Autumn 2

During our science lesson we have been learning about Magnets.  We tested different objects around the room to see if they if they were magnetic. We had to decide if all metals were magnetic.


During our DT lessons we are looking at structures.  We used different materials to try and design a structure and see how tall we could build them.

I was so impressed with the creative homework again for this half term.  There are some fantastic piece which are displayed in school and will be till the end of this half term.  Well done to everyone who completed there homework.


This week in science we looked at the digestive system and how our body processes food.  We talked about the different stages and all the organs involved with  the process.  We then went on to recreate the process using objects as the different parts of system so the children could understand the process.  We had a lot of fun.
