The children have enjoyed completing tasks to explore how sound is made and how it travels. Using predictions and then investigating to see if they were correct.
Starting the term off by researching Ellie Simmonds, the inspiring person our class is named after.Then finding out more about our class values, 'dedicated', 'committed' and 'ready for challenge'- we even finished with a challenge to see how ready we are!
To make a bridge using only 5 pieces of paper strong enough to hold Mrs. Imlach's phone off the ground for 5 seconds.
On Monday we went to Colchester Castle to find out more about the Romans. It was really interesting!
Did you know that Colchester Castle is the largest Norman Keep in Europe?
It was constructed on the foundations of the Temple of Claudius, built when Colchester was the first Roman capital of Britain in AD 54-60.
We were able to go under the castle into the foundations of the Roman temple.
Afterwards we were able to look around the museum and find out more about the Romans and dress up!
Then we worked together in groups to build our own Roman Temples.
We celebrated outdoor classroom day today by taking our maths lesson outside. We were practising rounding decimals to the nearest whole number and made a human number line to help us. The class then spread out across the field to complete their independent work.
In the afternoon, we went outside again to make clouds in a jar and then to act out the life of a water droplet in the water cycle.
Today we made ice cream in science to investigate how materials change from a liquid into a solid. Most groups enjoyed their ice cream, although for some it wasn't quite as solid as it should have been! We followed this by writing instructions on how to make the ice cream.
Today, after we had carried out an investigation into the temperature at which chocolate melts, we found a different way to report back our findings. We hope you enjoy watching the clips as much as we did making them!
