Our class read for Autumn Two

Come and look at all the wonderful things we have been learning about this year!

Autumn Two

In Science, we started work on our new topic called Properties of Materials. We became a Beach Clean-up Team and it was our job to use different methods of separating materials to clean up the plastic pollution in our beach samples.

Autumn One

For our Sensational Starter, Newhall Archaeologists had a mysterious box delivered to school. First we had to work out where the box had come from using the clues on the outside. After working out it had come from Guatemala, we opened it up to find a Mayan calendar inside.

Wet Washcloth In Space - What Happens When You Wring It? | Video

In Science this week, we have been discussing Gravity. We discussed how Gravity is an invisible force that pulls objects toward each other. Earth's gravity is what keeps us on the ground and what makes things fall. We then started to discuss how astronauts do not really feel the effects of Gravity in Space and watched the following video. We were amazed by what we saw!

In History we have been learning about the different buildings that could be found in a Mayan city and their purpose. We learnt that a Mayan temple was used for religious ceremonies and sometimes people were even sacrificed to the gods at the top. We then used a set of instructions to build our own Mayan temples.

Why don't you try building your own Mayan temple at home?

This week in History we have learnt that Mayans told stories about their lives through their art work. We drew our own pictures to show different Mayan stories.
