This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been very busy learning about statistics in Maths. They have created tally charts, pictograms and bar charts and have interpreted the data. In English, they have been writing biographies about Queen Victoria and discovering some interesting facts about her life. During their History lessons, they have been researching the life of Victorian children. First, they looked at those who had to go to work from a very young age and then we spent time learning about Victorian schools. They found out how very strict they were! They found the old entrance to the school for 'Boys and Infants'. In PE, they have been creating magical dance moves to the Harry Potter theme tune.
Year 4 – have been writing a non-chronological report all about cats. They have been researching domestic cats, wild cats and fictional cats. In Maths, they have been finding fractions of an amount. In DT, they have made their pneumatic moving monsters and they all look amazing! In Science, Year 4 got to make a replica digestive system.
Year 5 – have written setting descriptions in English. They have planned, written, edited and published their work trying to ensure they have used expanded noun phrases, commas for lists, relative clauses, commas for clarity. In Maths, they have continued to revisit adding and subtracting fractions ensuring everyone remembers to ensure that the denominator is the same. They have started their science topic about space this week and have learnt the names of the planets and facts about them.
Year 6 – have been busy finishing their narratives to write their own endings to the book Year 6 have been reading - Rooftoppers. It will be interesting to see how many of them predict an ending close to the real one! In Maths, they have been focusing on geometry and learning about shape. As well as taking part in the Mission Zero project for the European Space Agency, in Computing, the children have been starting to create their own blogs. They have continued looking at the history of Crime and Punishment in Humanities and have this week focused on crime and punishment during the Anglo Saxon, Viking, Medieval and Tudor periods.
