Peer Mediator Conference video

 Although it feels like a lifetime ago, at the end of January a number of children from Ivy class - who act as Peer Mediators in the playground - visited Sheffield University for a conference celebrating all of the fantastic things we do at Bradfield Dungworth and to take ideas from other schools. Below is the video posted on YouTube - see if you can spot any of our class in the video.

27 degrees

Alice Rosa Ferguson(about a year ago)

The answer is 27. I did 90-63, which gave me the answer!

Dan(about a year ago)

I think angle A is 27 degrees

campbell(about a year ago)

117

seamus(about a year ago)

27

Molly Axon(about a year ago)

I think the answer is 117 degrees because you take 63 away from 180 because it is a straight line and a straight line is 180 degrees

Mert(about a year ago)

17

Emily Rose Lister Tingle(about a year ago)

The answer is 27 !! I get it kind of its also quite easy because you just do column subtraction.

matthew b(about a year ago)

the answer is 61

Fran(about a year ago)

Acids and Alkalis

On Tuesday 10th March we had Jack from the AMRC back in with us. This time, however,  we weren't looking at using tinkercad for 3D printing. We did some work around acids and alkalis. We got to taste very weak acids and alkalis. We also talked about the PH scale and used acids and alkalis to make a neutral solution. We found out that toothpaste is a weak alkali which helps counteract the acid created from saliva mixing with sugar. 

 We talked about how, although soap is an alkali, we can't use a strong alkali on our skin as it would be corrosive. 

Human Development

As part of our topic on life cycles, we have been thinking about human development. Last week we thought about just how rapid development can be during infancy and we also considered prenatal development too. Below is a powerpoint we created with some key changes that occur during infancy. Feel free to download the presentation and add photos of yourslef at each stage.  

Earlier in the topic, we also used ageing apps to think about how we may look when we are older. See how Ivy class teacher Mr Beagle might look.

I learnt that when they were about to get on the ship they would get stripped and checked if they had a disease but if they did they would have to go back to there home . also if they were checked on the ship and they were ill they would of got thrown off board.

Dora Jones(about a year ago)

I really enjoyed the trip to the house of William Wilberforce, first we looked at some old artefacts. Then we had lunch, before making African masks. I had a great time and would happily go again!

Alice Rosa Ferguson(about a year ago)

I learnt that women killed their children as a rebellion and William Wilberforce was the founder of the RSPCA.

Richard(about a year ago)

I leaned that William Wilberforce was a religious person

Richard(about a year ago)

It was really fun and educational and I enjoyed it

Moon phases

Continuing with our space topic, we planned and carried out an experiment to investigate the phases of the Moon.  All we needed was a torch, a polystyrene Moon and a very dark classroom.   We worked scientifically in our groups and made sure we checked our results by repeating the experiment.  Finally, we made a Moon phase dial to record our findings.

Rapid Recall mats

 We recently invested in rapid recall mats from Year 1 to Year 6. They enable us to practice key skills on a regular basis and are perfect for spaced learning. 

Rounding

While learning how to round numbers, we stumbled across a video with an interesting approach to how to round. It involved imagining a number line as a hill and it really helped with some of the children's understanding. Find a link to the video below as well as pictures of the children's whiteboards.
