This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been looking at the relationship between multiplication and division. They have found missing numbers using the inverse operation and bar models. In English, they have been concentrating on reading comprehension using the Tin Forest story. We are extremely impressed at how well Year 3 have done this half term, we hope they all have a fantastic half term and manage to get lots of rest ready for the next half term!
Year 4 – have worked hard to finish writing and publish their narrative about our adventurous plastic bag. They have then been busy designing a front cover and illustrations to go with their finished work. Miss Booth and Miss Rowe are very impressed with everyone’s creativity! In science, they have been learning about tooth decay. They have written and carried out an experiment where we have been testing the impact of different drinks on our teeth. They made predictions about what they thought each drink would do to the egg (the egg represents a tooth) and have compared them with the actual results. We couldn’t believe what had happened to some of the eggs!
Year 5 – have had another busy week! In English, they have completed writing, editing and publishing a newspaper report about a refugee family's journey to safety. In Maths, they have continued to answer questions related to graphs and timetables. They have learnt a lot about the Ancient Greeks this week including Greek warfare; The battle of Marathon and The Trojan war.
Year 6 – have been following up last week's successful diary entry by writing another diary entry, but this time from a different character's point of view. They finished reading their class book - Floodland - which the children really enjoyed; they wrote their own ideas of a sequel in Guided reading. In Maths, the children have started looking at fractions. Y6 topic lessons this week have focussed on Music where the children have been learning about the history of music, looking at composers, the features of different music and various musical styles throughout history.
