Children in need!
How does water travel around the world?
The children kicked off the topic with some amazing presentations about India and the river Ganges that they did over half term. They have learnt about where India is in the world and can name some of the physical features as well as some of the main cities. They have also looked at how rivers are formed and why the river Ganges is so important.
They have been reading 'The rythm of the rain' and through it have followed Issac and his jar of water through rivers and seas and around the world!
The have created some fantastic setting descriptions in literacy for some of these wonderful places!
We are really lucky to have a specialist dance teacher who is amazing! The children learnt all about Bollywood dancing in their lessons this term and created a fantastice class piece which they all really enjoyed.
Will the earth ever run out of rain?
In science the children have been investigating solids, liquids and gases. They investigated how different chocolates melted at different rates and made their own crayon art by melting crayons!
They have learnt all about the water cycle and made their own water cycle in a bag to take home and explain to their families.
In writing we are going to answer our big questions by writing an information text to teach another class all about what we have learnt.
