Writing poems, singing, counting meerkats and designing chimp havens, our Year 1s have been a busy...
What a lovely week to finish the half term!This week we have been learning even more about...
Reception, I can't believe we have made it to the half way point of our school year already...
In year 3 this week...
What a great start to our week is was on Tuesday. Our sun dances must have paid off as we were able to spend the day carrying out our shadow clock investigation!
First, we organised ourselves into groups and made sure we had all our equipment. By ten o'clock, our shadow clocks were ready and we began marking shadow lengths and times. Each hour we went out on to the field and waited for a sunny spell. We carefully marked shadow lengths and recorded results. It was such fun to be watching what happened as the earth turned!
On Wednesday, we looked carefully at our data and Miss Lake made a graph of one group's results. We were surprised to see a trend appear on the graph and we were able to use this trend to make reliable predictions about how long the shadow would have been by 4 or 5 o'clock.
In maths, we learnt how to read scales so that we can make our own graphs accurately next week using the data we have gathered!
In Literacy, we completed diaries in character and then began work on metaphors and similes. Today, we wrote descriptions of Native Americans using this idea. We came up with great descriptions and Miss Lake was very impressed! Next week, we will focus on descriptive writing using our ideas from today and present our work for display.
We will also complete our totem pole designs and make keys from clay.
