Our new topic is...
Who's Your Mummy
Please find a link below to an amazing times tables website I have been using with the children in class.
It gives them the opportunity to focus on specific times tables as well as testing themselves against all of them. There are games they can use to help them and a really good plan for how they can develop their understanding and knowledge across the times tables we study in school.
Finally, there is a test section which is timed which will give them an experience of times tables against the clock!
Our focus next week will be the 7 times table!
Thank you for your support in this
We have been creating our own explanations to weird and wonderful questions!
They ranged from cheese eating aliens to bark creating maggots!!
Our Amazing 'Eggs-periment'!
This term we have been looking at the human body and focused on the digestive system and the teeth.
As part of our learning we looked at the types of teeth we have and the jobs they do when we eat.
We also investigated, working with Year 3, how things we eat and drink can damage our teeth and how important cleaning them is each day!!
Our 'eggs-periment' involved us putting eggs into different liquids (tea, coffee, coca-cola and water) and leaving them overnight. We then noted down changes that had happened to the eggs and thought about why those changes may have happened.
You can see this in action from the pictures below. An 'eggs-troadinary' time was had by all!!
