Today, we conducted our first experiment in Science. We wrapped an egg shaker in different materials (tissue, hand paper towel, paper, fabric, tin foil and clingfilm) and recorded the sound of the egg shaker. We were testing which material was best in preventing the sound from being heard. We concluded that the worst material was the clingfilm and the best material was the paper due to the thickness of this.
This week we have completed the second week of our tables races and what a success it has been! All children have improved their score and time from the first day - great job Team LG! Keep up your hard work! In addition, we have continued with our topic of Place Value, specifically making numbers through the use of concrete resources and understanding the value of each digit in larger numbers..
We have continued studying The Highwayman and have focused on the language used within the poem. In our writing lessons, we have been acquiring skills that we will need to use when writing our own ghost story. These include: fronted adverbials, suspense and tension and use of speech.
Welcome back to Team LG and all the other Park Street children. We hope you have had a wonderful summer and are now feeling refreshed and ready for a new school year. In Team LG, we have had a busy week getting to know one another and we have completed lots of fun activities to settle us back into the 'new' routine. We have:
Chosen our class name
Created our class vision
Decided on our class specific rules
Participated in some maths and literacy activities
Created some pieces of art work
It's been a hectic but fun week and lovely to see all the children's smiling faces once again. We have some exciting plans for the future so keep looking out for regular blog posts to see what we've been up to.
