In Geography we have been learning to use grid referencing. We had the opportunity to look at the features of maps, focusing on Basingstoke and the surrounding area. After this we played a game of battleships to perfect our grid referencing skills and to put them in to practice.
In our Longitudinal Study for Science we have been investigating the birds in our local area. We have been going on bird walks and will be collating evidence over the rest of the academic year.
Which birds have you spotted at home? How is this the same/different to the birds we see at school? Do you predict that the type of birds we see will change over the year? How will the seasons affect this?
We've got off to a great start this half term. We have been loving our science lessons; we've been investigating what happens to different materials when forces are applied to them and continued our longitudinal study based around birds.
In geography we have already had a go on Google Earth and used this to label our map with significant landmarks in England. We will be looking at Wales this week!
We are enjoying our first narrative piece of writing in English and will be using the new skills we have learnt in our Apprentice Pieces on Tuesday.
Remember to bring in your trip letters, check back here next week for photos!
We can't believe that's it's nearly half term! We've had a super final week; completing our final lesson on The Great Fire of London and wrapping up our RE, health & wellbeing and music topics. After the half term we'll be looking at shape in maths and in English we will be staring our first piece of narrative writing. We can't wait! Have a safe and fun weeks break.

Anti-bullying day! 4.10.17
On Wednesday we spent our day doing lots of different activities centred around Anti-bullying. We reminded ourselves how to be good friends and what to do if we, or someone else, has a problem. We also enjoyed a play called 'Just Joshing' by a theatre company which focussed on how to be a good friend.
