This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been busy writing their own adventure story using the book of Oliver and the Seawigs. Year 3 have a great imagination and are coming up with fantastic ideas for their stories. In Maths, they have applied their increasing knowledge of times-tables to solve problems involving division and have revisited the formal method of division to solve more complex problems. They have also been on a long journey to Australia where they learnt all about the smallest continent but the largest island in the world.
Year 4 – have been busy finding fractions of a quantity as well as using fractions to find larger quantities in Maths. In English, they have all enjoyed writing their own travel brochures about Iceland (the setting of the class book). They have really enjoyed researching and learning about Iceland and now everyone would really like to go there!
Year 5 – have been writing a poem based on the story called 'Running on Empty' and have been practising using rhyming couplets. In Maths, they have been continuing to develop their fraction knowledge by understanding equivalent fractions, simplifying and finding fractions of amounts.
Year 6 – have been busy working on stories about a sinking ship, linked to their new book, Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell. So far, everyone is very impressed with the writing that is being produced! They have started their new topic in Humanities - North America - and have been finding out about the features of that continent. In Science, they have been looking at how the eye works.
