In History we have been learning about the passage of time.
We have experienced school 100 years ago. It was very different to school now. Our teachers were strict because we weren't allowed to talk to our friends. We had to sit in rows and write lines which was very boring. If we were silly we had to wear a Dunce hat!
We also learnt about how children were entertained 100 years ago. We played with wobbly marble mazes and Tic-tac-toe. We found that we still play some of the same games, for example Dominoes and skipping.
In maths we have been busy learning about geometry. We have been on shape hunts around the school to identify familiar and unfamiliar shapes. We have created our own repeating patterns. We also learnt about positional language and created assault courses for the Bee-bots to navigate.
Key Stage 3 have been learning about Poland as Polish is our language of the term. We have baked traditional Kolaczki (jam pastry) and Pierniczki (spiced biscuit). We have looked at Polish culture and created our own traditional headdresses, and recreated our own Wycinanki (symmetrical paper cuttings).
This term we have been learning about materials in Science. We have sorted materials based on their properties, conducted experiments to find out which materials float and sink and started to look at reversible and irreversible changes.
