We took pieces of play dough and applied various forces. We made observations of the shape before and after to see the effect of the force. Careful measuring with a ruler was essential and we did a great job.
Jayden is busy at work using practical apparatus to help him subtract with renaming. Keep up the good work!
This week we have been busy designing a bridge to cross the River Aire. We made these models to represent our designs. I sure you would agree they would certainly liven up the waterfront in Leeds! We used lots of new skills including measuring, sawing, using glue guns and reinforcing joints.
This week we have been learning about how Leeds Corn Exchange has changed over the years. We learnt how in the past it was used for the trading and storage of corn. However, today you are more likely to see people enjoying a coffee or a hair cut. We acted out the scenes of the trading floor of the past and then the interactions seen today.
Here are a few pictures from our first week in the art studio working on the little mermaid. We made the underwater palace, sea scales and sea drops. We have also made some amazing drawings of fish and shells. Please make sure you come to our celebration next week to see them all!
This week we visited Leeds to find historic buildings and the river Aire. Seeing the river Aire was a highlight for most of us but for others it was seeing the inside of the corn exchange.
Our value this week has been kindness. After hearing Mrs Stott’s story about a neighbour who secretely put out and collected people’s bin as an act of kindness, we thought we would have a go. We have been acting as kindness ninjas all week, secretly doing our own kind acts around school.
We used sorted the scrapshed junk into different materials. We found plastics, rubber, wood, cardboard and metal to name a few. After this we sorted using properties such as hard and soft, rigid and flexible and shiny and dull.
A strange happpening occurred at ACE this week. Year 2 found an alien in the school grounds. He said he was looking for Leodis and the river Aire. We used maps and atlases,to prove we were in Leeds but he did not believe us. We still have more convincing to do next week.
After enjoying reading Gorilla we acted it out for ourselves!
