Today as part of our themed day on Spain, we learnt how to tell the time in Spanish! We then completed some maths challenges and used a very catchy song to help us :
Today we learned about coastal erosion in geography and looked at the different stages which happen over time. We then showed these stages using modelling clay which was lots of fun! We will be writing an explanation text about it in English next week-come back to visit our page to see how we got on.
During our Geography topics, 'Mountains and Coasts' we have been learning about the process of Coastal Erosion. In English, we are planning to write an explanation about how cliffs and rocks around the world are being destroyed by the waves.
We used modelling clay to represent the main stages of a cave, an arch and finally a stack.
We have been looking at writing our own metaphor poems about the sea. We began by reading ‘The Sea’ by James Reeves. We studied his use of metaphoric language and how it brings the description out in the poem.
The children planned their own poem and enjoyed performing them for the class. Well done to everyone for being brave enough to perform for the class.
As part of our 'Changing States' science topic, we completed some mini experiments to see how water can change state. We planned our own investigation using ice cubes to see how solids turn into a liquid. Using a kettle and metal tray we explored how a gas (water vapour) turns into a liquid by condensation.
