This term children have been learning about electricity using the NHK schools site. This is the Japanese equivalent of BBC Bitesize.
They looked at static electricity via a selection of experiments that allowed them to practise vocabulary.
They moved on to looking at circuit construction the following week.
Next week they will be making charcoal batteries.
The final week they will be checking vocabulary by creating either a song or worksheet for other students to use.
The first week each class will be given a brief talk on 4 potential options for next year: History; Geography; DT; RE & Culture. They will be able to look further into each area before discussing which subject each class is most interested in learning about. The most popular across the school will be chosen for next year.
In week two, children will be given a whirlwind tour of Japan via Shinkansen (the bullet train) before being able to choose from 4 options in KS2 & 3 in KS1. They will have a choice of script, traditional hairstyles, football kits, and origami.
