Washburn Class

Thursday 30th November

This half term we have furthered our existing knowledge of electrical circuits. We have investigated how to make a bulb brighter by adding more power and have also made circuits in series and parallel. We then planned and carried out our own investigations.

We have been enjoying working with different partners in our maths lessons lately in Washburn class. The children have enjoyed rising to the challenge and working together to solve some tricky fraction puzzles.

This week we have linked our writing with our topic 'Crime and Punishment'. As we are writing balanced arguments, to generate 'for and 'against' points, we held our own court trial. We discussed key roles such as 'prosecution', 'defence' and 'witness', then held a formal trial.

The children really enjoyed this role play opportunity and impressed me with their ability to be hot-seated on the 'stand' and to listen carefully. This generated lots of ideas for our writing - I'm looking forward to the outcome!

Washburn Class have been learning about light this term. This week they investigated refraction and the spectrum. They shone light through prisms and observed how this split the light into the different colours of the spectrum. This is exactly how Isaac Newton discovered that 'white light' is made up of many colours!

This year Washburn Class are learning to play the cornet. They have had a very successful couple of lessons and even played their first tune today! Mrs Eddison is very impressed with their playing skills so far.
