Desktop publishing - We linked our science with our computing lessons by creating a magazine cover all about pollination. We chose a template, edited font, added images and thought about the layout carefully.

Science - Pollination - This week we learnt all about pollination in flowering plants. Take a look at some of our work.

School Trip - Chiltern Open Air Museum - We had so much fun gaining real experience of what life was life in the Stone Age and Iron Age. We hunted animals, learnt how every part of the animal could be used, foraged for food, started a fire and even turned milk into butter!

computing - we are learning about digital devices. We painted a picture of a tree with the resources on our table. We then compared this to using the paint program our laptops and compared the results

String telephones - We investigated how sound is made by vibrations travelling through a medium to the ear

Good vibrations - We discovered that sounds are made by vibrations! We could see the rice vibrating on the drums and we got splashed when we put the tuning fork in our bowl of water.

Science - Sound. To kick off our science this term, we went on a sound walk around the school to see what different sounds we could hear and suggesting how we though these sounds were made.

Story Structure: To help us understand the structure of narratives, we acted out and created freeze frames of the key parts of our class story 'Mr Mouse and the Queen’s knickers'
