We have started our new unit in RE about Sikhism. We have started to learn about the word equality and what it means. In our lesson we all started with the same size ball of clay and had to then make our own pot design. We discovered that even though we all started off with the same, all of our pots were very different.
To celebrate science week we have been smashing stereotypes and looking at the diversity of various scientists. Our class looked at the work of Jane Colden the first female botanist in America. We participated in two different experiments - why do leaves change colour (using kitchen paper and black pen) and how do flowers open (using paper 'flowers' in water). Here are some photos of our investigations.
In Geography we have been learning about the world. We have been looking at globes and Atlases to find countries around the world. Through this we have learnt about the Equator, Longitude and Latitude !
We have made our own globes, using balloons and paper, so that we can create our own world, with fictional countries and we made sure that we included the Equator around our globes.
