As we have entered the month of October, our English work has become appropriately more scary and suspenseful! We have been watching the creepy short film clip ‘Alma’, which has both left us on tenterhooks and given us great inspiration for our shared and independent writing as a class. We have used creative ideas and a great range of vocabulary in our writing.
As well as experimenting with suspense, we have also been conducting a number of scientific experiments in our ‘Properties of Materials’ science lessons. These include dissolving salt in water of different temperatures to test how this affects the speed of the process, and separating different mixtures using a variety of equipment. We have greatly enjoyed the practical side and have been very responsible when dealing with hot water and scientific equipment. We have also been ensuring we think like scientists when making predictions and writing conclusions.
In maths, the use of place value counters has helped us to understand and explain the process of addition and subtraction, especially when it comes to exchanging.
Finally, our groups for the upcoming hat creations have been decided and we look forward to getting on with the making part in the coming weeks.
