At the end of term the children went into the environmental area to create part of a bug hotel.
During the summer term the children have been doing lots of outdoor maths lessons which have proved very popular with the children! They have been practising their timekeeping skills, measuring skills and overall mathematical knowledge to support them with some challenging tasks.
Chiltern Open Air Museum
The children had a fantastic time visiting the Open Air Museum, we made shelters in the woods and learned how to survive in the Stone Age. The children made fire, face paints, shelters using animal skins and jewellery!
In science this term we have been learning about different types of rocks. The children used starburst to demonstrate how metamorphic, igneous and sedimentary rocks are formed. We then did an investigation on the properties of rocks.
The children explored the environmental area and used all the materials they could find to build shelters for themselves or for animals.
The Big Science Event
All the children took part in the Big Science Event this year. Each group came up with their own scientific question and made predictions about what they thought would happen. We then tested out their theories through experimentation - some of the results were very surprising!
We have been exploring plants in Spring term and the children have undertaken lots of investigations to understand what plants need to grow and all the different parts of plants and flowers.
In Maths the children have been learning about fractions, we have been using lots of different methods to help us with problem solving.
River and Rowing Museum
As a year group we visited the River and Rowing Museum in Henley.
The children had a fantastic time learning about the river and the different habitats of animals from Wind in the Willows.
We took part in a workshop looking at Wind in the Willows and were able to show off how much we had learned, the children enjoyed dressing up in costumes and looking at different artefacts that could be found in the story.
