Which house will you be in?
This week, we have been looking at persuasive writing techniques and we have written to the Sorting Hat to persuade them to put us in a certain house. This afternoon, we had a Sorting Ceremony of our own! We all got to wear the Sorting Hat and read our letters...and then we were sorted into our chosen house! We get to wear a new badge for the rest of the topic showing which house we are in!
Through the Keyhole!
We've looked at the rooms of Hogwarts from a different perspectives today. We first looked at different rooms through a cut out keyhole and then we designed our own! We had to really think about what we would see through a keyhole! We really thought about lots of detail and colour.
Holy Trinity Booklet
We have collated all of our knowledge from our RE topic this term by creating mini booklets to share with Tattershall Church. We've given these to Reverend Sue to display for us! Go along to have a look!
WANTED! Harry, Ron and Hermione!
We've been creating our own character descriptions for the main characters of Harry Potter this week! We looked at JK Rowling's original text before having a go ourselves. We thought about using appearance and personality within our descriptions, as well as learning how to use embedded clauses! We hope you love our Wanted posters!
National Science Week - What if...the sea was gloopy like ketchup?
We pondered one of life's big questions today...what if the sea was gloopy like ketchup! We had a fantastic discussion and it was great to hear lots of ideas linking back to our previous topics! We had to think of a plus, minus and interesting point towards this question!
National Science Week - Can we inflate a balloon?
We have had a very exciting afternoon! We were set a challenge to inflate a balloon using bicarbonate of soda and vinegar! We put the balloon over the vinegar and poured in the bicarbonate of soda. This created a chemical reaction, which gave off a gas that filled the balloon!
How do smells get up our nose?
Today we started our investigation into how smells get up our noses. We lit a candle and waited until we could smell it!
Harry Potter Word Cloud
Today, some of the children used Word Cloud to present their vocabulary for Harry Potter's character. They added their adjectives and chose appropriate colours to suit his character.
World Book Day!
Today we have had a fantastic day celebrating our love of reading! We had a brilliant assembly from the School Council for their WERead project, a baking competition and a book quiz this afternoon! The School Council were also lucky enough to have a session with a listening dog, who they read a chapter of their book to! We can't wait to hear their feedback from the session!
Today we completed an investigation into the viscosity of liquids. We chose 5 liquids to test and set them up on a ramp! Luckily we left the treacle until the end, as this one took nearly an hour to make it's way to the bottom of the ramp!
