Sharks - Using Mirrors to walk!!

Friday, November 27th, 2020

This week in science the children learned about how mirrors work and how light travels. They had the complicated task of using the mirrors to see there feet and try and walk around the maze on the playground without looking down they had to keep looking through the mirror. As you can see from the photos the children had a great time and they did really well.


Sharks have been reflecting in science

Friday, November 20th, 2020

This week in science Sharks have been learning all about reflection. The children had to find different materials like, sequins, gold paper, a wooden block, felt and then they had to predict which of the material would reflect. They then shone a torch through a small hole in a piece of card to see if the material reflected back onto the card. The children were surprised by some of the items that they chose actually did reflect when they predicted it wouldn’t.

We also had a class discussion about why children’s coats and bags have reflective materials on them.


Sharks - Shadow Puppets

Friday, November 13th, 2020

This week Sharks along with 2 other classes had our hook to our new topic light and sound, which is a science topic.

On Tuesday Charlie and his partner Libby came to show the children how to make shadow puppets. The children really enjoyed making the puppets and you would of seen them when they brought them home after school. Here are some of the photos from that day.

Sharks - We've finished our pop up books!

Friday, October 23rd, 2020

This week has seen the end of our first topic the Terrible Twits! The end of our topic was design and technology and how to make a pop up book. The children had to design their own book, using the different techniques they have been learning. They have learnt how to make levers and linkages.  The story part of the book is what the children wrote about in their best writes, which is a prank on Mr Twit.

The children have thoroughly enjoyed this topic. Please see below for photos of the children with their books.

We look forward to keeping up to date with you with our next topic after half term.


Sharks - We have been investigating lever & linkage mechanisms

Friday, October 16th, 2020

This week in topic we have been looking at different types of pop up books to get an understanding about how levers and linkages work, as next week we will be designing our own pop up books!

The children loved looking at all the different books and gave them some really great ideas to use in their own books. The photos below show some of the levers that the children designed. We did also make some other linkages and window flaps however we had technical issues with our camera so we don’t have photos of these, sorry!

Please log in again next week to see some of the children’s’ finished books!
