Collecting And Organising Information

This morning in Literacy, we have been retrieving key facts about D-day. D-day was the invasion of Normandy, it happened on the 6th June , allied forces of Britain, America, Canada and France attacked German forces on the coast of Normandy.We can organise information into paragraph bad use subheadings to organise information.

 

Developing Farming Knowledge

This afternoon we have been researching information to develop our understanding of farming and agriculture, we have been looking at what the different forms of land use over the 4 seasons are.

 

Do you know what the different uses of land are during each season?

Book Character Day

Today we have dressed up as a character from our class author, Michael Foreman. Our class book is War Boy, which is about a little boy’s experience of life during WW2. Did you know Michael Foreman is an author and illustrator?

Which book character did you dress up as today?

Today using Sphero we continued to develop our coding skills by using block code to code a possible route the soldiers would have travelled during World War 2.

How have used block code?

Cooking

This afternoon we have been cooking pancakes , the ingredients we have used is eggs, wholewheat flour, a pinch of salt, milk and water.

Method

  1. Mix all the wet ingredients together.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together.
  3. Once you have mixed the ingredients, slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients to create a stiff batter then continue add the rest.Beat it well until smooth.
  4. Add a little bit of margarine into the pan and wait until it s bubbling.
  5. Pour in the batter and cook until both sides of the batter are brown.

We had such fun cooking our pancakes.

What do you like on your pancakes?

Testing a Hypothesis

 

This afternoon Class 8 have tested the hypothesis for a science experiment, we have used electrical equipment to conduct our experiment and record our findings, the experiment proved adding 2 batteries to the circuit made the bulbs shine brighter.

What would you have added to the circuit to make the bulb shine brighter?

Dilemma Plan

This afternoon in topic , we created our own dilemma plan on how to handle a  situation on bullying. We did a negative and positive response to the scenario   and this helped us understand the importance of manners and being polite and kind to one another.

How would you help someone who was getting bullied?

Fractions

This morning, in maths our learning objective was to find fractions of amounts. We thought about how we find fractions of amounts in everyday life, for example, when we cook, we find different fractions of amounts. To find a fraction of an amount, we need to use our division and multiplication skills.

Have you found a fractions of an amount cooking this week?

 

 

Using Sphero

Today in class 8 we have been using Sphero to do coding, first of all we worked out the difference in miles between Countries the soldiers would have travelled over during World War 2 an completed it in our books. Using block code we created  a possible  journey the soldiers may have took.

Do you know which Countries the soldiers travelled over during World War 2?

Creating a report

 

This afternoon we have been looking at the Jewish Faith and researched The Holocaust during World War 2, once we had gathered our information we created a report on the information we had found.
