Feel free to look over the children's homework menu to see what different opportunities they have to further their learning and embed knowledge learnt at school. Homework is expected to be handed in by Friday, every week. We would like the children to select either a Maths or English homework alongside another subject each week. Therefore, two pieces of homework should be completed.
Welcome to Montreal Class
Well done for all of your effort and achievements this half term.
We hope you are as successful in the lead up to Christmas!
Keep up the hard work!!!!
Autumn Term Topic 'World at War'
We have been investigating light. We needed to create an experiment to prove that light travels in straight lines. After some experimenting, we discovered that if we created a row of cards, with holes in the exact same place, we would be able to see that the light travelled perfectly through the holes in one single beam. Thus proving that the light was travelling in a straight line.
To remember and commemorate World War I, the children designed poppies for our Remembrance Service at Trinity School, where some of the children performed a dramatic piece.
As it was such a cold day today, we decided to mimic dance routines (using the website 'GoNoodle') in class for PE. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are striving to improve our class level!
We have continued to investigate how a variety of factors control shadows this week in Science. This lesson was created by the children as they previously questioned why an object's shadows differs at certain times in the day. I was impressed with how creative Montreal were when experimenting with different shapes for umbrellas. Their task was to consider the best position for the umbrella to keep their figure in the shade.
To interweave our topic of 'World at War' during our lesson today, we created circuits to include within images that were specifically designed around a theme e.g. the Blitz or a rescue mission on a motorbike.
Spring Term Topic 'Running Wild'
Here is a selection of art from our recent Easter competition. The children worked tirelessly after refining their skills over this half term. We began by using a point of reference to then develop initial objects within the scene.
Summer Term Topic 'Great Memories, Bright Future'
The children planned an investigation after Mr Llewelyn commented on how many fizzy drinks Mr Kolseth would drink each day! They wondered how much gas was released from a fizzy drink and whether or not the variety, or even the size of the bottle, would make a difference to the amount.
