This week, Notting Hill Gate spent the day investigating soil and finding out about the properties of soil, as well as the permeability and absorption of soils. The children enjoyed creating Lego models to represent the different properties of soil and used their scientific knowledge to predict which soil would be the most permeable.
Creating a storm atmosphere
On Thursday, Notting Hill Gate used body percussion and their art skills to create the atmosphere of a storm. The children really enjoyed performing to Mr. Benstock and all felt very proud when he was able to identify how they had used their bodies to create the sound of rain and thunder.
Connected Curriculum - Outdoor Learning
Notting Hill Gate have been looking at belonging to a community as part of PSHE and we have been focusing our learning around our class book 'The Legend of Kevin'. In this lesson, we discussed the facilities in the community of Bumbleford and built up an idea of what we think the town looks like.
The children really enjoyed going outside and creating a simple map using natural resources to show their own interpretation of what they believe Bumbleford looks like.
This week, Notting Hill Gate enjoyed helping their school community by picking litter from the school field. The children all had a great time and asked if it was something we could do regularly!
