This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been writing fantastic setting descriptions based on the book 'The Tin Forest'. In Maths, they have been ordering number using their knowledge of place value. They have learnt to use the 'greater than' and 'less than' symbols to compare numbers. In French, they have been increasing their vocabulary and are able to ask each other their names and how they are feeling. It has been wonderful to see their confidence grow when speaking French to one another. They have started their Science topic learning about parts of the plants and beginning investigations about what seeds need to grow.
Year 4 – have been working at recognising the different types of apostrophes in English. They have practised using them to contract words and to show possession. They have also been practising writing expanded noun phrases about a dog. In Maths, they have continued learning about place value, they have found 1, 10, 100 and a 1000 more or less of a number, solved number lines to 10, 000 problems and worked really hard at dividing two- and three-digit numbers by 10. They have continued to be amazing scientists this week by investigating evaporation - they now know how washing dries on a washing line! In PSHE, they explored the Right of the Child and what that means as well as learning all about plastic pollution in Guided Reading as part of their book this term 'One Plastic Bag'.
Year 5 – have engaged themselves in a diverse range of activities. They have honed their artistic skills by mastering the art of shading, - creating stunning 3D shapes. In Maths, they’ve delved deeper into ordering and comparing numbers and learnt to use number lines. The budding writers among them have embarked on crafting a captivating narrative inspired by the thought-provoking video, ‘The Girl and the Fox’. Additionally, they have embarked on a journey into physical geography learning how meanders are formed. In Science, Year 5 have explored conductivity by designing thermal insulative lunch bags for a hands-on experiment. It has been exciting week for us in Year 5!
Year 6 – have finished writing their fantasy stories about dragons in English and have published them. They have enjoyed reading these stories and have really impressed with some of the descriptive language they have used to describe characters and setting. In Maths, they are finishing the topic on place value, ready to move on to their new topic of the four operations. The children have created some great fact files about The Andes in Humanities and have now been finding out about the Amazon River and how oxbow lakes are formed. They are enjoying reading the class book, Floodlands, in Guided Reading and are gradually building a picture of the main characters involved.
