This half term in geography we will be learning about the Alps. We will discover where they are, how they were formed, how homes are adapted to suit the alpine climate, what the main industries are and how glaciers and avalanches have changed the landscape. In science, we will be learning about forces and how these were discovered. We will learn about why gravity is important, how air resistance works with parachutes, what friction and water resistance are and how this links with our DT topic of pulleys and gears.
Week Beginning 9th March 2020
Thank you so much to everyone who came to learning together. This term we shared mental maths strategies that children use to help remember key facts and to calculate questions mentally.

Week Beginning 3rd February 2020
In PSHCE this week, we discussed how the world, our country and our local community is made up of diverse groups of people and how they bring a range of experiences, knowledge and qualities that make up a multi-cultural society. We then created jigsaw pieces to show the diversity within our society and how they all work together to make up our society.
Week Beginning 27th January 2020
This week in science, we investigated filtering. We discussed how this compares to sieving. We then experimented with different materials dissolved in water and tried to filter them to see which one came out the cleanest.
Week Beginning 20th January 2020
In science this week, we investigated sieving and dissolving. We chose to investigate how long it would take for sugar to dissolve in water using a range of variables. For example, the volume of liquid, temperature of the liquid and how many stirs of a spoon.
Week Beginning 13th January
This week in music we listened to a piece of Dubstep music, a type of electronic dance music. We created musical score using colour to represent:
