Pupils worked in partners to deepen their understanding of programming vocabulary. This made it easier to debug the problems that the partnerships were encountering.
Over the course of this PE unit, we have perfected our skills in the Ancient Greece sports of the Olympics. We focussed on the original activities each week culminating in our final performance. We continued to try beating our personal bests and also our city competed against other Ancient Greek cities. This used our historical knowledge as well as our understanding of how to improve our sporting skills.
We used our knowledge of how sounds are made to create a telephone. We knew that sounds used vibrations to pass through their a string or air to get to our ears. Making the telephone helped us to deepen and strengthen our understanding and see vibrations happening in action!
This half term, we have been lucky enough to have a cricket coach teaching us how to bowl accurately.

To be a successful batter you need to have your feet in the correct place.
We used our knowledge of circuits to begin making our light-up Christmas cards. We had copper adhesive tape acting as our wires. We needed to carefully fold the tape which was very fiddly so that we could get the electricity to pass through the circuit successfully.
When the card is closed, the LED lights up to complete our design. We were so impressed with ourselves!
