We have been investigating how to turn a solid (chocolate) in to a liquid. We tested different temperatures and showed our results on a bar graph. We learned that chocolate starts to melt in our mouths after about 10 seconds!! It took everything we had not to chew it!

Today, we have taken part in Anti-bullying Week. We discussed what the term 'bullying' means and how we can help if we see or hear it happening. We made our own word searches to help us to remember key vocabulary and designed our own superhero capes to show what we would do to help someone who might be hurting.

These are the faces of triumph and celebration! We have spent a great amount of time over the last two weeks learning to read music and play in time with each other. We appear to have achieved it!

This week in Bolton class we have spent time learning how to make cave paintings, how to use column method and empty number lines in maths and most excitingly, testing which drink is the fizziest!

Over the last week, Bolton class have been looking in to States of Matter. We have explored how solids, liquids and gases move, as well as conducted an experiment to find out what happens when we try to remove gas from diet coke.

We have been very busy in Bolton class, learning all about Relationships. We have written a recipe for 'A Good Friend', tried to help people when dealing with change and we have even designed our own pants!

Skara Brae!!

 

We have been learning about the Stone Age. Have a look at our videos about Skara Brae (a Stone Age settlement) which was discovered in Scotland, in 1925.

For RE day we have been looking at Creation and thinking about what we are grateful for. We explored pastels and drew our representation of the Story of Creation. Here's how they turned out!

Bolton class have had an exceptionally busy Science day, where they have be learning all about plants. We have been on plant hunts, made leaf rubbings, completed celery experiments and worked hard to identify the parts of plants. Have a look at what we got up to!

We have spent a lot of time working on our dribbling and passing skills. We are much more confident when passing to one another and our accuracy is much improved. We've had so much fun this week practising skills for our Handball unit.

This week in Bolton class we have been retelling the story of The Stone Age boy. We have worked incredibly hard and shown brilliant levels of concentration. Look at how proud we are!

In Science, we have continued to look at rocks. We have been testing whether certain rocks are hard, soft, durable, dense or permeable. We also used Venn diagrams to find similarities and differences.

In Bolton this week, we have been learning about rocks and how they are made. We have also looked at the rock cycle, sketched different types of rocks and compared how rocks feel. We have been amazing!

We are Bolton!

We used special art pencils to sketch our portraits. We took our time and drew as neatly and carefully as we could. Don't we look fantastic!?
Academic year 2019-2020

Today, we merged maths and science whilst we learned about magnets. Firstly, we tried to make a paperclip hover by using a magnet and string, then we moved on to testing the strength of different magnets and showed the results in a bar chart.

This week, we have learned about tally charts, pictograms and bar charts. We recorded how many burpees we could do and then showed our results using charts.

We are starting to write Newspaper reports to retell the story of how Howard Carter discovered the tomb of Tutankhamen. We have spent time dissecting example articles to identify the different features. We did a superb job!

Bolton's assembly this afternoon was amazing! You have worked incredibly hard in your music and PE lessons this week and you shone like the stars you are! Super job Bolton!

In French, we have made our own menus for a French cafe or Ice cream parlour. We wrote down all of the items that we were selling in French.

MUMMIES rule!! We have been spending time learning about mummification and today we followed instructions carefully and this was the end result...

Bolton News Reporters!

We have made our own news reports based on James and the Giant Peach. We tried to use lots of open questions so put your feet up, have a listen and RELAX.

The 999 Song

Still image for this video
We learned a song, to the tune of Three blind mice, about keeping safe and who can help us in an emergency. We talked about what is an emergency and what is not so that we know when we should call 999 or when we should call 101.

On Friday, we had PSHCEE day where we covered the 'Keeping myself safe' unit. We spent a great deal of time thinking about risks, health and safety procedures and peer pressure. We now know who to call should there be an emergency and even made posters to help others learn about positive and negative peer pressure. Videos and clips to follow!

Well done to Bolton class for their Sound assembly! What a brilliant and informative way to start our morning!

Sound!!!

Our sound unit has been very exciting and we have loved learning about how sound is made and how it travels. We used a tuning fork and placed it on to a drum with rice. It was fascinating to see how the rice vibrated across the skin of the drum. What was more exciting was when we placed the tuning fork in to water and the water splashed out of the container.

Bolton have been exploring sound. We have used a tuning fork to help us to see the vibrations.

We learned about Me and my Relationships and we talked about: PANTS, how our families are different but still have the same love, healthy and unhealthy relationships and we looked at how to help people if they need it.

We looked in to Mental Health this week and thought about why it is very important to take care of our mind. We thought about positive thoughts, played emotion games and discussed who would be able to help us if we needed to talk about something that was worrying us.

As part of Black History month we have been looking in to the life of Mary Seacole. We have created fact files and portraits as well as exploring different textures and materials when making a whole class mosaic portrait.

We have been block painting with potatoes. We carved our potatoes using paper clips and designed our print like Victorian artist, William Morris.

Bolton class have been working on Place Value and placing numbers on an Empty Number Line. It's not as easy as it looks!

Today we got out the feely buckets and we had to guess what was inside them without looking. We also sorted light source cards and talked about how a mirror works.
