To showcase our art work from this half term, we hosted an art gallery for the school. We invited children from other year groups to come and take a long at our hard work. We had stations at which children could have a go at the skills we have been pracitisng and children could learn a bit about our fantastic artists that we have been so inspired by! What a fabulous way to end a half term full of great achievements.
This week in science, we have looked at the reproduction of plants such as potatoes and strawberries and we had a go at planting our own class strawberry plant! In maths, we have been working together to solve problems involving money. We have used ideas from our peers to elabarote on and come up with detailed mathematical reasoning. In English, we have been looking at the key features of a non-chronological report and have been practising our use of relative clauses. In geography, we have been comparing maps of the UK from different time periods to consider how they have changed over time.
This week in Magnolias, we have looked at the reproduction in plants. To kick things off, we made wildflower seed bombs and threw them in a suitable place for them to grow. We then used microscopes to look at the different parts of the plant that are involved in plant reproduction. In art, we applied the hatching and shading techniques that we have been looking at to recreate a piece of art work by C.J Hendry. In English, we wrote and published our own version of the Land of Roar and worked hard to apply all of the fantastic writing skills we have been learning about over the term so far! In Maths, we have been applying our knowlegde of hundredths and tenths to solve problems and calcuations with thousandths.
