In P2-4 this week :
Harry and Charlie : Yesterday (Thursday) we went to Marvellous Magnet and we did this thing where you get a magnet and you get a ring and you put the magnet next to the ring to test the magnetic field.
Yesterday in Maths Jake, Darwin and the Circles were practising our money skills. The money activities were Mrs Legge testing us with a café menu, using the computer to practise paying for the things in the best way and a shop to practise working out change from a £1.
Olivia and James: On Thursday in Marvellous Magnets they told us when the solar wind hits the planet it bounces off and makes the Northern Lights.
You would put your magnet on the middle of the mat and use a ring to see if we could feel the force of the magnet pulling the ring.
Peggy, Ben and Joe: In reading skills we were practising predicting after the story had finished.
In gym we were learning how to do long distance running.
In gym we learned one of the training exercises that athletes do- one person walks round the track and the other person jogs, when the jogging person tags the walking person they swap round.
Keira and Alexander: I have learned in writing that you can use openers to write a report.
In writing the P4s have been learning a juicy paragraph. The first sentence is called the topic sentence and this is like the top bun of a burger.
Serena and Darwin: In the magnet science we learned how to make magnets float by putting the same poles together.
In gym we did running round an oval shape and we did an activity which was running round and the person who was running touches the other person on the other side of the oval and then they run across the middle of the oval.
Sam and Jake: On Monday we made a puppet show to tell the parables and miracles of Jesus.
In Marvellous Magnets we were given magnetic field detectors and a small ball that represented the Earth and we could investigate how strong the Earth’s magnetic field was.
Carlo and Emma: The P4s went swimming this week and they learned how to swim for endurance and we swam as many lengths as we could.
On Thursday we wrote about the two churches that we went to last week.
