Summer 1 Half Term Information 2021

It has been lovely to welcome the children back into school. The children enjoyed learning about the history of trains and wrote some fantastic articles about Robert Stephensons Rocket. We also read the Iron Man, which inspired us to create our mechanical monsters in DT. 

 

We worked really hard on fractions this term, this included finding fractions of amounts and shapes, equivalent fractions, and solving puzzles and problems involving fractions. 

 

In science we have been exploring forces, we have especially enjoyed using the magnets to investigate how many paperclips we could pick up. 

 

To finish our half term we were able to enjoy a variety of activities as part of stem week, this included an architecture workshop, a renewable energy workshop, and lots of fun was had making propellers, much like those used on Mars.
