Today, Mrs Richards had delivered another brilliant science lesson in which we learnt about rocks and soils. We learnt about the three types of soils and the differences between them. We conducted many experiments with them such as feeling all the types of soil and doing drip tests.
Recently, class 3 have been looking at Hinduism for RE. We have been focusing on Hindu shrines and their places of worship. We decided to create our own Hindu shrines.
Recently we had been learning about mental health and relaxation techniques. This included things such as breathing techniques.
Recently we looked at forces and and discussed how the Romans used forces in their siege weapons such as Trebuchets. Mrs Richards had made a mini version of a Trebuchet and showed us all how it worked and the forces used in it.
Today we held a Remembrance Service in school and held a period of silence. We reflected on the importance of learning from the past whilst thinking about how we can be peacemakers.
Today in English, we generated lots of ideas by have the stimuli of beautiful photos such as a sinking house. We then had to write sentences about said photos including lots of adjectives and time connectives.
On Friday we were getting to grips with subtraction using outdoor learning. We worked on representing calculations and solving them using objects from the grounds.
In RE this term we are learning about Baptism. If anyone in class has been baptised could you please send in some photos of the service so we can have a look at them as a class. We promise we will look after them. Many thanks, Mr Fox
