Laver Class

11th January 2018

Happy New Year!

Laver Class have had a fantastic week at Lineham Farm. We've been cycling, climbing orienteering, exploring the woods, looking after animals...the list is endless! The children have been extremely positive, even when some of the activities were challenging. They returned on Wednesday, exhausted and muddy, but extremely proud of their achievements!

Laver Class and Loxley Class have learning a Christmas song this week to sing to the children in the seven other countries involved in our latest Erasmus project. Each country sang a Christmas song that we listened to by using our webcam on Google Hangouts. The other countries involved were Spain, the Czech Republic, Sweden, Poland, Bulgaria and Latvia. It was very interesting to see and hear children from the other countries and we hope they enjoyed our version of 'Winter Wonderland'!

Laver Class have been learning about the Blitz.  In P.E., we've created some drama and dance to re-enact things such as hearing the air-raid siren and hiding in a bomb shelter.

This week has been anti-bullying week. We have been learning about what bullying is and what we can do to prevent it. We enjoyed looking at bullying scenarios including those in well-known books such as Harry Potter. Then we made our own anti-bullying book. Have a look at the finished product!

This week we have been carrying out an investigation about the effects of different drinks on our teeth. We tested coke, orange juice and water to see which would damage an egg shell the most. After a few days, we looked at the results. Can you guess which is which?

Over the last couple of weeks, we have been designing and making Roman shields. We first painted them red for Mars, God of War and then thought carefully about which symbols and patterns to put on them. For example, lightning bolts to represent power or a wreath to symbolise victory. When they were ready, we used them to re-enact some classic Roman battle formations!

In science we have begun to look at the digestive system. First we focused on the mouth where food is broken down into smaller pieces and mixed with saliva. We simulated this by mixing bananas, crackers and water in a plastic bag and crushing it with our hands.

We have been learning about the Romans in our topic work and in maths we have looked at Roman numerals up to 100. We had fun creating the numerals with art straws but we had to remember to think carefully with bigger numbers!
