What happens to the crater when we drop a ball into flour from different heights?

29th October


We will be returning to school in just a few days. Here are some of the things we will be doing when we go back. Our topic will be the Indus Valley and in science we will be learning about Forces. You can find knowledge organisers about these in the folders at the bottom of the page. In maths, we will be learning about statistics.


Do you know what statistics are? Can you find out?


We will be getting going with some computing work on Thursday afternoons, starting with spreadsheets and internet safety.

Can you think of where these simple machines are used in everyday life?

Why don't you take a look in the new 'Music' folder and listen to the song 'Earth, Space and all that Jazz' ? It will help you to remember some of your science facts!

We've completed lots of tests this week, started swimming and thought about our values. We have practised saying the 5W 5R rap. Hollie and Niyah have been elected as our school councillors and Ben and Chloe are our new Albany ambassadors. 

Our New Board!

We've got lots of exciting work lined up for this half-term. In English, we'll be starting with poetry and in maths, we'll be developing our knowledge of place value. Our geography topic will be about America and our theme in science is Earth and Space. 


Can you think of any American landmarks?

Do you know who Neil Armstrong is?

The class will be swimming on Monday afternoons with Mrs Goffin and Mr Still.
