Half Term Information Spring 2 2023

This half term has been so much fun.  We have learnt all about the features of castles and even got to make our own moving castle.  As part of Design and technology we explored a range of sliders and levers and then incorporated these into our own design.  


In Science we learnt all about our senses.  It was interesting trying out new flavours and smells.  We also went on a sound walk around school, using our careful listening skills to identify the sounds we could hear. 


We really enjoyed using the weighing scales to find the mass of a range of objects in the classroom.  We compared the weights of objects and used non-standard units of measure and grams to say how much things weighed. 


Using the i-pads we created our own animated stories.  We explored sound effects, backgrounds and moving transitions.  We also had a go at using the new Maths programme ‘Numbots’.  All children have their own log ins and we are excited to see who can climb the leader board.

Children’s comments:


“I liked making my castle and making levers.”

“It tasted sour.”

“I liked it when we went outside and listened to the wind and birds on our sound hunt”
