Welcome to Class 7’s page!
Happy New Year! Welcome back.
This week we have launched our human body science topic. The children drew around their bodies and filled in what they know about the human body. Not only was it great fun, we also had some great discussions about where parts of our body should go.
In Maths, we have been looking at part-part-whole models and linking it to what we know about place value. We have been representing three-digit numbers using different visual representations. We investigated what happens when you move place value counters onto different columns on the place value grid. We tried to find all the possible answers! We had to work systematically so that we knew we hadn’t missed any numbers.
Stone Age to the Iron Age
Bronze Age Projects
This term, we’ve been busy at home creating our Bronze Age projects. This culminated in our Year 3 exhibition. We were very creative with our responses, as you can see!
Butser Ancient Farm
We visited Butser Ancient Farm for a (very cold!) hands on day to explore Stone Age and Bronze Age life. We had a tour of the houses, did some fence wattling and had a go at creating chalk talismans using carving. We even had a go at being archaeologists and investigating our findings using what we know about the eras. The staff at the farm were all very impressed by how knowledgeable we are.
Stone Age Day
Oliver’s dad brought in some amazing artefacts and showed us how to build a fire and flint knap. We loved the experience and watching an expert do these things safely.
