This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been busy finishing their Biography on Gregory Cool. They have included many features from the Year 3 writing success criteria and are really working on their writing stamina.
In Maths, Year 3 have understood angles in shapes and have been looking at properties of 2d and 3d shapes. In Humanities, Year 3 enjoyed building pre-historic settlements and they took on their roles seriously from farmers, hunter-gatherers and woolly mammoths!
Year 4 – have completed writing their newspaper reports about Noah Barleywater and have published them in their neatest handwriting! In Maths, they have been collecting data and creating graphs from the information. At the start of the week, they collected discrete data - they counted the number of different colours of vehicles that passed by the front of school in a 10-minute period. At the end of the week, they were collecting continuous data. For 10 minutes they marched on the spot counting the number of steps they were taking each minute. They have then plotted this data on a line graph. In Humanities, they have finished their Roman topic by writing a tourist brochure of Roman Britain and learning about the fall of the Roman Empire.
Year 5 – have completed narratives based on the 'Night Walker' in English. They have all created their own plans and used a variety of ideas that have been descriptive and creative, from walks in the forest to adventures in space! Focus has been on using as many of the success criteria as possible. In Maths, they have been looking at triangles, quadrilaterals and their characteristics and have also included calculating missing angles in shapes. In their topic lessons, Year 5 have started a geography topic about Iver this week and have so far located Buckinghamshire on a world map and identified lots of other Counties in England.
Year 6 – have been finding out about aspects of the environment and are now in the process of writing a non-chronological report on the subject in English. In Maths, they have continued with their revision and have been focussing on division; then moving on to fractions, decimals and percentages. They are drawing to a close with the Humanities topic of the Maya Civilisation - the children have enjoyed finding out about this ancient civilisation. They have also continued with their production rehearsals and the children are becoming more familiar with their characters.
