On Tuesday 12th October we had our Christopher Columbus Wow Day!
In the morning we took part in a drama workshop where we learnt about life in the 1400s and Columbus' treatment of the indigenous people.
In the afternoon we baked some 'ship biscuits', inspired by the biscuits Columbus and his crew ate whilst on their voyage. We also did some spice painting, inspired by the spice trade.
We had a super day!
Year 6 have been busy writing their own stories. We were lucky enough to have Year 6 visit us and read us their stories. We loved listening to them, we thought they were brilliant!
We have been learning about plants in science and what plants need to grow. We have also learnt about how seeds are dispersed. We went on a 'seed hunt' to see how many different types of seeds we could find on t he school field, and where we could find them!
In science we have been learning about plants and what they need to grow. As a class, we have carried out an experiment. We want to see whether the amount of water effects how much a plant grows. We panted bean seeds in three different pots. One pot had no water, one pot had 50ml of water and one pot had 100ml of water.
We made sure that each pot had the same amount of soil, will receive the same amount of sunlight and will have the same amount of time so that it is a fair test.
In art we have been learning about Pablo Picasso. We learnt that he used a style called 'cubism' in his art work. We then had a go at creating our own self-portraits in this style. They have made our corridor look so bright and colourful!
