Our superb Super Star for week 2 of term 3!

 

Welcome back to Term 3 – Despite a very short first week, we have started our new topics – ‘Trades of Hope’ and Electricity.

 

We started to read our new text for the term, ‘Gregory Cool.’ This story is set in Tobago and so far we have focussed on who the main characters are and what they are like.

 

In maths we have been learning to tell the time using analogue clocks. Next week we will learn to convert these in to digital times using 12 and 24 hour clocks.

Our first Class Superstar for this term is Harley for impressing Miss Green in maths lessons, where he is applying his knowledge really well to solve different problems.

Headteacher stickers were also awarded to Amira and Amy for demonstrating a cheery attitude when at school.

Our Church School Value for this term is - Friendship!

This term our Bible story is Jesus commandment to his friends’ (John 15. v12-17).

We have really enjoyed learning about the Romans this term. We have compared Romans with Celts, identified the Roman Empire on a map and discussed why they invaded Britain. We have researched Roman gods and goddesses and learnt about the Celtic rebellion led by Boudicca. We had a great time on our Roman day, dressing up as Roman soldiers and gladiators or wearing togas. We met Nigrinus and enjoyed trying to identify the different artefacts that he had brought with him. We also learnt about the strength of the Roman army and had the chance to use the shields that we made to create the famous ‘Tortoise’ formation that the Romans used in battle. We had the opportunity to sample popular Roman foods – like dates, figs, olives, ciabatta bread and grapes – some of these were more popular than others!

 

In English, we have learnt about instructional writing. We made an edible Roman road and wrote a sequence of instructions of how we did this. Then we ate our road, which was delicious!

We have also enjoyed reading and working with our texts of ‘Vesuvius Poovius’ and ‘Roodica the Rude,’ looking at character and setting descriptions and story writing.

 

We have linked some of our maths work to our Roman topic as well, as we have learnt to read and combine Roman numerals to make different numbers and have also used them in mathematical calculations. In the final week of our topic, we were challenged to use five colours to create Roman mosaics that had vertical, horizontal or diagonal lines of symmetry and sometimes even all three!

In our science lessons, we have been learning about our teeth and how important it is to care for these. We started by looking in mirrors at our teeth and identifying the four different types of teeth that we have and their positions within our mouths.

Picture 1

Picture 5

We also carried out an investigation to find out the effect different liquids can have on our teeth.

We placed five eggs, because the shell is made from a similar material to the enamel covering our teeth, in to different liquids and left them for a week. We discovered that water and milk are the healthiest drinks for us, as nothing at all happened to the eggs we placed in to these two liquids. The cola, however, badly stained the egg-shell with brown patches and these stains could not be removed. The egg left in the orange juice came out covered with hard clumps of sugar, which had collected on the egg-shell over the course of the week. But the liquid that caused the egg to change the most was vinegar. When we took this egg out of the liquid, after just on week, we were amazed to see that the whole shell had disintegrated and disappeared, the egg had become much bigger and was soft and squidgy like a bouncy ball!

Following this experiment, we created posters, to encourage people to take care of their teeth.

 

Other highlights of term 1 in 4G were our week of daily exercise, using the Joe Wicks videos, although by the end of the week, we had a few aching body parts shown by our facial expressions!
