We have been learning about States of matter. We have found out the properties of solids, liquids and gases. We have done experiments with ice cubes to see what affect different temperatures of water had on them. We timed how long our finger took to dry on it's own and with us blowing on it. We also looked at how the water cycle worked using a glass jar, ice, foil and warm coloured water.

We were learning to understand that technology's design can influence people's choices. We learnt that persuasive design is what companies use to try to persuade us to use their apps and purchase things from them. We then thought about how the internet influences us and how it can change people's thoughts, feelings and behaviour both positively and negatively.
We had a taster session of badminton. Great fun!
We all dressed up in numbers and did fun maths activities to raise money for the NSPCC.
Christmas sewing. We all designed and made a felt hanging decoration. Our brief was to use a patch to applique onto our decoration and to use cross stitch either to sew the patch on or as decoration.
We made Christmas biscuits. We had to read the recipe and follow it in the correct order. We used maths because we had to weigh out all the ingredients accurately. Mrs Hillier and Mrs Sweeney put our biscuits in the oven for us.
We all took part in fund-raising for Children in Need and Alzheimers.
We all participated in anti-bullying week. We wore our odd socks and invented our own anti-bullying heroes.
