In English, we have been writing to develop characters, settings and plot. We have explored the story ‘Bill’s New Frock’ by Anne Fine.
Bill wakes up one morning and is treated as if he is a girl! He learns a number of lessons throughout the day about different expectations, experiences and gender stereotypes.
We looked at the events of the story from Bill's perspective and explained to our friend the kind of day Bill had at school. We used the story’s structure and features to innovate and write our own stories.
In maths, we have been working on a range of different learning focuses including addition and subtraction problems and time. We looked at how to convert time from both 12 and 24 hour clocks and then answered our own problem questions.
Are these times 12 hour or 24 hour? Can you convert them?
In RE, we have been learning about Hinduism. We learnt the traditional story of 'The 6 Blind Men and the Elephant.'
Each man had a different idea about what an elephant would look like.
We then discussed why Hindu's might have different ideas and beliefs about God.
In CCCS we identified and analysed a range of different fruit drinks available in the supermarket.
We then designed and made our own using a range of different fruits. Our aim was to keep them as natural and healthy as possible.
Our work is now on display in school!
In science, we have been learning about sound.
Telephones are used to transmit the sound of people's voices over long distances. When you speak into a telephone, the sound energy in your voice is turned into electrical energy, which is transported down a wire to the other person's telephone. The electrical energy is converted back into sound energy, and they can hear what you are saying!
Our challenge was to create a string telephone that will transmit the sound of our voice over a distance.
