestive system and the journey our food goes on through our bodies. This could get messy!
