Market Research


Today we used our ICT skills to create a questionnaire for your Jurassic Park Enterprise Project.

We thought about how to ask open and closed questions and where they were best used. We used our ICT skills to create different tables and tick boxes to gather the information in the clearest ways. We had to search for images, copy and paste them into different documents and make sure the documents were easy to read and follow.

We then went around the school to visit children in different classes to complete our market research.

We had great fun while learning lots of new skills.

Classroom in the Woods


Today we spent the day at The Classroom in the Woods imagining what life was like for Shackleton and his men when they became stranded in the ice, in Antarctica. Unfortunately, some of the crew were injured so we had to use a variety of skills to carry them using stretchers. But first we had to build them! We then used our stretchers to build a bridge, allowing us to cross a stream of flowing  water between the pack ice. We also built dogloos  (igloos for dogs), penguin traps and even managed to find our penguin using some simple orienteering and team work.

Heart Dissection


We have started to think about science and how to keep our bodies healthy. We thought about the heart and how it functions. To understand this a little better, we looked at real hearts (pig hearts) and dissected them to see if we could identify the different parts and how they are linked. It really helped us to see the heart in real life and to understand how the arteries, veins and valves are connected to the different chambers within the heart. We are going to use our knowledge to help us write an information text about The Heart.
