Marcus Rashford – Mrs Argrave

Welcome to Marcus Rashford Class

Welcome to Marcus Rashford Class. We have chosen him as our inspirational sports person as he has shown himself to be a very generous and caring man. We are reading his book, 'You are a champion' and the children find his beliefs and feelings very helpful. We particularly enjoyed the part where we learned that everyone's tongues are different, just like our fingerprints!

 

Summer Term

Maths

This term, we have been learning Decimals, time, statistics and the properties of shape, which includes angles.

In History, we have been investigating how Britain was invaded by the Romans and the impact it had on the indigenous people living here.

Some excellent examples of our work.

In Science/ English, we produced a non-chronological report on how our digestive system works. The children had a wonderful time creating their own using some tights, a banana, digestive biscuits and orange juice. We got thoroughly sticky and produced some impressive 'waste'.

As part of our History topic, the children had to imagine that they were living in Britain at the time of the Roman invasion. They were asked to write a diary entry about their experiences.

Spring Term

Topic - Electricity

We have had lots of fun discussing this topic. We have explored staying safe around electricity within our homes and our school. The children created their own safety posters, some of which can be seen below.

The children have created electrical circuits and had a wonderful time making light bulbs work and motors whir. Moving on, the children predicted which materials would be conductors or insulators and completed an experiment to prove themselves right or wrong.

 

French

Spring Term

We have had a really interesting time learning French words and phrases for fruit and vegetables. We have now moved on and are learning phrases and questions related to the ancient history of Great Britain.

Lego Mindstorm

Spring Term

The children had great fun and had to work together as a team to follow instructions to build and program a Lego Mindstorm. They then had to correctly program it to complete their own obstacle course.

Rivers and Coasts

Spring Term

After Christmas, we learned how rivers are formed, how they merge and increase in size, how the speed at which they travel changes as they make their way to the sea. We also investigated how our coasts are formed.

Street Art

Autumn Term

The children did an excellent job of learning about Keith Harding and his style of art. They then recreated some of his work. They did an amazing job!

Health and Well-being

Spring Term

We have worked incredibly hard with the children discussing how to set personal goals and how to deal with disappointment if these don't happen. We have discussed resilience, remaining positive and asking friends and family for support. In an ever changing world, it is important for the children to be able to deal with life's ups and downs.

English

 

In English, the children have been having great fun learning, innovating and creating their own version of 'Walking with My Iguana' by Brian Moses.

Maths

In Maths, the children have been adding 3 digit and 4 digit numbers using the column method and regrouping when the numbers pass through the tens barrier.

 

Some examples of the children's work.

Topic - Stone Age

In Topic, we have been learning about life in prehistoric times. The children used natural resources to experiment with different methods of dyeing materials.

Wookey Hole

As part of our Stone Age topic, we visited Wookey Hole. We had a wonderful day investigating the caves, listening to the ways in which prehistoric people would have lived in them and asking lots of interesting questions.

Our guide told us that we were the best behaved group of children that he had had. Well done, everyone!

Some pictures of our great day out!
