Welcome to Redwood Class
We made it to the end of another week. I hope you have had fun doing some of the activities I have set for you this week. At the Egerton household we made a rainbow for our window to support the NHS and as part of a rainbow trail. Have any of you taken part in this too? A familiar face has also been sitting in front of the rainbow, he misses you all too.
I hope you are getting some fresh air, the sunshine is set to return just in time for the Easter Holidays. Have you been taking part in the Joe Wick daily workout and more importantly did you all dress up for it today?
Please keep any of the topic work you have been doing so once we are back in the classroom we can put it on display and celebrate everything you have achieved during this time.
I came across the 30 day lego challenge...thought this would be of interest to some of you. If you make any stop motion videos, remember I love to see them.
Enjoy your Easter holidays. Do not eat too much chocolate!!
As always you're all in my thoughts and I miss you all a lot.
Keep Safe and Take Care
For a termly or yearly overview of what we will be learning this academic year, please see 'what we learn/curriculum'.
We have been looking at light and dark and how we need light in order to see. We began by conducting an experiment where we investigated how much light we needed in order to see items in a box. We noticed that we needed a lot of holes because one hole only let through a small amount of light.
Next we made Rainbow Whizzing Wheelers to investigate the colours of the spectrum which make white light.
In art we have been looking at Aboriginal art work and how it is used to communicate journeys.
We began by looking at the symbols and their meanings, we then moved on to designing our own Aboriginal inspired art. Aboriginal art is made up of thousands of small dots, so to ensure we replicated this we experimented with different tools to see which one made the perfect dots for our art.
This half term in science we will be looking at Forces and Magnets. We began our unit by looking at the forces, push and pull. The class came up with a variety of ways that we use these forces in everyday life and within sport. These included batting a ball, rowing in a canoe and pushing our chairs in.
'The Resistance' also got in touch to ask if Redwood could investigate the best surface for their new droid, R3D, to travel on. An important experiment as this vital information would lead to the capture of Kylo Ren!
Isla said "Wood would be the best surface for the droid" and the rest of the class agreed. There was a mixed result for the hardest surface with grass and concrete getting as many votes as each other.
