We've been enjoying our gymnastics sessions this term. Take a look at the snaps below:
We have been learning how to balance, do forwards rolls, hold headstands, do cartwheels, sit in straddle, sit in pike and SO much more. The children have made so much progress!
As part of our Design and Technology learning, we are exploring how to create and design our own biscuit packaging. Below are a few pictures of some of our exploratory nets. Stay tuned for further pics!
We now understand that packaging has a variety of purposes! We have learned to construct 3D structures from nets and as part of this, we have learned how to mark out, cut, score and assemble! Tricky stuff!
Next time you are eating your cereal, getting a tissue from the box or even taking a biscuit out of the packaging, take a look at the design, the shape, the logos and all the extra detail! You'll never look at packaging in the same way!
In Science, we combined History to investigate why some coins are magnetic! We decided to create a timeline of all the coins and then find out which were magnetic or not. Fascinating finds! Do you know why they aren't magnetic!?
Instead of investigating friction the old fashioned way, we decided to go shoeless... well some of us! We took off our shoes to find out how the different surfaces affected the force required to move our shoe! Good job it's not smellyvision on here.
We've done lots of investigating, learnt in lots of ways and demonstrated our understanding too...even through playing the game SPORTY FORCES!
We can't wait to let Mr Newton know about everything we have learnt! Take a look at the letter below that inspired us to get learning!
As part of our Art learning, we have had the pleasure and unique opportunity that many schools don't get, of learning from the incredible Ms Plant. We created our own busts!! A lot of techniques were learnt and a lot of perseverence was required, but we are really proud of our creations. This will really help us to improve our drawn and collage portraits that we will continue to improve and also create throughout our exciting topic. Enjoy looking through the pictures below:
You would not believe the letters that we have been receiving. In History, we have only been in regular contact with .... THE MINIONS!!
Look at the artefacts below. What do you think their uses were? Who would have used them!?
We've been Historical Detectives... now it's your turn!
To understand just HOW LONG the Stone Age was, we created our own human timeline... We couldn't even finish it!
We have been learning about life in the Stone Age and how life developed over time... The overview of pictures below might help you to find out a few things for yourself! Incredible finds!
What do you think....? What can we work out about life in the Stone Age from this picture!?
We're really enjoying our enquiry about the life of Stone Age man. We can't wait to let the Minions know about all the skills and knowledge we have learnt!
During R.E sessions, we are learning about why the Bible is important to Christians. Why do you think the Bible is the best-selling book?
We have been learning about the links between parables in the Bible and how the messages can have an impact on the actions of believers. Take a look at the quotes below:
‘When life gives you lemons; make lemonade”
“If you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em’
‘Every cloud has a silver lining’
What do they mean? Which ones make YOU stop and think the most?
After looking at these quotes,we then looked at the parable of the Good Samaritan and WHO are neighbour REALLY is. Lots of our orignal answers changed after really exploring the meaning of the parable.
Our computing sessions have been very challenging! We're learning how to code and programme. We are busy creating our own ROCK BAND on Scratch!
Lots of measuring in Maths! We didn't realise how many skills it all invovled... especially measuring the perimeter!
Meeting an olympic athlete was most certainly inspirational. It was great to learn more about Water Polo and how discipline and responsibility are really important. Lewis Daly put us through our paces during our fitness session!
To mark the WW1 Centenary, we spent time in our History lessons reflecting on and learning about those involved in the wars. Some of us brought in relatives' personal belongings that they had with them during WW2.
Take a look at our whole school poppy which has every child in Flixton Primary School's fingerprint under the commemorative poem 'Flanders Fields'
OOOOARGHHHHHHH! Pirate Day!
