This week we had loads of fun learning about how Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone! We used paper cups and string to explore how vibrations travel to produce noise. We thought about whether changing the length and thickness of the string would make a difference and how loud or quiet we were. Here are some photos of us in action!
On Tuesday we went on a class trip to Holyrood Park. We were learning about History and Archeology for our Scotland topic. We had to dress up as druids and explore! We got to make clay pots on the hillside. We were spinning wool, trying to make socks for a Roman soldier. Then we were weaving with willow sticks, helping a farmer to make fencing. It was a fantastic day!
This week we have been working really hard on our times tables. We started playing a new game. Miss Donohue throws a ball to us and asks us any times table. We are only allowed throw the ball back if we get it right!
We had one of our last lessons on our Scotland topic this week. We looked at the differences between living in the Scottish Highlands and living here in the city.
Our topic next term is Planet Earth so we learned a little bit about earthquakes. They are amazing! We wrote a bit about them in our weather booklets.
Because we are breaking away for the Easter Holidays this week, in Art we made our very own Easter Bunny Baskets. Have a look at us hard at work!
