Sycamore Class

It has been a wonderfully busy term, full of exploring, questioning and investigating. Through our theme of Being a Scientist we have explored materials and how there properties  are suitable for different roles. By planning careful experiments, the children have explored how to retrieve a solid back from a saturated solution and also explored the processes of filtration. sieving and evaporation. They have been thinking as Scientist and careful observing their results to write conclusions. In RE, we explored the topic of creation and how science has a different views but how they can still go hand -in-hand.

Linking to our materials we also explored the techniques of Batiking and printing and how wax can act as an impermeable barrier. We used a variety of materials to make own own batik cushions and explored how the wax worked. In art we were lucky enough to have the expertise of a parent who is a print artist. She shared her techniques with us and by making own own printing plates, we produced some beautiful prints of the nature around us.

It has been a wonderful term back in school. We have: read numerous books, explored the globe, written, worked our socks off on fractions and enjoyed being back at school with our friends and school community. We are all looking forward to next term already.
