News 8.1.17

Year 3

Before Christmas we made some Christmas trees with Mrs Banham, we also designed some French shoes and the next day they all had sweets in them! We also created chatterboxes/fortune tellers using the 3,4, and 8 times tables and tested each other. This year we have made foldable metre rulers and used them to estimate and measure items around the classroom, including legs and arms! What a creative class. Happy 2017.

Year 5

 

This week in science we made a model of the solar system.  We used a different fruit to represent each of the eight planets.  We used a peppercorn, a melon, a cherry tomato, an apple, a lime, a grapefruit, a raspberry and a blueberry. The hardest part  was deciding which fruit to use for which planet until we looked at the smallest and largest diameters from our data research.

The solar system looked like this:

 

Mercury - peppercorn 

Venus - cherry tomato 

Earth - raspberry

Mars - blueberry

Jupiter - melon

Saturn - grapefruit

Uranus - apple

Neptune - lime

 

We then ate Jupiter, which was very juicy!
