We had chocolate rocks again! This time we made sedimentary rocks from grated milk and white chocolate by moulding them together in cling film. We then turned them into metamorphic rocks by using the heat and pressure from our hands to change them into spherical rocks.
We grouped a selection of cakes and chocolate that had similar features to the rocks we have been studying, as part of our science investigation today. Once we’d correctly grouped them, we could eat them!
We used classification to sort a selection of rocks.
We kicked off our rocks and fossils topic by examining a selection of igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks using the easi-scope microscopes.
We used ‘Diamond Ranking’ to order statements about plants, in order of importance.
We used observation over time to study how the stems of plants act like straws.
We dissected lilies and thought of our own questions to investigate.
We linked our Science topic of Light and Shadow to English Fables by creating shadow puppets of the ostrich and the penguin and re-enacting the subsequent race.
We investigated how shadows were formed and how they can get bigger or smaller.
We investigated the way light travels.
We investigated which material would make the best black out fabric for curtains, which linked to our guided reading book about working through the night.
Chorley Angels came into school to teach us first aid and valuable life saving skills.
We linked our PE lesson with an investigation about length of leg and their relationship with how far we can jump and run.
We filled plastic gloves with red coloured water to try to understand what our hands would feel like without any bones.
Once we knew the major bone names in the human skeleton, we created our own paper version.
We used dog biscuits to make what we thought our skeleton looked like.
