MacArthur went on a shape hunt today as part of our maths work. We were looking for 2D and 3D shapes around the school. The most common shape was a rectangle. We tried to count but realised this wold be a challenge as the whole school was built with rectangles (or cuboids).
Have a a look at our pictures. Can you name the shapes as well?
ln history this week, we have been looking at Victorian music and the difference between the music of the rich and the music of the poor. We learnt that poor children and their families could not afford instruments to play and so sang traditional songs or listened to music in the streets or at fayres. Another way that poor Victorian children listened to music was from street sellers. The street sellers used songs to sell their products.
We we had a go at being Victorian street sellers. Check out our efforts below!
MacArthur then looked at shadows and how they are made. They made shadow puppets to test this out.
Have a look below!
As part of their science lessons, MacArthur have been investigating light and dark. They thought about what candles do and the different parts of them. They learnt that it is lit using a wick and as the wax heats up, it starts to melt.
They looked at different candles and whether they produced different levels of light.
MacArthur then went to find the darkest place in the school. It turned out that it was in the art cupboard - it was pitch black and we managed to fit the whole of year 1 inside!
