DT designing shelters to protect us from a natural disaster!

In our DT lessons with Miss Sampson, we have been researching different types of shelters, investigating different materials and designing our own model shelter which is both waterproof and able to withstand strong winds! Here we are investigating different materials...

What impact are we having on the Earth?

 

As part of our topic on Natural Disasters, we have posed the question: 'What impact are we having on the Earth?'

We have had some fantastic, insightful discussions this week about climate change. Did you know that the planet's average surface temperature has risen about 1.62 degrees since the late 19th century, a change driven largely by increased carbon dioxide and other human-made emissions into the atmosphere?

We have been exploring the difference between climate change and the weather and have learnt that the weather changes daily, but climate change happens over a long period of time. However, this brought up lots more questions from the children about our environment, so we decided to investigate the temperature and rainfall over the course of one week and see if we can spot any patterns.

Here we are setting up our thermometers and rain measuring devices! I wonder what the results will show?

World Book Day fun in Deer Class!

We loved World Book Day this year! Not only did we have the opportunity to dress up as our favourite book characters, but we also got to listen to some of our favourite stories being read by different members of staff!

We spent time sharing stories with Year 3 and in our writing session in the afternoon, we explored a new story called 'The Arrival' by Shaun Tan. Our curious minds tried to tell the story as this particular book does not have any words!

To top off the week, Miss Anstey announced that we had raised lots of money for new books during our school sponsored read. We cannot wait to decide on what to buy for our class!

STEM Week in Year 6...

We had an amazing time during STEM week in Year 6. We learnt to use saws safely to cut the wooden frame and we accurately cut triangular gussets to attach the frame - this blew our minds!

Excellent engineering and team work skills were seen throughout the week by the Deer Class. We cannot wait to finalise our car designs and get started on the outer shell!

What have the Deer Class been up to in their first week back?

This week started with a practice air raid siren, just like the one used in WW2! We took cover underneath our tables until the 'all clear' was given!
