Perimeter.

This week in maths we have been learning about what the perimeter is and how we can calculate the perimeter of a shape or object.

'Show not tell' sentences

Show not tell sentences.


Class 9 have been learning to write their own 'Show not tell' sentences.


These sentences allow our work to be more interesting and capture the reader by showing how a character is feeling, rather than just telling them.


To improve our sentences we have been acting out different emotions and guessing our partners emotions from their body language and facial expressions!

Billionaire Boy.

Tell us your opinion of our new class novel Billionaire Boy.

Renewable Energy 

Well done class 9 on your leaflets, posters and models on our new geography topic!

Doesn't our display look fantastic with all your amazing work! 

 

 

Pneumatic Systems.

This half term we have been learning about pneumatic systems- how they work, what they're used for and ways to create our own.
We have now designed, planned and made our own pneumatic system using a burger box, a balloon, a straw and an elastic band. Look at our amazing designs!

Class Assembly- Ancient Egyptians 19/10/2017.

Thank you to everyone who attend our class assembly.
The children all worked exceptionally hard and really enjoyed showing their friends and families what they have learnt about the Ancient Egyptians.
Here are some pictures from the assembly.

Getting ready.....

We've begun practicing for our class assembly, which is next week! We're all getting really excited to show you what we have been learning!

The Bleak Beach.

Class 9 have done some fantastic writing today to end our story setting topic.
We've been writing a setting description of the bleak beach where Hiccup's adventure began in our class novel.

 

Try and spot all the features our super writers have included!

 

 

The results are in!

We've been observing our eggs all week to look at changes to the shell.
This is a picture of our results.

We have found that the orange juice caused most damage to the egg shell, with coke, diet coke and coffee all staining the egg shell.

Water and milk caused no changes to the egg shell, showing us the importance of drinking water and milk to protect our teeth from tooth decay.

 

Co-operation.

Today we have been discussing the importance of co-operation and team work.
Class 9 have been untangling themselves and discovered just how essential good communication skills are!

Last week we planned our own investigation to explore the affects of different liquids on tooth decay - using hard boiled eggs to represent our teeth.

We've now set up our experiment , check back to see our results!
