This Week In School…
Year 3 – have had a very busy first week back! In English, the children are busy writing a newspaper report on a mysterious visitor who took metal from the school! The children were very excited to investigate and look for clues as to who this mystery metal “thief” could be. In Maths, they have worked hard to solve division problems using the short formal method while in Science, they have commenced a new topic and are looking at forces. The children thoroughly enjoyed shooting marshmallows whilst investigating push/pull forces.
Year 4 – are really excited about their new book, ‘Leon and the place between’. The circus setting has produced some amazing work in English lessons. In Maths, they have been focusing on converting standard units of measurements including mm, cm, m and km. The new topic in Humanities brings year 4 back to the continent of Africa as they explore its different regions. They have explored the countries of Nigeria and Morocco and have found out some interesting facts. Year 5 – have started a new book this half term; Odysseus, which links to the Y5 Ancient Greeks topic. They have identified the features of a character description and planned their descriptions, ready to write next week. In SPaG, they have learnt how to use parenthetic commas to add detail in sentences that they will be using in their English work. In Maths, they have learnt about prime numbers, squared numbers and cubic numbers as well as factors and multiples. They have also researched, designed and begun to make Greek pots and will continue with this next week.
Year 6 – have been working hard; most of them took part in the 11+ tests as well as continuing with their normal studies. In English, they are writing their first narrative of the year which is linked to the book, Floodland, that they read together last half term. They have started reading a new book - though they don't know what this is called yet - and already the children have a number of questions they want to know the answers to so are keen to read on! Rosen class have been taking part in Computing this week and have been using coding to design and create their own computer game - it will be the turn of Rowling class next week. Meanwhile, Rowling class have started this half term’s new Humanities topic - Brazil.
