Investigating India!

 

India! Sacred rivers, towering mountains, ever-changing climate, rich culture, beautiful temples and bustling cities. Our 'Investigating India' topic will have the class mesmerised by the true essence of India. We will investigate India’s climate and physical geography with detailed maps as well as understand the complex Indian environment. We will explore the major mountains and rivers that dictate India’s population and climate patterns, locate major cities in India and investigate the human and physical features found there.

How is India different to our home? We will compare and contrast India to the United Kingdom to find out!

Electricity! We've had lots of fun making circuits using batteries, bulbs, buzzers, switches and motors!

Yesterday we finished off our DT projects by making our curries! It was lots of fun and they all tasted delicious!

Thank you to everyone who made and bought cakes for our cake sale yesterday! We raised a massive £110!

ODL- we have started our new science topic of sound by exploring the different sounds around the school. We created sound maps to show what we could hear, we investigated the different sounds that could be made using different materials and which had a higher and lower pitch. Finally we looked at how sounds can be heard using vibrations!

Curry tasting! As part of our DT project we have been researching the ingredients in different curry sauces and then we did the taste test! There were a few red faces by the end!

African Drumming Performance

World Book Day

To finish our science topic, we have made a biome in a box!

This term we will be having African drumming lessons every week and today was our first! I was very impressed with how quickly everyone was able to pick up the beat!

We made slime in ODL. It can act as both a solid and a liquid.

We investigated the weight of gas in fizzy drinks in ODL! It was a lot of fun trying to make the drinks flat by shaking them!

We read play scripts of Boudicaa's Rebellion, focusing on using expression in our voices, facial expression and body language.

Compass skills in ODL. We created navigational paths for our partners to follow.
