This term in Harbour Class...
Spring term: Harbour Class have had an ‘explosive’ start to the Spring Term’s first topic ‘Erupting Earth’. Last week, they learnt about volcanoes and then worked collaboratively to design, sculpt and paint their own model. Some children then researched different ways we could make them erupt which we experimented within the playground. The results were spectacular and amazing and we all enjoyed the ‘ash cloud’ and ‘lava’ flow effects we created.
We are continuing our morning routine of philosophical thinking and waking and shaking our bodies during the popular morning exercise activities. Maths this term will see us consolidating the methods we have learnt for multiplication and division and build on these to learn formal written methods.
In literacy this term, we will be learning about the natural forces on Earth, such as Earthquakes and Volcanic Eruptions. We will use our learning as the basis of our creative writing opportunities.
Soundmakers will be returning to the school to teach the children Ukulele. Over ten weeks, the children will learn chords, strumming patterns and some familiar songs which you will be able to enjoy at an assembly late in the term.
In science we will be learning about states of matter and answering the important questions: Why do liquids become solids? Can all solids melt? Does a tea towel soaked in water dry quicker than a tea towel soaked in orange juice?
