Weekly Bulletin - 19th November 2021
This Week In School…
Year 3 – have busy starting to write a diary entry in the character of the Iron Man. The children have enjoyed imagining themselves as the Iron Man and have made some ambitious word choices. In Maths, they have worked hard to solve division problems and been learning about fact families. In Science, they have commenced a new topic and are looking at forces. The children thoroughly enjoyed shooting marshmallows whilst investigating push/ pull forces!
Year 4 – have been writing to the president of America, trying to persuade him to ban animals from being used in circuses. In Maths they have been solving perimeter problems and even took part in some orienteering around the playground solving perimeter questions. They have been working scientifically during science by investigating sound. They have tested different materials to find out which material absorbs the most noise and would therefore be the best material to soundproof a room. In DT, they had the tricky challenge of making nets this week. Some were really tricky and had 20 sides!
Year 5 – have really worked hard to write a narrative retelling the Cyclops chapter of their class book Odysseus. They have written two paragraphs and really thought about how they could add more detail using the language features to improve their writing. They will continue with the narrative next week. They have learnt to divide, two, three and four digit numbers by a one- digit number in Maths this week. Year 5 have taken time to understand, using visual representations what they are doing when exchanging from one column to the next. In Topic, they have learnt about the Trojan War and used Now Press Play to listen to a story about the Ancient Greeks.
Year 6 – have been finishing and publishing their narratives with a particular emphasis on describing settings and characters in English. The children have continued learning about fractions in Maths and have been looking at equivalent fractions; simplifying fractions; and converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and mixed numbers to improper fractions. In Science, they set up an investigation to see what conditions mould needs to grow in and will be observing the growth of mould on bread over the next few weeks. The children created their own version of a 'Guess the Alien' game in computing, using some of the skills they have been learning in the Year 6 coding topic.
