Our trip to Bolton Abbey

We went on a visit to church to learn about the Holy Communion.

In Science we have been learning all about Earth and Space. We really enjoyed using the inflatable planets and putting them in the right order. We learnt lots of facts about each planet in our Solar System. We also created a moving diagram which shows how the Earth and moon orbit and rotate around the sun!

As part of our topic ‘Brazil’, we have been learning about the famous, religious carnival that takes place in February across Brazil, the most famous being in Rio de Janeiro. We had an amazing morning with Mitch, the leader of Todmorden Samba band, who came in to teach us about different Brazilian instruments, basic rhythms and helped us create a Samba piece. We loved making lots of noise and taking it in turns to play the different instruments.

In music, we have been learning how to play the song ‘Human’ by Rag ‘n’ Bone man. We have been working super hard and have enjoyed showing each other how good we are getting!

For world book day we joined up with Year 2 and did some shared reading! It was great fun!

We have been investigating materials in Science.

Our topic for this term was Brazil. We really enjoyed learning about the work of the artist Romero Britto and we created our own self-portraits in the style of his art work! Look how amazing they are!

In Maths we have recently been looking at bar charts, pictograms and line graphs. We have really enjoyed working in pairs to interpret different graphs and had a lot of fun collecting our own data to create our own.
