Hockey

We have been learning the skills involved in Hockey.

We have been practising how to move with the ball and how to pass the ball.

Data – Tudor Kings and Queens

We have used data for the Tudor period to create graphs.

These show the population of Britain during each of the Tudor King and queen’s reign and the amount of time each reigned for.

Banana muffin

Today we made banana muffin. This is one of the desserts we have been having for our school dinners?

Which school dinner has been your favourite so far?

Chinese vegetables with rice

Today we made one of the recipes we have been having for our school dinners.

We chopped: carrots, peppers, Savoy cabbage, courgette and onions. We then cooked these with soy sauce and mixed spices.

We cooked the rice and mixed the two together.

Science – spider plants

We are using spider plants to investigate whether new plants can be grown without the need for seeds.

Spider plants are also very good at cleaning the air.

Science investigation

We are investigating how plants can be grown without needing certain things.

We are going to investigate whether a plant will grow with red light only, without soil and whether plants can be propagated without using seeds but from an adult plant.

Our ideas are to try and help grow more plants, in a range of different places to help ensure we have enough food to feed the world.

The Tempest

We have been learning songs linked to the story of The Tempest.

We know the story has magic, revenge and disaster in it.

 

How to use an apostrophe

We have been learning about how to use an apostrophe.

We know that the apostrophe is used for omission and possession.

Omission: this is when a word is a contraction. Two words have been put together and shortened. Can not = Can’t.        Do not = Don’t.

Possession: this is when the apostrophe is used to show that something belongs.

The boy’s coat.        The witch’s hat.
