This Week In School…
Year 3 – have begun to write descriptive poems about The Tin Forest. They have learnt about features of poetry such as similes, metaphors and alliteration. In Maths, they have begun to learn the column method for subtraction. Year 3 have been practising exchanging hundreds, tens and ones.
Year 4 - have been busy designing a robot made from recycled materials. They have then begun to write instructions on how to make their robots. In Maths, they tackled negative numbers and worked hard to remember the different Roman numerals and use them to crack a secret code. They have looked at the landscapes of Africa and the affect that deforestation has on the country. To end the week, they have made their own cereal box packaging.
Year 5 – have learnt how to use speech marks correctly so that they'll be able to use them in their narrative writing about 'The Journey'. In Maths, they have been learning how to use Roman numerals and have completed some word problems relating to place value. Year 5 have also continued to work on sewing their designs onto book-marks as part of their DT topic. They have also carried out an investigation to test which material would be the best to use as an inside liner for a lunch box in Science.
Year 6 – have been writing a persuasive letter in character which is linked to our book, Floodland. We are really enjoying reading the book and finding out more about the characters involved. The children have been re-visiting addition and subtraction in Maths and in Art this week, they have studied the artists Frida Kahlo and Joaquin Torres Garcia. During Art, they produced some great monkeys out of clay and picture puzzles using symbols.
