4S have loved learning about electricity in Science! We have used the equipment to make our own circuits with bulbs, motors and buzzers. We have investigated switches and even used our knowledge of conductors and insulators to make our own switches.
We have been working very hard preparing our Christmas crafts for our school crafts fair. We have been practising our sewing skills, designing beautiful Christmas cards and making some delicious, chocolatey goodies.
In Geography we have been studying the Lake District National Park. We have researched all about the region and it's history and about how the land is protected. We have also considered tourism in the Lake District and how it impacts the area.
We enjoyed a walk around our own local area of Bootle and compared the geographical features to those of the Lake District.
Finally, we used what we learned throughout the topic to make our own tourism videos to encourage people to visit. Take a look at some of our videos below:
Our first topic this year is all about the Romans. We have learned about the timeline of the Roman Empire, Gods and Goddesses, Gladiators in the Coliseum and Roman soldiers and their armour. We have even designed and made our own Roman shields.
Our first topic in computing was E-Safety. We have discussed and researched how to stay safe online and put the information we gathered into mind maps and posters using computer software.
Now, we are learning about spreadsheets and how we can use formulae to help us complete calculations.
We have been learning stories from the Bible about David. We performed the story of David sparing Saul's life through role play.
