Excel Session - Learning about Focus and Perseverance

Safe Use of Medicines

 

We were visited by two school nurses to learn about the safe use of medicine. We looked at things that were safe to use in the body and items that are not safe at all. We learnt about not using anybody else's medication including inhalers and to make sure we have the correct dose given by an adult.

 

Our Bayeux Tapestry

We used TEAMWORK to create a class Bayeux Tapestry. We drew, coloured and cut-out parts of the tapestry and glued them to a long hessian sheet. We used markers to decorate the borders.

Celt Day

We have had a fantastic day learning all about the Celts and our class looked incredible.

 

We wrote a diary about the day in the life of a Celt. We also finished our  wool weaving and celtic knot designs.

 

We learnt about their diet and homes they lived in. The smallest roundhouse had a diameter of 5m and the largest a diameter of 15m. We chalked two roundhouses on the playground to see how big they would have been.

 

We are now looking forward to the rescheduling of the Theatre company and meeting Boudicca.

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs

Today we carried out the trial of Alexander T. Wolf.

We were split into groups, the wolf, the defence and prosecution team.

After each team had questioned the Wolf, we became the jury and decided if the wolf was guilty or not guilty.

 

Our Verdict was GUILTY.

The first reading token draw has taken place and we have a winner!

Healthy Teeth

We carried out an investigation  to find out which drinks damage our teeth. We put eggshells in different drinks and observed the results. The vinegar softened the eggshells whereas coca cola turned it brown. Water and milk had no effect on the eggshells.

 

We also looked at how to brush our teeth effectively.

Take a look at our Teeth slideshow.

India

This term we are learning all about India. We have looked at the climate and mountain ranges. Wrote a postcard from the top of Mount Everest and created Mendhi hand patterns and elephants.

 

India Information Group Posters

We worked in groups of 5/6 to create an information poster all about India. Each person researched and took notes about one element like food, transport or education. We then used TEAMWORK to create a group poster.
