We are REALLY enjoying learning about what it means to be 'HeartSmart' Take a look at some of the things we have learnt, talked about and are learning to apply at home and at school. Don't forget there is a HeartSmart App that you can use at home - there are videos, activities and all sorts linked to the brilliance of being 'HeartSmart!' Stay brilliant :)
We first looked at what we could remember about our previous learning in history and what we thought history was!
Now, we have started our area of study.... EXPLORERS!
We're looking at the overall key question:
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A GREAT EXPLORER?
We've been finding out about why Ranulph Fiennes is in the Guinness World Records, what an explorer is and does, the differences and similarities between explorers and why Bessie Coleman and Amy Johnson's achievements are so remarkable.
We have been learning and exploring the use of everyday materials!
First, we needed to learn about the different materials and their properties.
As a class, we have come up with a number of questions about materials and we're keen to get researching, investigating and observing... After all, we're all scientists!
Through scientific investigations, we found that solid objects can change shape.
We have planned our next scientific test to solve the latest curtain debarcle...
After recapping to importance of online safety, we have been learning about Algorithms!
We've practised given a robot (our peer) algorithms and we soon learnt that if they weren't specific or in the correct order, things didn't turn out the way we wanted them to!
You applied our learning from our mistakes, to giving algorithms to our beebots! We look forward to continuing this!
So far in our R.E lessons, we have looked at, discussed, shared our thoughts, opinions and questions about different and many objects foudn in Jewish homes. We're looking forward to learning more Judaism, including Mezuzah, the story of Creation, Shabbat and Chanukah.
We have analysed a range of decorations, studied the way they might have been made, the materials used all in preparation to begin our designs for our own decorations. Before that, we will need to learn about a few different stitches.
We have been busy investigating the best and most appropriate material for a pair of curtains! No one wants to be woken up in the Summer because of the sun and dodgey curtains! If you're ever in doubt which material is best, we're here to help! Top tip: "OPAQUE materials are definitely the best" said 2H!
