Welcome to Oak Class 2020 Autumn Term.
This term our topic is Remember, Remember... As part of this topic we will be focusing on 3 key concepts: democracy, rights, and sacrifice. We will be looking at the lives of significant individuals including Malala Yousafzai, Rosa Parks, Guy Fawkes.
In Science we have been investigating different materials and their properties. We have been conducting experiments to find out which material would be best for flying a kite, using tissue paper, plastic, cardboard, and tin foil. The children made predictions about the materials and then tested their stretchiness, strength, and how waterproof they were. We decided that plastic would be the best material for kite making as it doesn't rip very easily and it is waterproof!
The children have been having lots of fun with Mr Bolton in PE. They have been using balloons and bean bags to practice their throwing and catching skills.
We have been looking at Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot as part of our topic work Remember, Remember...
We have looked at the story and considered why we celebrate fireworks night on the 5th November.
We have created some fireworks art using watered down paint and straws.
