This Week In School…
Year 3 – have started to read a new book, Oliver and the Seawigs. They have looked at the features of adventure stories and have begun writing their own. In Maths, the children have been finding missing numbers in calculations using their understanding of the inverse operation for both multiplication and division. Year 4 – have begun reading One Plastic Bag and learning about Isatou Ceesay, an environmental activist. They are beginning to collect information to write a leaflet on the importance of recycling plastic. In Maths, the children have been learning about factor pairs and using this knowledge to help them multiply bigger numbers. Year 5 – have been writing a poem from our character's perspective; how they feel to be bullied. They've discussed how their character is feeling and how we would be kind to others. In Maths, they had a look at fractions- which is always a challenging topic but they have persevered and are now able to order fractions. In Humanities, they are travelling back in time to Ancient Greece.
Year 6 – have been starting to read their new book for this half term, 'Pax' by Sara Pennypacker. To support their reading, the children have been researching red foxes and have been working on free verse poetry linked to the characters. In Maths, they have been learning how to find percentages of amounts. They have also started their new Humanities and Science topics for this half term: Rivers and Electricity.
