As part of their Extreme Earth Geography topic Beech Class have been learning about Volcanoes. For their first lesson they carried out a SOLE investigation (Self Organised Learning Environment) where they tried to answer the question 'Why do Volcanoes erupt?'.
They all found out lots of information answering the question very well and have proudly displayed their posters and diagrams in the classroom.
In the following lessons they consolidated their learning by finding out more about the layers of the Earth and tectonic plates. They also made their own volcanoes using clay and then created a chemical reaction to represent the lava erupting. Look at the photos and video to see them in action.

Electricity and Robots


Beech Class have been learning all about electricity in Science and Robots in topic this half term.


Watch the video below to see the useful robots they have designed. They have all worked hard to design, make, evaluate and improve their robots. They have then used their knowledge of circuits to incorporate an electronic part to their robot, including buzzers, bulbs, motors and switches.


Well done Beech Class your hard work has really paid off they look like extremely helpful robots.


Next they will be using a Green Screen App to edit the background of the photos of their robots and label them using the Seesaw App.
