Hi everyone and welcome back to spring term 2. This week we have been finding out about the life of Chief Sitting Bull of the Native American Tribe the Sioux. Did you know he was born in the present day South Dakota where he fought for freedom and the land. He lived from 1831 -1890 and next week we will complete a whole biography about his life and exploits.
Today we have started a new topic in Science about Light. We were given pieces of card, a torch and some blue tac and told to show how light travels in straight lines. As you can see from our pictures we struggled a little until we were given a clue about how to get the light through the card. Can you see from the pictures how we did this?
What a wonderful day we had on Tuesday as we had DT all day. We linked our DT to our topic of North America and made dream catchers.
Planning each step was essential to making sure we got a good end result. Some of us found it really hard to tie a knot but we all had so much fun designing and making our own dream catchers. Mrs Holt came in on Wednesday was amazed at how spectacular they all looked.
Well we've learnt about longitude and latitude this week in geography - very interesting! We have also learnt where the tropics and continents located.
We had a great time in science yesterday afternoon. We made lots of different electrical circuits and investigated how we could make the bulbs glow more brightly. Have a look at our pictures; you can see we are having fun!
Already into week 2 and we are well under way with fractions, decimals and percentages! Finishing off our week with problem solving.
Did you know the national animal of North America is the bison? We do! We have compared the US with the UK and made a fact file.
Sports hall athletics was great fun. Some of us went to Debden Park and competed against other school in a variety of events.
Happy New Year and welcome back!
