Summer Term


We made predictions and monitored cress to see how quickly it would grow.  Then we got to taste it! 



Using maps and an atlas we located countries and their capital cities and plotted these onto a map.



We made a prediction about what we thought a Water Cycle was.

We drew posters to show what we know about rivers and  Water Cycles.



We used a dictionary to clarify new vocabulary.


We had a visit from the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance Service who explained to us the importance of safety near water.


As a class we carried out an investigation to see if plants need their roots and leaves.  We also gave some water and we kept each of our plants either in the dark, outside, in the shade or on the window sill. 


We used an atlas to look at the temperatures in different countries and then created a bar graph using our computing skills to present our data.

We researched animals that live in rivers and planned a non-chronological report using interesting facts. Here is my report on Otters.




Why do people settle near rivers?
