Class news

Summer Term 1
This term our topic is Global Gardens. We have been learning about plants and how they grow in this country and also finding out about the diversity of plants in different countries. We enjoyed looking at different seeds and then planting them. We planned a fair test to see what factors a seed needs to be able to germinate and we investigated different types of seed dispersal. 
We have enjoyed learning about sustainability and have been thinking of lots of different ways that we can make our school a greener place.
Spring Term
This term we have been learning about Florence Nightingale. We found out about her life and how she made a difference. We have enjoyed learning about keeping ourselves safe online. We had a great time learning about algorithms and we used these to design and build some robots from recycled materials. In science, we learnt all about different animals and the habitats in which they live.
