Class 5 : What we've been up to
We have all made a googly eye pot and put some cotton wool and mustard seeds in.
After a week nothing happened because we didn't add water. Once we added water our seeds germinated very quickly.
We created out own number lines using materials we found outside. We chose our own start and end number and then we plotted different values on our own number lines. We discussed how we could reduce the number of sticks we needed for each division by having each stick worth 2, 5 or 10.
Art Day 2
We had a fun Art Day creating scenery for our Christmas Play.
We did some sponge printing using a stencil and potato printing.
As part of our science topic on Plants we have looked at all the trees in the school grounds and predicted whether we think they are deciduous or evergreen.
Evergreen trees have leaves throughout the year.
Deciduous trees loose all their leaves in Autumn and are bare throughout Winter. They grow new leaves in the Spring.
