The Big Question

24.02.22

 

If you had a river of Ooblek, what conclusion could you make about the best way to get across?

 

Adventurers 4 investigated the best way to travel through Ooblek. We chose 4 methods of travel, these were; walking along the Ooblek; jumping across the Ooblek; travelling by boat; and driving in a car. Through the experimental process we found that to remain solid, the Ooblek required a downward force, and therefore jumping was the most effective method of travel. The other methods either sank the transport or provided to much resistance to move along. 

 

Vocabulary drawn from investigation:

  • downward force
  • resistance
  • liquid
  • solidify
  • pressure
  • speed
  • solid
  • force
  • sink
  • float

We will look at the importance of leadership and the meaning of democracy and its origins, before moving on to how this applies practically in communities, both school-wide, locally and nationally. We finish by recognising issues of justice, rights and responsibilities in their own setting and the wider world.

Slavery Around the World

For the rest of the half term we will be exploring slavery around the world, through our Dimensions curriculum. Our theme is called 'Cry Freedom'. Cry Freedom is a thematic unit based around the history of slavery. We start by learning what slavery is, looking at some of the reasons behind it and examples of it, before moving on
to find out about slavery in Europe, Asia, Africa and America
throughout history. Then, we learn about two key people who
were instrumental in making slavery illegal, before investigat-
ing modern day slavery and what we can do to stand against
it, like the courageous abolitionists of the past.

 

 

   Anti Bullying and Road Safety Week

 

17.11.21

 

This week we are supporting Anti- Bullying and Road Safety Week at North Crescent.

 

On Monday, as part of Anti Bullying Week, we pledged our support with odd socks day. It was the perfect way to celebrate what makes us all unique. Thank you for your co-operation!

 

Additionally, in our classes, we are taking part in a number of activities to develop our knowledge and understanding of what these days stand for, and their importance!

 

                              

 

 

Our Science Big Question (liquids) 

LI: To investigate the viscosity of liquids

 

16.11.21

 

Today in Adventurers 4 we took part in an investigation to explore the viscosity of liquids. As a class, we were provided with a selection of resources, without the purpose of the lesson made clear. We then had to act as scientists to depict what the investigation could be. Once we had discovered the purpose, we discussed our method, made a prediction and began testing. We made a number of discoveries throughout the session, for instance that the most viscous substance was olive oil (we also found out how this can be used to separate liquids from one another).  

                                     

 

16.11.21

 

This Friday we will be supporting Children in Need. Children therefore may come into school wearing non- school uniform. We do ask for the children to kindly bring in a small donation on the day, to aid in supporting the charity, to change the lives of children and young people across the UK.

 

Thank you in advance, 

Miss. Couchman

Our Fossil Find

 

08.11.21

 

Today in Adventurers 4 we went on a fossil hunt as paleontologists. We discovered animal remains in our forest area. Many of us believed that it may be a fox or a dog, however the exact species is yet to be confirmed. 

Dimensions- Rocky the Findosaur

 

 

“Rocky the Findosaur” is a thematic unit based
around rocks and fossils, with a key focus on
science. We will learn about different types of
rocks, with the help of original animated dinosuar
character, Rocky. This theme also takes in solids,
liquids and gases through focusing on Mount
Vesuvius, which is where Rocky spends his time
exploring.

This may include: 

  • A fiction or non-fiction book. 
  • A recipe. 
  • A bus timetable. 
  • Subtitles on the television. 
    There are many different opportunities for children to read. However please ensure that your child is reading for the expected amount if time, to aid their learning. Today they came home with two books which they must bring to and from school daily. 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation,
