This Week In School…
Year 3 – have been learning about fractions of amounts and fractions on a number line in Maths. In English, they have begun to write their own versions of 'The King who banned the dark', focusing on character and setting descriptions. They have concluded their Humanities topic by comparing The Stone Age, The Bronze Age and The Iron Age. They compared food, homes, clothing and tools used during these different periods. They have begun their new Science topic about plants and have planned an investigation about plant growth. All of Year 3 were amazing on sports day, everyone tried their best in all of their activities and races. It was a fantastic day, Miss Booth and Mrs Macdonald are very proud of how well everyone supported each other throughout the day.
Year 4 – have had the worst luck, they entered their classrooms to find a crime had been committed - three apples were stolen from a magical apple tree! The criminal, eight-year-old Noah Barleywater (definitely not Alexander) has been arrested and will be brought up in front of the judge (Zuzanna) next week. In English, they have put on their barrister wigs and have been writing their opening and closing statements as well as questions for the witnesses that will stand up in court. In Maths, they have been working very hard! Each member of Year 4 sat their multiplication test (MTC). This was a very tricky timed test, but they handled the pressure brilliantly and all tried their best. In Science, they have been investigating food webs.
Year 5 – have been very busy this week editing and publishing their newspaper articles about the Platinum Jubilee. Everyone worked hard to include commas for parenthesis, relative clauses and apostrophes for possession. The finished pieces of work are lovely and really show the improvement many of the children have made. They have converted millimetres and millilitres, and learnt how to convert metric units using part whole models and bar models in their maths lessons this week. They have also used some lessons to look back at some of the tricky work Year 5 have already completed. In their Topic lessons this week, they have continued to look at Asia. They have learnt about the landscapes, regions and culture. Everyone who attended Sports day thoroughly enjoyed it and everyone was very happy with the effort made during the races and the encouragement given by the supporters.
Year 6 – have continued to work hard on rehearsals for their production, Bugsy. This week the children have been learning the songs in the production and have started to learn some dances, use props and work with scenery. We have also been sorting out costumes. All of the children who took part in sports day did really well and had a great day. Back in the classroom, in science the children have continued to learn how nutrients are transported around the body; and have finished producing their great posters to illustrate this. In maths they have continued to work on their bakery project and have this week used maths skills linked to the four operations and converting units of measure.
