We have been learning about levers, gears and pulleys and designed and made our own Rube Goldberg invention, which incorporated all of these.
We have been learning about different types of sentences and sentence structure. Take a look at some of our work.
As part of our Volcanoes and Earthquakes topic, we have made our own Modroc volcanoes and watched them erupt! We learnt about the parts of a volcano and irreversible changes.
We also wrote a description of a volcano erupting, practising using different types of sentences (simple, compound and complex).
We learnt about plate tectonics, including the different type of plate boundaries and the hazards which may be found there, e.g. volcanoes, earthquakes or mountain ranges.
We have been reading Tom's Midnight Garden, and using our range of sentence types and structures learnt, re-written the setting of the garden.
