It All Electric

This week we started our topic Electricity.

In our first lesson we discussed different types of electricty, where electricty comes from and sorted appliances according to whether they used mains or batteries.

Some pupils concluded that appliances that used batteries needed to be more mobile than mains powered one in order to meet the demands of their use.

 

History – timeline

This week in history we looked at different periods of history before creating our own timelines about the Viking era.

 

 

Science – Living things

We have started our topic about living things and their habitats. Our first activity involved us imagining we were opening a local zoo and we have to decide how to group the animals.

 

 

Animals

This week we started our topic about animals including humans.

In our first lesson we ordered pictures about what happens after we are born then we discussed how baby animals are born – whether they hatch from an egg or are born alive.

 

 

 

Place Value Problem Solving

 
Welcome back after the summer break 4JH! We have got straight into our maths lessons and completed some problem solving with place value. We used counters to help us work out how many ways we could make 4100 with 1000's and 100's counters.

 

This group had 3 counters and had to find all possible 4 digit numbers they could make. We discussed working systematically to help us.
