Look who came to visit Hopwood Primary School this week! We are so lucky to have met Santa, his elves and his reindeers. We spoke to Santa and sung a song then the elves answered lots of our questions.
This week our Elf Jingle came to visit! He has been very cheeky.
This week we had our spelling bee! It was very exiting. Well done to our superstar winner.
In science we carried out an investigation which linked to our history topic. We investigated which material would be best if the Wright brother's first flight failed.
This week in computing, we used microsoft teams.
In maths, we have been learning to divide. We used blocks to help us share and group into 2s, 5s and 10s.
In history, we have been learning about how the first flight changed the world. In this week's lesson we identified the different parts of an early aeroplane, then we created a paper aeroplane and labelled it.
How did the first flight change the world?
In history, we are learning about who created the first aeroplane, when the first flight was and how it has changed our lives today. Throughout the term, the children will get the opportunity to research the Wright Brothers, who are responsible for the first flight and look at maps to identify where it took place. We will be looking at the similarities and differences between planes in the 1900s and the planes we see now, as well as constructing an aviation history timeline.
Use of every day materials
Our science lessons will be keeping us very busy this half term, we will be exploring different objects to identify the material it is made out of. The children will also identify how we use these materials every day and classify objects into the correct group. We will also identify why materials are used for specific reasons and discuss what they think may happen if we changed the material.
