This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been busy writing a diary entry in the character of the Iron Man. The children have enjoyed imagining themselves as the Iron Man. In Maths, they have begun learning about perimeter of shapes and in DT, the children made a finger puppet in preparation of their glove puppet which they will be making soon!
Year 4 – have been investigating sound even further. They have been learning all about the different parts of the ear and how they all have their roles in allowing us to hear different sounds. They have also created their own experiment exploring which material is best at absorbing soundwaves. In English, they have finished their persuasive letters to the prime minister asking him to ban the use of circus animals and have produced some really convincing pieces of work. In Maths, they have deepened their knowledge of multiplication by finding factor pairs. Additionally, they have used their times table facts to help them solve problems involving scaling.
Year 5 – have worked hard online for the last few days of isolation. In English, they have watched a video clip about diving giraffes and have completed some writing trying to add in some relative clauses from the work learnt in English last week. They have completed some word problems related to all four operations covered so far in year 5 (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). They have also learnt the formal written method for division, with and without remainders. When Y5 returned to school, they completed work about Kindness as part of a whole school project about how we can make the world a better place if we are kind to all living things.
Year 6 – have returned to school this week after their period of home-school learning during self-isolation. It is lovely to see the children back in school; and we are really proud of the way they quickly adapted to learning through Microsoft Teams. We must say a big thank you to parents for your support in also adapting to this way of learning. In English this week the children are starting to write a narrative with a particular focus on description of characters and setting. They are moving on to learning about percentages in Maths and in Humanities they are finishing their topic on Brazil by researching the cultures of the country and producing a non-chronological report on the subject.
