Oak Class

Week beginning 18th September

This week we have continued to study our text "The Cat Mummy". We discussed the features of an instruction text and then we were faced with a challenge!

Our challenge ... we had to sit back to back and draw a picture. Next we had to give clear and simple instructions to our partner so that they could reproduce the original picture.

Here is how we got on ...

In Science we have continued our work on forces. This week we focused upon air resistance and gravity. We discussed what factors make a parachute effective.

Using our knowledge we had to make our own parachutes.

Our first full week in Oak Class has certainly been busy.

We have begun our new topics. In science we are studying forces.

We spent time discussing different forces - gravity, friction and air resistance. We watched a variety of video clips and had to work out which forces were being used. Then we discussed a range of scientific vocabulary and their definitions - all were related to forces.

Here we are at work:
