From Mouth To Toilet.
Last week we learnt about the Digestive System.
Then we made our own!!
We saw what happened to the food at different parts of the journey from mouth to toilet!
We hotseated some people to see what they thought about Fairtrade..
We asked the farmer, the trader and the shopkeeper questions.
Welcome to - The Chocolate Factory and the Great British Biscuit!
We designed biscuits with squeezy chocolate and plain biscuits.
We had a chocolate tasting session. Which chocolate was best?? We graded them on taste,texture and smell.
Chocolate Buttons were our favourite!!!
We worked hard to create, make and play an old Viking Game called HNEFTAFL.
Antarctica phone call
Today we received a phone call from two scientists, Ali and Sam, working at the Rothera Research Station - the largest British Antarctic facility. We spent this morning researching about Ali and the research station in preparation to ask questions when she phoned at 10am. We must have asked around 50 questions - receiving a detailed and interesting answer to each. We learnt about their role monitoring the skua population on Antarctica.
Our Viking Dance.
Bones, Bones, Bones.
We made skeletons today.
Keldon's Uncle came and showed us some Viking artefacts.
We looked at shields, daggers, and even a sword.
We are incredibly proud of how Acorn Class conducted themselves during the Ceremony of the Planting of the Oak Tree in Dungworth Park.
We researched different things about Vikings and then presented our findings to the rest of the class.
Acorn Class are fantastic gymnasts...
We have been busy in our Science lessons looking at how exercise affects our brains..
We have done 3 tests. Get your children to tell you about them.
