It’s electrifying!

Our new unit in Science this term is Electricity. Yesterday we made circuits, testing different materials to see if they would complete the circuit. We tested paper clips, split pins, paper, tin foil, greaseproof paper and rubber bands. We found that some were conductors and some were insulators. Conductors allowed electricity to flow through them, like metals but insulators didn’t.

Stone Age Felt Purses

Ash class have had a busy couple of weeks, working hard in their English and DT to create Stone Age Purses made from felt. They have had to follow the process through their English lessons, writing instructions so they could make the felt. The felt making was really fun and the children were very focused!

Then they had to make a prototype in DT to check that we had enough felt for the size purse that we wanted to make. They practiced with a few different sizes to see which would work best.

Finally, it was time to cut the felt into shape and sew together into purses. This was quite tricky but Ash class showed a lot of resilience!

Have a look at the finished pieces below.

Stone Age Boy

Last week, Ash class were looking at Stone Age Boy in their English lessons. Below are some examples of descriptions of the moment the boy and Om enter the terrifying cave. We hope you enjoy reading them!

 

Evelyn

The boy followed Om to the crumbly, rocky cave. Then Om saw the cave. Om said to the boy ‘follow me to the cave.’ Then they both entered the cave. Om and the boy saw some paintings. They were bright red and they sprinkled some san on the paintings and tiptoed around quietly so no one could hear them.

Om saw a really good painting. ‘Wow!’ she shouted, ‘that painting is amazing!’ They were really shiny but some of them had cracks on them. They still walked on, then the boy and Om saw a big shadow and one of the paintings came alive!

It was a big, hairy violent bear. They didn’t like the bear and the bear gave a push. The boy fell down, down, down.

 

Sophie

The boy and Om walked carefully into the mysterious cave. The boy was nervous. So they went into the cave then they started to draw some paintings on the wall. The boy was getting more brave because he trusted the girl.

After that they had no room on the wall for any more paintings so they went to the other side. But before they could get there, an enormous shadow was standing right in front of them. It was a scary, large bear!

 

Jacob D

They boy and Om walked for hours until they came to a cave. The boy was feeling tired but when he saw the cave he felt excited. The boy and Om crept into the cave quietly. Inside they saw cave paintings. Om painted a picture like the boy but the boy saw something. It crept out of the shadows. It was an ominous bear! The boy whispered ‘run’ so Om did. Just as she did, the boy fell down, down, down.

 

Jack B

As the boy followed Om, they came to a halt. They had got to the cave. ‘Follow me, it is dark and gloomy,’ stated Om. The boy felt ominous as he walked in the gloomy cave because he had never been in a cave before, after they got in he put his glasses on just in case.

The boy whispered ‘Do you know that you have animals around us?’

‘They’re my paintings.’ Laughed Om. Then the boy saw a shadow.

He whispered to himself ‘just another painting.’

‘That’s a bear!’ shouted Om.

The boy mumbled ‘stay away! Shoo! I’ll fight you!’

Butser Ancient Farm

Ash class had an amazing time at Butser Ancient Farm yesterday. We did lots of activities, starting with a talk in the very smokey Stone Age house. The house had a skull on the outside and paintings on the walls inside. Then we went outside and did some Wattling to make fences so the animals couldn’t escape! After that we went to make some beautiful jewellery using copper wire. It was quite tricky but we were all very resilient and listened closely to the instructions. We ate our lunch in the smokey Stone Age house so we were very warm. After lunch we carved chalk using flint pieces and made the green by rubbing dock leaves on it. Finally we became archaeologists and dug for artifacts which was very exciting when we found bones and pieces of pottery.

Tweet Tweet!

At the end of last half term, Ash class investigated if birds only eat the food they like. We predicted if we thought it was true or false and then tested it. We realised we wouldn’t be able to interview birds to find out so we had to try a different way. We used different utensils to be the bird beaks and resources to be the types of food. We found that birds only eat the food they can find and that they can fit in their beaks. Here are some pictures of our testing!
