​In the news...


November

To begin our new topic 'Street Detectives', we invited Mrs Twyman into school to show us some pictures and tell us about how Whitley has changed in living memory. We were amazed by the photographs and asked some very thoughtful questions. Did you know ASDA used to be a hospital and the IBIS hotel used to be a zoo? 

 

 ​

We went on a trip on the Coventrian Narrow Boat on November 9th. We had a fantastic day learning all about the waterways. We even got to work a real lock at Sutton Stop! During the journey, we followed a map and identified the bridges we passed and the places we knew along the way. It was a brilliant day! 

 

​ 

 

To round up our 'Land Ahoy' topic we have been making boats using plastic bottles, wood, spoons and elactic bands​!

 

First we had to measure and saw the wood. Then we used the glue gun to stick the wood to the bottle.

 ​

After that we attached our elastic bands and then wound our spoons around the bands.

 

Finally we tested our bottle boats on the water. Thank you to all the adults who gave up their time to come and help us make our boats. ​

October 

In science we have been testing the suitability of different materials. We investigated which material would make the best dungarees by rubbing fabrics on the playground. 

  

  

Our new maths target is counting backwards from any number. We have been testing each other to practise.

  

 

September

We have be learning the story Mungo and the Picture Book Pirates. We have been using a story map to help us remember the story and have made changes to the story before writing our own. We have also compared the story to other books by the same author.

As part of our place value work in maths, we have been ordering random numbers from largest to smallest and also smallest to largest. We did find it a little bit tricky to begin with!
