Pine Class 2021-22

We have been busy this term learning about the human body, skeletons and muscles, we love maths games and the wordless book Journey has inspired our diary writing


Term 3

We have been dividing using Numicon, before learning the formal written method. We also measured in cm and m and converted measurements.

Term 3 2019-20

In Science we learned about changing state, we enjoyed learning how to read a thermometer and also liked making our own water cycle.


We have been learning about rocks, fossils and soils and loved our hot task of making a dinosaur fossil. 

What a State we have been in! We have been learning about changing state of materials. We used thermometers to measure temperature and compared temperatures in and outside school. We heated and cooled materials and explore freezing water and what temperature this occurred at. We loved making rain in our water cycle bowls. Finally, we changed the state of chocolate and made our own molds to reverse the change in. 


Leeds Castle trip, what an amazing day. We enjoyed crazy golf, the fantastic play area, the maze, the castle and our own birds of prey display. 

In Design and Technology we learned some sewing stitches, we learned how to thread needles and make a knot, we looked at a variety of Christmas tree decorations and designed our own decoration. We thought of the type of stitches that would be suitable to join materials, use for decoration and to attach ribbon, beads, material designs and buttons. We also considered threads and materials that would look attractive together. We are proud of them, we hope you like them too. 

Learning about the Stone Age and Bronze Age in Pine Class. We learned about Stonehenge and thought about reasons why it was built. We also enjoyed finding out how bronze was made and considered how it was used and how it changed people's lives.
