SCHOOL LEARNING – Global Goals/ Design & Technology

 

Mrs Rowntree D&T Subject Leader

YEAR 3

 

 

This week Year 3 have explored aspects of our History, Geography, English and Commuting curriculums together. The children have begun to learn about where the river Nile is and its significance for past civilisations. They have considered where to find reliable information online and how to tell if a website should be trusted. They have then used good websites to begin researching information for their non chronological reports on the river Nile, whilst also learning about the features of a non chronological report in English.  We can't wait to share our finished reports with you!

 

YEAR 4 RIGHTS RESPECTING/GLOBAL GOALS/SCIENCE

Science, Year 4 have been learning about how animal environments have been damaged by pollution, destruction of habitats and climate change. We applied this learning when we wrote about habitats in our non-chronological reports. Then as part of 4I's assembly on Wednesday 18th November, the whole of Phase 3 learned more about greenhouse gases and how they damage the environment. â€‹Peter gave a very informative presentation on the dangers posed by methane, nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide and fluoridated gases.  He linked it to Anti Bullying Week and asked if humans are guilty of bullying the planet. Luckily for us, he shared  some good news and ended on a hopeful note. 

 

 

 

YEAR 5 – Design and Technology/Art and Design

This week, year 5 thoroughly enjoyed making wind turbines as part of our Climate Change Project. Wind turbines provide a renewable source of energy. When designing our own wind turbines (out of paper straws, cardboard and cotton reels), we learnt that the tower had to be high so that it would catch as much wind as possible. We understood that the turbine had to have two turning points: one for the blades and one for the tower to turn to point towards the wind. Here are their creations!

 

On reflection, pupils evaluated that they needed sturdy bases to allow the tower to stand straight and tall. As well as this, they needed to ensure they had two turning points for the wind turbine to be successful and efficient.

YEAR 6 - Mathematics

 

 

 

Following our work on 2D shapes, Year 6 went to Wandsworth Common to take measurements of a football pitch in order work out its area and perimeter.  The children estimated first and then compared their estimates to their calculations.
