This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been multiplying 1-digit numbers by a 2- and 3-digit number. They have been practising the formal method for multiplication and solving problems involving multiplication in Maths. In English, they have enjoyed using their research to begin writing their information text on the 5 Oceans of the world.
Year 4 – have been continuing to expand their knowledge of decimals. They have been using a place value grid to help them divide by 10 and 100 and have been applying these skills to word problems. In English, they have finished off their explanation text about cats. They were very excited about the fact that cats get to sleep for 12 hours a day! In the afternoon, Year 4 have been jumping into their time machine and travelling to Ancient Egypt. This time around, they learnt about the pyramids of Giza and how to make a mummy. They have also started their Art topic and have created a biography about the artist, David Hockney.
Year 5 – have had another busy week creating rhyming couplet poems in English and finding fractions of amounts in Maths. They have continued reading their class book 'Running On Empty' and story mapped the main events. They have also completed assessments as well as continuing with their Indian art project. They have produced a design to block print using string on card and printing onto strips of paper. This produced a repeated pattern design.
Year 6 – have been enjoying reading more of their book, 'Rooftoppers' and only have a few more chapters to go now. In English, the children have been re-telling a story and creating their own ending; they have been working hard on using techniques to engage the reader. In Maths, they have been revising fractions and have also learnt about Roman numerals. The children have begun their new Humanities topic which is the history of crime and punishment in Britain. They have particularly enjoyed creating their own curse tablet, after learning about Roman forms of crime and punishment.
