As part of our work for science and music we have been looking at how sound is made and how we hear different sounds.

We have been composing our own music using different instruments. we are now using these sounds to compose music using ICT software and looking at the difference and similarities between composing music with instruments and composing music using a computer programme.

Our topic this term is, 'Bomb, Battles and Bravery' we have been learning all about Britain during World War Two. As part of our topic we produced some art work to show London during the Blitz. We painted our backgrounds, mixing and blending the paint together to create the effect of an explosion. We then cut our silhouettes of iconic London landmarks to create the foreground of our art work.

Our science topic this term is 'States of Matter' we completed a fair test to prove that gas has a mass. We measured the mass of a fizzy drink which had been left in the glass for two days and then we measured the same amount of fizzy drink straight from a sealed bottle. We discovered through our fair test that gas does indeed have a mass and have been researching whether all gasses have the same mass.

Godstone Farm Visit

 

During the autumn term we visited Godstone Farm as part of our ‘What a Wonderful World’ topic. We were shown around the farm by Farmer Conner and had the opportunity to learn about lots of different animals, we learnt all about how the animals are adapted to forage and hunt for food as well as learning about the life cycles of some of the animals on the farm. During our visit we fed the pigs and got to stroke some of the smaller animals.
