Rock detectives…

We have been very busy carrying out experiments and observations in our science lessons this week. We have enjoyed looking at which rocks are permeable by putting them in water to test them and then recording our findings. It was very exciting to see some of the rock samples covered in bubbles! We enjoyed getting our hands dirty and looking at different types of soil as we found out what it was made of. Using the lego, we made models to show the many different layers of soil. We then used the Chromebooks to research which soil should be used for growing different plants.

We have started a new unit of work in English linking to our history topic. We have enjoyed reading Stone Age Boy – a tale about a young boy who goes back in time and meets Om and her Stone Age family. We made some excellent predictions about what would happen and even used our retrieval and inference skills to unpick the story. We can’t wait to go on our own adventure back in time next week on Thursday 17th October during our Stone Age Day. We have lots of crafty activities to get stuck into! Remember you can come to school dressed as someone from the Stone Age.

New learning logs have been sent home with a very exciting competition we will be entering (due Wednesday 23rd October). Maths homework this week is an addition challenge – who will find the biggest score? Remember to bring your reading records every day as we are now aiming for 100%!!

Special mentions this week go to Harry, Yahya, Arjun and Jenna. Well done!

Have a wonderful weekend,

Miss Ellis and Miss Chambers
