Volcanoes may have been one of the reason that dinosaurs became extinct so I reception we decided to learn more about them. We learnt lots of new words like magma, tectonic plates and dormant.
We decided as a class that we wanted to make our own volcanoes, so we became scientists for the day and since molten rock is hard to come by and far too dangerous, we decided to use vinegar, red food colouring and bicarbonate of soda instead to get a very similar effect.
The children wrote predictions about what might happen when we mixed all the ingredients together then we put on our goggles and tried the experiment. Why don’t you try it at home?
Sat down and ready for the show!
Rocking out at the O2 – the atmosphere is fantastic!
This week we have been using different resources to support our maths understanding. We have been using what we know to work out more challenging multiplication calculations. We used the smart TV to partition using counters, blocks and diennes.
The choir have arrived safely at the O2 for Young Voices. We are just beginning rehearsals and can’t wait for showtime!
The children have been exploring different ways of making different totals. They have been recording these in a variety of sums and using cuisenaire rods for support. Check out our work!
Larch Class had a teacher from Watford Schools Trust talk to them about what a parable is and how God believes in all people. We read the parable of The Prodigal Son and learnt a lot. Thank you Mrs Jordan!
Fir Class has been learning about graffiti artist, in particular, Banksy. We have found out that the artists make stencils at home and then use them to create ‘art’. We made our own stencils and made our own print. We also discussed whether graffiti was art or vandalism. What do you think?
Each class has been working hard to create some fabulous displays around our school. The theme was ‘Teamwork’ and they have certainly shown their teamwork skills in various ways with wonderful links to their learning.
