This week in RE we have learnt all about what makes a good person in Sikhism. We also discovered what the Khalsa is and the importance of it in a Sikhs life.
This week children wrote their own adventure stories in Literacy.
This week we have been learning more about Friction and Forces. We carried out an investigation to see if objects move differently on different surfaces. We used a jam jar lid and flicked it across different surfaces and measured how far the lid went. It was difficult to make sure we used the same force to flick the lid each time, but to be great scientists we need to make sure our investigations are fair tests!
This week we learnt the story of Christmas and had a traditional Christmas dinner followed by an afternoon full of fun activities.
For this weeks D&T project we have been making moving mechanisms to showcase our Rainforest topic.
