By playing a game, we learnt how to order fractions from biggest to smallest.
At the aquarium, we had a fantastic time finding out lots of information about 'Living Things' which links to our Science topic this final half term.
We have been learning about shadows as part of the topic 'Light'. At different times of the day our shadows are in different positions and are different lengths as a result of the position of the sun.
These are our completed Egyptian necklaces. They are all unique and brilliant!
In DT, we created our own Egyptian necklaces.

In Science, we tested which metals made the best conductors by adding them to an electrical circuit.
World Book Day 2016
We created our own books about different types of lines for Maths using the app 'Book Creator' on the iPads. We took photos and videos, recorded our voices and found pictures on the internet to make each page of our book exciting and unique!
In DT, we have been making a Plymouth building in groups using recycled materials. When we finish constructing and decorating our building, we will put an electrical circuit inside it.
We were so lucky with the beautiful weather when we went on our walk around the village! Everyone had a lovely time and learnt a great deal about the past and present Tamerton Foliot.
For Safer Internet Day, we watched videos and had a whole class discussion about the dangers of the internet and things we can do to keep ourselves and our friends safe. Then we made posters to inform others of the different things they must do to stay safe when using the internet.
In computing this half term, we have been having fun creating music using a programme called 'Rainforest Music'.
To help us to convert four digit numbers from words into numbers, we used place value counters.
To show our mums how much we love and appreciate them, we finger painted Mother's Day cards for them.
We made our own collages of Plymouth landmarks based on the work of artist Jeannie Baker.
In Maths, we cut Jaffa Cakes to make 1/2, 2/2, 1/3, 2/3, 3/3, 1/4, 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4 to help us to order fractions from smallest to largest! It was delicious fun!
Hot seating characters from the book 'Matilda' by Roald Dahl.
These are a few of the balances we have learnt in gymnastics.
For Science, we have been learning about different types of electricity. As part of this lesson, we looked at some of the effects of static electricity.
We baked and decorated snowman cupcakes! Miss Horwell's mum came in to help us!
We made paper chains to decorate the classroom!
For homework, the children made their own dragon eggs!
In DT, we have been making Viking figureheads in pairs.
In Science, we investigated different ways sound can travel through solids.
We learnt about condensation by boiling a kettle below a cold plate. We watched the steam turn into water droplets and drip into the measuring jug!
In Maths, we have been finding the properties of 3D shapes.
We painted and labelled the water cycle during a Science lesson.
In Art this half term, we have enjoyed making Anglo-Saxon stained glass windows.
We played Maths games on the computers to practise adding 2 digit numbers.
We have been working together to perform paired and group balances in Gymnastics.
In Science, we learnt that some materials change states when they are cooled by making jelly and measuring its temperature every thirty minutes until it changed from a liquid into a solid.
We used coins to help us make different amounts of money and put them into place value columns to learn how to write amounts of money correctly.
We learnt that chocolate is a material which has a reversible change. First we broke the solid cubes of chocolate into a bowl. Then we heated the chocolate to turn it into a liquid. After mixing the chocolate with cornflakes, we turned chocolate back into a solid by putting it in the fridge.
We have been using place value counters to help us understand how to partition three digit numbers into hundreds, tens and ones.
In English, we have been learning to use pronouns to avoid repetition in our writing. We worked in pairs or table groups to choose which pronoun suited different sentences.
In Science, we are learning about solids, liquids and gases. We spread out and rushed around to represent gas particles, got a bit closer and jogged to represent liquid particles and got close together and vibrated to represent solid particles.
During a Maths lesson, we used bead strings to find different ways of making two digit numbers by adding two numbers.
