Oak have had an extraordinary week! We have been super busy learning about instructional writing, 3D shapes, Maiden Castle and all about bones!
In English, we are starting to write our instructions on how to make felt for our DT project. We have been reading ‘How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth’ to help us understand all about instructions. On Tuesday, we had to write some instructions about buttering bread, although we had to make sure that we were REALLY specific.
In Science, we have been learning all about vertebrates (animals with spines) and invertebrates (animals without spines), as well as the difference between endoskeletons (animals with bones on the inside of their body), exoskeletons (animals with bones on the outside of their body) and hydrostatic skeletons (those with NO skeletons). We then got to find out all about the bones in the human body and then got to make our own!
In Maths, we have been learning about the different properties of shapes. We then got to find out all about the properties of 3D shapes by making them!
In History, we have been super busy learning how to use artifacts to understand the time! We helped the curious curator to match the labels to the artifacts then wrote our ideas about the ones that were missing. We then helped to solve the mystery of what happened at Maiden’s Castle by looking at evidence that has been found there.
