We've been reading 'Stone Age Boy' in our English lessons and have been considering what the characters may be saying to one another. We have been trying to write this as direct speech.
During our maths lesson, we practised writing numbers in words. We played a game that involved rolling the dice and writing the numbers that we created.
During our science lesson today, we made chocolate rocks! This was to show how igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks are formed.
We learnt the song 'Deux Petits Oiseaux' during our French lesson and then made our own finger puppets and performed the song together. I've got a feeling we're going to have this song stuck in our head for a long time to come!
We have had the most wonderful week settling into our new class, exploring our classroom and making lots of new friends - this year is going to be fantastic!
During our science lesson today, we made 'dirt puddings' to remind us of the layers of the earth. The different items of food reminded us of the inner and outer core, the mantle, the bedrock, the subsoil and the topsoil.
We all brought in rocks from home and during our science lesson today, we created a 'rock museum'. We thought of awards that we could give to the rocks, for example 'the sparliest rock', 'the bumpiest rock' and 'the smoothest rock'. This activity helped us to generate lots of questions about rocks…
During our geography lesson, we sorted statements about earthquakes and volcanoes into those that we thought were true and those that we thought were false. This generated lots of questions for our new geography topic!
