Measuring and comparing

In Maths recently, we have been practising how to measure accurately in centimetres and metres. Today during our Forest School lesson, we used these skills to measure how tall we are. We then decorated our silhouettes using natural materials.

Investigating plants!

In Science this term, our new topic is plants. We began our topic, by discussing what we already know about plants. Next, we talked about the different parts of plants. This week we focused on exploring roots and discussed the different types of roots and what the main functions of roots are. We even got to study some roots, that Mrs Bramley had brought in from her garden. In order to investigate whether having more or less space helps a plant grow, we put one plant in a big pot and one in a smaller pot. Over the next couple of weeks, we will water and measure the plants, in order to see how the amount of space impacts on how plants grow.

Family trees!

Over the Easter holidays, we created family trees based on our family or a significant person. During one of our Topic lessons, we really enjoyed sharing them with our friends. Next, we worked in teams to recreate a royal family tree, to show how Queen Victoria is related to our current queen.

Timeline activity!

In order to help us understand when the Victorian period was, we worked together to create a timeline of British history. Our challenge was to put periods of history and a series of significant events in the correct order.

Monarchy hunt!

We kicked off our new topic ‘The Victorians’, by going on an exciting monarchy treasure hunt around the forest. Early Monday morning, Miss Furlow hid all of the British monarchs from the Tudor period to Queen Elizabeth II. Our challenge was to locate each monarch and write them down in order of their reign and record an interesting fact about each king or queen.

Basketball Tournament!

In PE last term, we worked hard to enhance our gymnastics and basketball skills. We explored the different types of passes, practised dribbling and developed our defending skills in our basketball lessons. At the end of the term, we practised bringing all of the skills together in a basketball tournament.
