We have also been learning about our class faith, Islam, throughout the week. This culminated in the art activity about the Five Pillars of Islam that many of you joined us for on Friday. Many thanks to those who were able to attend.
This week in science we explored why objects are made from particular materials and why these materials are suited to their job.
In history we thought about how people might have travelled in the past and how and why this might have changed over time. We planned questionnaires to ask members of our families.
We explored animating using the I Can Animate app on the I-pads in preparation for the final outcome of this term's learning vehicle, our own Superhero animations!
