Week 7 (WB 16/10/23)

In science this week we continued to look at forces. We have already explored contact forces, and today we looked at non-contact forces including magnetism. We learnt about magnetic fields, and then we tested a range of materials to classify them into magnetic and non-magnetic. We used our prediction skills.


Week 6 (WC 9.10.23)

In PE this week we have been developing our catching skills using one and two hands. We also looked at the speed in which we pass the ball. Well done to the entire class who performed brilliantly at our assembly, your speaking and singing skills were amazing!
