Welcome to Miss Walker's class

  • What's coming up this term?

    We launched our new term with a very exciting trip to MAGNA science adventure centre. Our focus this term will be looking at the 4 elements of the universe which we started to discover at MAGNA; Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Each week we will have a different question to answer and will do so by taking part in investigations.

    Some questions we have thought about so far...

    Are bubbles always round? What makes a bubble? I wonder how you make a giant bubble...?

    What is the fire triangle? How do we stay safe near fire? I wonder how quickly materials will melt...?

Literacy

To start this term, we are looking at the familiar tale of 'The three little pigs' and linking this to our knowledge of materials. We will be writing our own versions of the story, changing the way that the big, bad wolf blows down the houses.

We will also be writing recounts including our trip to MAGNA and of ongoing science investigations. 

Maths

In maths we will continue to focus on the 4 operations:

Addition

Subtraction

Multiplication

Division

We will also be expanding our knowledge of measure including weight, capacity and length.

Maths(1)

Science

WE LOVE SCIENCE!

Our learning is based all around science this term with the overall focus of 'Materials and their properties'.

We are currently making a 'Big book of science' in the classroom to record our class investigations and to keep photographs. We also have science shirts to wear when conducting our experiements!
