Maths in Year 4

By Maths, Year 4

Today, Year 4 were lucky to have a maths lesson with lots of teachers from DSAT.  We really thought about using different representations to help understand the structure of the maths we were doing. We used cubes to represent unit and non unit fractions.

Well done to all the children in Year 4 for their excellent behaviour.  The visitors were really impressed by your positive attitude to maths and your confident use of mathematical language.

Well done.  Remember – We are all Mathematicians!

Eating a Balanced Diet

By Physical Education, Science, Sport, Sporting Excellence, Year 5

This afternoon, Year 5 have been learning more about the Eatwell Guide. The Eatwell Guide shows how much of what we eat overall should come from each food group to achieve a balanced diet.
They looked at the components of the Eatwell Guide and thought more about what it means to have a balanced diet. Why not ask them about it at home?

This is part of the Joy of moving Move and Learn Project.

Year 5 have a Norse Visitor

By History, Year 5

Today, Year 5 were lucky enough to have a Norse visitor who shared his knowledge of the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings who raided, traded and settled in Britain from AD 786.

We thought about the role of archeology and studied artefacts. We looked at them closely and tried to decide what they were made of and how they would have been used.

We looked at runes and used them to make a leather key ring.

We tried on clothes and helmets and held swords.

Vikings often traded in people.  Enslaved humans were very important to the Vikings. They were enslaved for life and were worth about as much as a cow.

Congratulations to all the children in Year 5 who have already achieved their Bronze Reading Award.  To do this so early, they have read at home at least three times every week since joining Year 5. Well done.  Keep enjoying your reading.

Wow! Some more children have achieved their Bronze Reading Award.

Science in Year 5

By Science, Year 5

Today, Year 5 have been thinking about the force of friction.

We used jelly cubes, containers, chopsticks and sunflower oil.

We transferred the  jelly cubes from one bowl to another with chopsticks.

Then, we added a little sunflower oil to the jelly cubes and moved more of them to another bowl.

As scientists, we did the comparison more than once and noticed any differences.

What do you think happened? Why?
