A Viking from Jorvik visited us in the classroom - it was brilliant to hear about Viking life from a real life Viking! Thanks FOS for funding this.
In order to better understand the pulmonary system, we made our own model of a lung. When we pulled the 'diaphragm ' down, the lung inflated!
We created graphs to show the results of the effect of exercise on the heart investigation.
We designed our own Viking style brooches.
In science, we planned and then carried out investigations to see the effect of exercise on heart rate.
J, H and L made fantastic bookmarks and bracelets to raise money for Comic Relief.
We had lots of fun making 'blood'. It helped us understand the different components.
We created Viking style braids using a trollen wheel.
We also made Viking soda bread.
We sat around a campfire to eat our soup - just like the Vikings would have done. The soup was all completely eaten: some people had fourths!
We cooked split pea soup- it was delicious!
Barn Owls looked fantastic all dressed up for Viking Day today!
Barn Owls created some fantastic newspaper headlines today in preparation for writing their fake news articles.
In Science we have started learning about the circulatory system. The children played the part of red blood cells and organs of the body and travelled around the body in the same way a red blood cell would.
Barn Owls learnt about safer mobile phone use today and created dramas around a particular issue. They then came up with their own solutions and advice for what to do.
What does a soul look like? Barn Owls did a great job of drawing what theirs might look like.
After reading the book 'The Wonder Garden', we created descriptions of our creatures.
After learning about adaptations in science, we created our own creatures and annotated their adaptations.
We have created factfiles about Charles Darwin - the 'Father of Evolution'.
In RE, we have been learning about morals. To demonstrate this we learnt the story of Androcles and the Lion. The children created super storyboards!
We had a great time learning French today through playing Battleships!
In Science today, we investigated the effectiveness of different shapes of bird beaks just like Charles Darwin did.
