Week 3 Spring - Please sir, can I have some more?

We have continued to go deeper into our topic of Food. Our story of Oliver Twist showed how desperate the orphan boys were who needed more food. We found out the poor conditions that Oliver lived in and how unfairly he was treated.

We also looked at animals and human rights in our philosophy. We had a debate thinking do animals have the same right as humans and how animals are used for testing. We looked at the pros and cons and children decided their view on it. We will continue to look at sustainability and changes over the next few weeks - these being our big ideas for the half term.

In Maths we have begun to look at equivalent fractions, understanding how 4/8 is the same as a 1/2 as well as converting mixed numbers into improper fractions. We will be practising this regularly throughout the half term.

During English we created a set of instructions to create bread. We have been working on developing our sentences and using various adjectives, modal verbs and imperative verbs. 

Our final product was that we created our very own bread watching the yeast cause the mixture to rise - this is a irreversible reaction which we will discover more next week.

During Science we have been looking at how a mixture of various solids and liquids can be separated when heat is applied. We time lapsed our experience where children saw the hot water evaporate and condense creating pure water. It was a very messy experiment in deed! 

During RE this week we have looked into the third pillar of Islam - the Zakah. We investigated how various people support our local community including charities. We came up with various charities that helped various groups of people. I am looking forward to seeing the homework with even more information.

Finally, I just want to say a huge thank you to all have brought the bike-ability letters back. 

Our end goal in topic is to create a three course meal for a parent/ guardian for each child. We are hoping to do this on the last Wednesday of the half term however we will send a letter out next week to confirm this. 

Well done for such a great week.

Mr Worton-Geer and Mrs Stockwell.
