Cool(ing) Dinos

Date: 20th Oct 2018 @ 7:15am

This week saw 10 of Class 3 take part in the inter-school tag rugby competition.  They did incredibly well, losing 1, winning 1 and drawing 1.  There will be a full report in the children's monthly newsletter due out next week. Well done team Woore!

In Maths we have been challenging ourselves with that old favourite: long division!  The children have been very impressive in the way they have kept plugging away at what can be a difficult skill.

In English, Mr Felton has been sharing a new book with us, 'Rose Blanche' by Philip Pullman.  It is a story of a girl growing up in Nazi Germany.  We don't know much more than that at the moment (it's all very mysterious!), but we have been writing descriptions and diaries to get to know Rose a little better.

In Science we discussed how quickly a creature could lose its body heat.  The experiment involved plastic bottles (our dinosaurs!), warm water and a thermometer.  The results were inconclusive, as we were trying to decide if big dinos cooled quicker than small.  Maybe we have to another go!

Finally, it was wonderful to have Mrs Mason back with us on Friday for RE.  The children have got started on a lovely craft for the church, as part of our Remembrance day commemorations.

 

PS: Topic projects are due in this week!

PS2: Also, there has been a slight change to next half-term's Geography topic; it was due to be Eastern Europe but will now be Map Skills.
