Some of our learning so far…

In Geography, we have been learning about Scandinavia and created presentations for holidaymakers on why they should visit Norway…

We’ve been having fun in Science this term learning all about materials and their suitability to different uses. We carried out an experiment to find out the best thermal insulator and researched advantages and disadvantages of different materials then used the app Chatterpix to share our findings.

In art, we loved finding out about Frida Kahlo. We learnt about her culture and loved recreating her work as well as using it to inspire our own self portraits.
