Mrs Osborn's Class
This term we will be carrying out a variety of investigations on states of matter - solids, liquids and gases and our topic is called 'Magical Motion'. We will define and find examples of solids, liquids and gases. we are going to explore the gas contained inside a bottle of lemonade, why a candle loses weight and height when it burns and whether or not a gas is released. We will explore the water content in a variety of solid fruits and vegetables. We will work together when using a wealth of numeracy skills to measure time, mass and height. We will set up experiments in groups where we will predict, ensure fair testing, record data in tables and a variety of graph forms. We will read and interpret completed data in graphs and draw conclusions. We will reflect upon our finished experiments.
We will be learning how to write instructions accurately through planning a holiday recipe and devising a booking method. We are focussing on improving our extended writing by improving style, punctuation and spelling across a wide range of writing forms. We are all trying to read more complex texts for longer periods and we are supporting each other by being 'Leaders for Learning' and helping our peers across the school.
This year we will be performing the fantastic pantomime that everyone adores 'Aladdin'! We are excited about this production and we are awaiting the cast list. Watch for photos of progress!!
