Term 1 - Mysterious Materials
Thank you to those of you who attended our 'meet the teacher' evening. We hope you found it useful. If you weren't able to attend please find the powerpoint presentation underneath.
This part of the website is about providing you with opportunities for some home learning. We encourage all of the children to read every day. 5EA Cherry's challenge is to read the height of Miss Aubrey. Once a book has been read please bring it into school so we can photocopy the spine. Additionally, we are testing the children on their weekly spellings and times table target. They will be tested every Thursday.
Our topic this term involves materials and their properties. We would like the children to design an information page about the materials around the home that keep them warm or cool. The children can also identify the materials that keep us safe from electrical and hot items. This website has lots of information, games and quizzes about materials. Please have a go! http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/science/materials/
We have already completed an investigation looking at which everyday material will keep a cup of water hot for the longest amount of time, started reading our class text ‘Alex Rider Stormbreaker’ by Anthony Horowitz and learnt about rounding numbers to a million. But we’re looking forward to learning even more!
Miss Aubrey and the children of 5EA Cherry.
