Scrumdiddlyumptious!

WOW!

We had a truly scrumptious day to launch our new topic! Firstly, we had to find our class novel - Charlie and The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl - in the library. Next, find the all important golden ticket inside the book so we could enter Willy Wonka's Factory!

We then tasted different chocolate and ingredients you might add to chocolate.  These included raisins, apricots, marshmallows as well as less sweet foods like ginger, cinnamon and even chilli!!  Finally, we made our own 'armpit' fudge in a bag adding our two favourite ingredients for us to enjoy at home.  

We had a lot of fun - take a look at some photos below.

Tribal Tales

 

We have had a lot of fun this term writing stories about the Stone Age Boy, Kenning poems describing animals and tools from the Stone Age and producing an information book about how they lived, their homes, the clothes they wore and even their jewellery, although it was made from bones!

In DT, we designed a pulley system to lower the pot towards the fire as they would have done to cook in Stone Age times.  We also learnt about the weapons they used to catch their dinner and how the ancient village of Skara Brae was discovered in the Orkney Islands.

We also looked at some artefacts from the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age including axe heads, flint spear heads and deer and sheep skin.

 

Expressing Our Learning

 

We enjoyed our last day of the Spring term by expressing our learning in creative ways.  We made Stone Age jewellery, using clay or made a round house from the Iron Age.  Having also learnt about what an archaeologist does, we had a go ourselves, carefully searching for pieces of an artefact.

Take a look at some of our photos and see what the  artefact once looked like!!

 

Project Homework

We had some fantastic pieces of homework including an array of spears, some roundhouses, information books, cave paintings as well as PowerPoints from Laura, Monty, Zack, Fatima, Beau and Annabel.

Here are some of our masterpieces below!

WOW!

 

We went back in time, about 2.6 million years, to spend a day in The Stone Age!  We learnt about daily life and experimented with cave paintings.  First, we drew our design using charcoal and pastels, trying to draw a mammoth as well as other animals.  Next we created our own 'stone' wall using sand.  We collected twigs and leaves, as well as our fingers, to use as a paintbrush and then painted our designs on the rough surface.  It was much harder!  

We also experienced some 'whittling' - we used some flint to sharpen a branch, as the people of The Stone Age would have done, to create a sharp spearhead to hunt their food.  

It was a really fun and enjoyable start to our project!  Take a look at the photos below!

 

Predator

Our Learning 

We have enjoyed learning in Science about the human skeleton and animals with different types of skeleton - endoskeleton and exoskeleton.  We also learnt how muscles work. 

As part of our RE topic, we learnt about important items for Jewish people and made a Mezuzah which would be found on the front door of a Jewish home with the Shema (an important prayer) inside.  

In Design and Technology, we made our own predator animal using pneumatics to make a part move.  This means it uses air to make the mouth, tongue or head move.  We are very proud of our designs.

Predator

Project Homework

 

We had some very interesting projects about different predators, presented in a variety of ways. Take a look at some of our work. We also learnt new facts from  the PowerPoints presented by: Monty, Zack, Antony, Iruka, Joey W, Beau, Fatima, Laura and Annabel. 

 

 

Predator

Wow!

Y3 started their project by becoming a predator and hunting for their prey! They also searched for some animals that had camouflaged themselves in their surroundings to protect themselves.

As part of Science, Y3 will be learning all about the human body so we worked as a team to put the bones back together to form the human skeleton.  Did you know there are 206 bones in the human body!
