Sikhism, Discussions, Crystal Flowers and the Water Cycle

Week 2 and 3 of term 5 have flown by…

We have started looking at Sikhism and our big question is “How do Sikhs show commitment to God?” We know Sikhs believe in one god and the importance of sharing and treating everyone as equals. They wear the ‘five K’s’. This week we have thought about the meaning of commitment, we had a debate on vegetarianism and had to argue our case with commitment. This was great fun but also very interesting.

 

This debate also linked with our English genre of discussion text. We completed our cold tasks last week and this week we completed our text maps of our exemplar text, held another debate on mobile phones in school and looked at the use of sequencing conjunctions and logical conjunctions and how  to use them in discursive texts.In our Computing lessons we have been using Scratch to draw Crystal Flowers, using repeat algorithms and nested repeat instructions. We can draw beautiful geometric patterns.

 

In science and art we have been looking at the water cycle and made a collage of the natural water cycle and then we wrote our own labels explaining the process.

It is a KS2 meeting tomorrow and we will be showing our water cycle then. We have also been preparing for a visit from James Thomas from BBC Wiltshire teatime show, so listen out for news from Woodborough School.

We sang our Spanish counting song and then Zara and Magnus told James all about it. Listen in next week to hear what they said.

Please note that I have not set English homework today (Friday) but it will be sent home Monday.

  1. You’ve been ever so busy! Your debates sound really interesting and we’ve enjoyed hearing all about them at home.

  2. Great work Lime Class! Very grown up having debates, i bet it was fun. Look forward to hearing all about the water cycle and listening to BBC Wiltshire radio later!
