What a busy week we had last week!

We started off the week by watching an explorer enter an ancient pyramid. We used role play and conscious alley to think abut the characters's thoughts and feelings when entering the pyramid. As a class, we did a lot of vocabulary work to try and expand and develop the vocabulary we use in our writing. We will be using all of this work to produce a piece of writing this week all about the explorer's adventures!

In Maths, we have continued learning about measures with a focus on volume and capacity. We thought about the key facts that we needed to know, such as 1000ml =1L, before moving onto measuring volume and capacity ourselves. We the used this learning to solve problems that involved adding, subtracting and comparing measurements.

During our afternoon lessons, we have continued to learn about our Science topic — Rocks. Initially, we used a range of texts to research information all about the pyramids in Egypt. The children we amazed to find out that the pyramids were made of limestone and it took 20 years and 20,000 workers to build the Pyramid of Giza! After all our research, we decided to become rock detectives to find out more about a range of rocks. We looked at Limestone, Sandstone, Basalt, Granite and Marble and thought about the different properties they have. This week we will be testing these rocks to investigate their hardness and permeability.

A huge congratulations to Eleanor for passing her grading in Jujitsu. Your demonstration in celebration assembly on Friday was fantastic, we were all very impressed! Well done!
