We have had another great week in Windrush Class and the festive excitement is building as we get closer to the Christmas holidays!
We have finished recording our parts for the Key Stage 2 Christmas Service this week and next week we will be completing our artwork to go along with it.
In maths this week we have started our new unit of work on Multiplication and Division, focusing on the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. In English, we have finished our sentence stacking lessons based on ‘Star in a Jar’ and next week we’ll be completing a piece of independent writing which links to this book.
This week in our RE lesson we looked at how the Trinity is represented in different pieces of art. We looked at a variety of paintings and stained-glass windows. We then wrote about the art that we thought best represented the Trinity and had a go at creating our own Trinity design.
In our Science lesson on Friday we learnt about magnetic and non-magnetic materials. At the start of our investigation, we predicted that all types of metal were magnetic. We then used magnets to test different objects as well as different types of metal. As we tested more objects, we realised that not all metals are magnetic and we learned that, in fact, there are just three magnetic metals: iron, steel and nickel. We were also surprised to find that parts of the classroom wall were magnetic and discussed how they may be lined with one of the three magnetic metals!
