Today we went on our class trip to the explorer dome. We had a brilliant time learning all about light in preparation for our science topic next half term! See some of the children’s highlights below:
“I liked it when they shone the lights then suddenly switched it to different coloured, rainbow lights!” MP
“I liked crawling through the tunnel to enter the explorer dome!” AP
“I liked seeing the images of the sun.” BN
“I liked seeing the mirrors on the disco ball reflecting light.” SW
“I liked when the dome went dark and there were thunder sounds and lightning striking down!” MH
“I liked it when I got to hold a green block that made the light a green colour.” XC
In Dahl Class this week we have been celebrating film week. We enjoyed watching Charlie and the Chocolate factory and linking it to our English topic on play scripts. We made character fact files through art, thinking about character’s personal traits and how we would express those in a play. Next week we will be writing our own play scripts of ‘what happened next’ in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory… watch this space to see our finished work soon!
In Dahl class we’ve been turning into Scientists to explore our IPC topic, ‘How Humans Work‘. We’ve been asking fantastic questions and researching facts to find out about the various systems that make up the Human body and how they work.
We have learnt all about the Digestive System, including the different parts of the system and their functions. Miss Roberts also did a visual model of the digestive system using broken up foods and tights – to represent the intestines – to bring our learning to life.
In English, Dahl class have been working on explanation texts and exploring their important features. We’ve composed some brilliant explanation texts all about the digestive process. Take a look at some of our work.
Miss Roberts would also like to thank the parents/guardians that have helped their child/children in their spare time to make some amazing pictures and diagrams of the Human body to share in class – We’ve loved having Digestive Dave and Skylar the Skeleton (to name a few) to help us with our learning!
