Year 3 have started their latest DT project on mechanisms. Today they explored different mechanisms ahead of creating their own pop-up cards.
Over the last couple of weeks, Year 4 have been learning all about the human digestive system. They have learnt the names of the different organs that support digestion and what happens to food at each stage.
Yesterday, Year 4 demonstrated the digestive system using bananas, Weetabix, scissors, tights and more..! Have a look at some of the photos below!
For the last couple of weeks Year 2 have been investigating a crime that happened in their classrooms! They were reading the book ‘I Want My Hat Back’ in English and then made there own hats but one night after school a hat went missing. The children used the clues left in the crime scene by the thief to work out who their main suspects were. They then wrote questions to ask the eye witnesses and suspects to help them gather even more evidence. After a careful investigation they were able to identify the thieves and find the missing hats. The children have written detailed crime scene reports of their investigation to tell the other teachers all about this shocking event!
Some KS2 pupils went with Miss Peek and Miss Forrest to Norwich Cathedral for a music recital this afternoon.
They were able to enjoy a short concert featuring piano, french horn and violin. The children heard a range of music and were even able to ask questions.
Thank you to Norwich School for hosting.
Year 3 finished their stop motion animation unit today. They created they own story boards, settings and characters!
They were so proud of their finished animations!
On Friday 17th November, children across the whole school celebrated their uniqueness by wearing odd socks. The day started with an assembly by the Happiness Heroes, who explained their role in school and upcoming projects they have planned. Back in class, everyone learnt about what bullying is and how to ‘Make a Noise’ about bullying to put an end to it.
This week in Science, Year 6 have started their new unit on light. Children revisited prior learning using a concept cartoon to start their discussions. Then they explored subject-specific vocabulary which they will use and develop their understanding of through investigation and enquiry over the course of this half term.
Year one designed and made penguins as part of Design and Technology. First, they had to plan what the penguin was going to look like and which part they wanted to move. Some children chose to make the head move. Some decided the flippers or wings would move. Next, they drew a template and cut it out. Finally, they put it together using spilt pins for the moving part. They were all very proud of the end result.
After comparing the United Kingdom and China in Geography, Year 2 have spent the beginning of this half term learning about Chinese Dragons that are used in parades. They have also learnt about wheels and axels and how these components help to make a vehicle move. The children have combined this knowledge to design and make their own version of a Chinese Dragon that is able to pulled along in a parade.
A big thanks to Norwich High School for visiting KS2 music assembly today.
The children participated in a singing workshop before listening to a flute, French horn, clarinet, piano, saxophone, vocal and African percussion recital.
Everyone loved hearing the range of instruments. Thank you!
