Our week in the Silver Birches

In RE we are learning about Sikhism. We drew a picture of one of the 5 Ks. One of the 5 Ks is called Kesh. This is where Khalsa Sikhs grow their hair long as hair is a prescious gift from God. We also watched a video about the 5 Ks.

In English we have been writing a recount about Traction Man's day. Traction Man is a toy action figure who goes on lots of adventures.
One of Traction Man's missions is to save the farm animals from the evil pillows on the planet duvet. Traction Man has a pet called Scrubbing Brush.

In art we have been looking at patterns by William Morris. We looked at different designs and selected parts to create our own patterns. 

In maths we have been learning about fractions. We even got to work with cookies and eat them too! It was the best lesson ever.
We have been finding thirds of lots of thing, like 300ml of water shared between 3 is 100ml.

In PE we have been learning Indian dancing. We have learnt some moves called the greeting, the march, the peacock and the ballet pose. 

In science we have learning about different types of rock. We carried out a hardness test on limestone, granite, marble, chalk, sandstone and slate to find out which rocks were hard and soft.
