Design and Technology
We have had lots of fun this week for our DT Day. Our theme was ‘Food from around the world’. First, we had to guess where different fruit and vegetables come from, we then researched where these fruits originated. We decided to use these fruits to create our own ‘Rainbow Fruit Skewers’, the children had to chop the fruit carefully using the bridging method. Then, we wanted to make a pizza, however, we wanted to ensure that our pizza was healthy, as in science we have been learning about the importance of a healthy diet and the need for a variety of nutrients when cooking. For our pizza base we used natural yoghurt and flour, we topped it with peppers, red onion, cheese, ham, and tomatoes. Finally, we wanted to end the day with a dessert, so we made an apple crumble. The children had to carefully peel the apples and chop them up into small squares. The children had lots of fun creating all the different food and enjoyed learning new skills.
Recently we have been looking at the short animation ‘Treasure.’ We have done lots of work surrounding this animation including descriptive writing, letter writing and debates.
On Tuesday, we received a letter from Tameside City Council explaining that they are planning to demolish the Log Lane Tip – the children had to decide whether they wanted to save or destroy the tip. We shared our ideas and had a fantastic debate. The children are going to write a letter to Mr Jonathan Reynolds persuading him to either destroy or save Lodge Lane Junkyard Site!
This week in Maths we have been learning about multiplication and division. The children have been using different methods to help them calculate their 3, 4 and 8 timetables.
In Science, our topic this half term is ‘Animals Including Humans.’ Over the past 2 weeks, we have been looking at the human body. We have been looking at what humans need to survive, their skeleton and how the different parts of the skeleton protect the human body.
This week, we have been making links with Science and D&T, we have designed and made our very own vegetable soup!
Our geography topic for this half term is Europe. We have been using the atlas to find and identify the countries in Europe.
This week in Maths we have been using Dienes to make two and three digit numbers.
This week in English we have been using the dictionaries to find the meanings of words. We have made cross-curricular links by finding words from our science work, as we are learning about nutrition.
