SCIENCE - CLASSIFYING PLANTS
In Science we have looked at living things and their habitats. Today we discussed how plants are also organisms and looked at classifying British plants.
We worked in groups to capture pictures around school and then used an online plant classifier to find out their names and information about them.
Northfield Fire Fighters visit
We were very fortunate to have four firefighters take time out of their busy day to visit us in class today. They taught us very important things such as; escape routes, dangers of hoax calls, how to make an emergency call and stop drop and roll. We all listened very attentively and learnt life saving information.
ICT - SCRATCH PROGRAMMING.
We have begun our first ICT project this Half term - using a computing programme called Scratch.
Our task is to create an 'Educational game' we have created concepts and plans and once they have been completed using algorithims and debugging we will test them on Year 3 and gather feedback.
This resource can be used at home too - https://scratch.mit.edu/
We have had a wonderful start to our 'MMADDD' Fridays! This term we are doing French with Miss Purcell and Drama with Miss Murphy.
We have recapped our basic conversation from last year and are working hard to build on it every lesson.
Our new novel - THE IRON MAN
We were introduced to our new book for this half term - The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We are enjoying it a lot already! To find out the title and plot of this well-loved classic, we took part in a QR CODE hunt around the school grounds. Each code, when scanned, revealed a clue about the book.
We had great fun during the hunt and asked lots of interesting questions during the guessing!
