Class 8

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 good discussions about where parts of our body should go.

In maths, we have been learning about part- part- whole models and how they link to place value. We investigated what happens when we move our place value counters into different places on the place value grid, and tried to find ALL the possible 3 digit numbers. It took a LONG time but we learned that being systematic was really helpful.

 

Welcome to Class 8!

We have been learning about The Stone Age to The Iron Age.

We spent time in the woods dressed as Stone Age people, learning from an expert. We learned how to start fires, make bows and arrows and flint knap arrow heads. It was great fun and we learned a lot about the resourcefulness of the Stone Age people.

We also learned about the diet of The Stone Age people by investigating some “poo”.

We went to Butser Farm to see the homes they made over the years and how they changed their way of life from Nomads to Settlers.

We explored the different types of rock and stone they used and how they made their tools according to the type of rock and it’s properties.
