Otters Class Blog – 15.6.18

This week we have been learning about food and how it gets from farm to fork.  We have learnt what foods come from animals, plants or both.  For example beef comes from cows, strawberries from plants and chocolate from both. (Mehdi, Esme and Fin.)

We had fun making butter using cream. We shook it up and down in a jar until it became butter.  It was very hard work!

After that we spread the butter

on some bread and tasted it.

It was very delicious. (Scarlett and Joe.)

In English we learnt the story The Disgusting Sandwich.  We wrote our own stories and instructions on how to make a disgusting sandwich. (Amber and Lucie). We also edited to help improve our work. (Harry.)

In music we continued to record and practise our music for minibeasts.  We have been working very hard on this.

For maths this week we have done some estimating to help us know whether we have got the right answer to a sum.  We have also been looking at 3D shapes and naming them and discussing their properties.  We have looked at cylinders, cubes, cuboids,  spheres, square based pyramid and triangular prisms.
