Team 8 Blog



Welcome back everyone in Team 8 and a Happy New Year. We have covered so much this week in our team, activities such as: evaluating our gorgeous witches and wizards hats in Art and DT, starting our new Roman Myth story 'Romulus and Remus' in Literacy and Guided Reading and really trying to challenge ourselves in Maths. Here are some of our best moments... Let's see those challenge faces. What are you being challenged on? What is going through your head? Can you visualise the problem? When are you challenged? How does having a challenge help us learn? Can you challenge you buddy? 







wEEK COMMENCING 20th november 2017

This week in Team 8 we have been looking into features of a formal letter. We managed to get hold of the acceptance letter Professor McGonagall sent Harry Potter for Hogwarts! We examined it closely and began to think about the things Harry may have needed to take with him for his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We tried writing our own acceptance letters, as if we were Dumbledore too! 
During science lessons, we investigated the effects of light and qualities of reflective mirrors. We conducted 2 experiments where we had to become secret agent spies and see if we could catch a glimpse of our partners around corners (using only mirrors - this was tricky but FUN!) and also walk the wibbly-wobbly line using only mirrors above our heads to help us. We found out that light travels in straight lines and bounces off smooth surfaces. 
Maths, Wizard hats and Nativity information to follow next week. Have a fab weekend. From Team 8

We look forward to solving problems with addition and subtraction in Maths No Problem and making magical wizards hats in Art and DT! Watch this space!
