Weekly Bulletin - 16th September 2022
This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been using commas for lists and developing their sentence structure through the inclusion of co-ordinating conjunctions. In Maths, they have been investigating number lines and using their understanding of place value of complete number lines up to 1000. Year 3 are finished with their topic of place value and will be moving onto addition next week. In PSHE, Year 3 have discussed how to face difficult and new challenges as well as any emotions that come along with those challenges. In Humanities, they have continued to develop their map skills. They have searched for rivers and mountains, deepening their knowledge of the UK’s landscape, they have used keys and legends to aid their search and were able to locate some of the UK’s most famous locations.
Year 4 – have been learning about plastic pollution this week and have started writing non-chronological reports about plastic waste and how it is damaging our world. They watched videos and read around the subject, making brilliant notes to help them with their writing!
In Science, they are investigating which fizzy drinks have the most carbon dioxide in them and whether gases have any weight at all. In Geography, they have been learning about the oceans and seas surrounding Africa and how our world once began as one large landmass! They are full of facts and knowledge! In Maths, they have been looking closely at place value and partitioning numbers. This is building on last week’s lessons and preparing them for addition and subtraction in the next few weeks…
Year 5 – have been developing their mathematical thinking this week by writing and partitioning numbers up to one million. They have done a fantastic job of approaching challenges with far larger numbers than they are used to. In English, the children have started retelling a tale about a girl who meets a fox in the woods. They've been using some excellent expanded noun phrases to add a lot of descriptive detail to their work. This week, as they have begun their topic of Materials in Science, they looked at the many materials used in the classrooms and their properties. Everyone was impressed by the children's ability to confidently define insulators and conductors and put that understanding to the test in their own scientific experiment!
Year 6 – have worked incredibly hard to finish their stories about The Dragon Slayer. They have worked just as hard to edit their work against their new success criteria. In Maths, they have continued their learning about value. They have also begun to explore more about the continent of South America, learning about mountain ranges and the Amazon river.
