We have begun to learn about fractions and what better way to to start exploring this than to use chocolate!
Over the past 2 weeks we have been learning about time. We have been looking at how to tell the time using a digital and an analogue clock. Time can be a bit tricky to learn so any practise at home would be very helpful.
To kick off our Chocolate topic we had a chocolate tasting! We focused on using our 5 senses to describe the smell, texture and smell.
I hope you have all had a lovely and restful Christmas and New Year. In Swordfish class we are excited to be starting our new topic - Chocolate!
Archaeologist Julian Richards came to talk to us about Stonehenge. Julian set us a challenge to see if we could build rafts strong enough to support the giant stones needed to build Stonehenge. We found that although we were successful in building a raft that would float, we were unable to build a raft to carry such a heavy stone!
Mrs Miles challenged us to bake and build our very own Stonehenge!
We were lucky enough to have a visitor from the Stone Age come and tell us all about life in the Stone Age.
We have been studying cave art from the Stone Age and decided to have a go at creating our own - it proved to be very messy!
We are very excited for the start of our Stone Age topic! Please see our topic map for details of the topic.
