This week the children in Elm class have enjoyed planning and making their own cloth using a simple loom. It took a few attempts to get used to the weaving pattern but they are getting there! We have explored the clothing that would be typical in the iron age and have tried to replicate the simple patterns using woollen materials.

This week Elm Class explored in detail what makes up food chains. We began by discussing producer and consumers and came up with our own ideas. We then researched a range of food chains. Our research led us to living creatures that were producers and consumers. We learnt that light was needed to drive all food production. We then wondered how creatures survive in the darkness of caves and deep underwater.

This week Elm Class have spoken about the role of archaeologist in history.  We wanted to find out how archaeologists work and the tools that they use. We prepared some objects for burial. Forests schools then buried our range of objects in the ground where we will leave them until the last week of term. We will then excavate them to see what remains and the changes that the materials have occurred. Recording the results as archaeologists.

ELM

 

This week the children in Elm Class have enjoyed lots of reading activities as part of our book week celebrations. We enjoyed our stay and read, author visit, time travelling televisions and hearing about the adventures of Maurice and his Educated Rodents. Over the week we have developed our key skills in reading by summarising stories and inferring information from stories and characters. A fantastic week was had by all!

This week in Elm class we have worked on our instructions. We watched a video of robots struggling to interact with our human world and discussed how the instructions (algorithms) that control them were not accurate enough. We explored how instructions needed to be accurate by getting Mr Brooks out of the classroom door and then had a go ourselves outside. It was challenging because the ‘robots’ kept doing exactly as we said!

In metacognition lessons we have looked at what makes a successful learner. Last week we looked at motivation and how famous people are motivated. We had a good discussion about what motivates us and once we knew how we could use that to be more successful in our learning and through life.

This week Elm class have looked at how to make a circuit. They discovered how to use a cell, wires and a bulb to make a simple series circuit. The children began completing challenges; who could make a circuit that made a noise, who could make a circuit that lit up and moved and who could make a circuit with a bright bulb.

This week the children have enjoyed science where we explored the basic principles of a circuit. We used circuit maker breakers to model a electronic circuit using ourselves as the wires. We began looking at what materials we could hold at the same time. We then recorded our results in the form of diagrams. The children were full of enthusiasm for science and were very excited to use the practical equipment.

Some fantastic learning behaviours on show in Elm Class this week. We have worked hard on our poetry with some wonderful imagery.  Our poems sing and dance from the page. We have also  developed our observational skills in science and proven that the water cycle exists. We used scientific language in our discussions and were inspired to ask relevant and exciting questions about our learning.
