Class 4 Learning
Welcome to class 4!
We hope you enjoy sharing in what we have been doing.
Learning about micro-organisms has been a lot of fun this week, recognising that microbes are helpful in so many different scenarios of life. We used our imagination to create microbes who would be helpful in our drain systems. Using our SOLE skills we all explored big questions. Then we focused on micro-organisms that help to make some of our food, linked with our DT skills we designed and made our own bread. We even had a go at creating our own jingles to promote our bread too. We hope you enjoy listening to some of the shorter recordings below.
Learning about the digestive system has been a lot of fun, we really enjoyed the porridge model demonstration! Whilst messy, it was a great way of seeing what happens to our food as we eat.
Roald Dahl Day! What a lot of fun we all had celebrating Roald Dahl’s birthday. Making lickable wallpaper, baking Nishnobblers and Pishlets from the revolting recipes, solving the jelly bean maths challenge and designing and creating bugs.
In our art lesson we explored smiles through famous artworks. Using the surrealist artist, Man Ray, we created our own smile focused art pieces, with some really pleasing results.
We have been exploring our taste and how our saliva helps to break down the food we eat, by creating a cracker investigation. We loved tasting the samples of, sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami too.
We have all been having fun learning about rounding numbers through our active maths games, tagtiv8.
Wow! What a great start to the new term – sharing brilliant models and creations inspired over the summer holiday from reading your chosen Roald Dahl books, including James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Twits, Fantastic Mr Fox, Danny the Champion of the World, Boy and The Magic Finger. Thank you to mums, dads and aunties who have all been supporting this project. We were lucky to share in the fabulous creations included baked and decorated cakes, models with mechanisms, lego models, pies and much more.
Here are a few examples of what was shared:
