This Week In School…
Year 3 – have continued to write up their information texts in English. They have researched oceans, marine life and marine plants. The children are excited to finish writing up their information and creating their own books using the information. In Maths, they have consolidated their understanding of dividing 2-digit numbers by a 1-digit number.
Year 4 – have continued to learn about decimal numbers. They have found the decimal equivalents of halves and quarters, compared and ordered different decimal numbers and have started rounding them to the nearest whole number. In English, they have begun planning and writing a 'What am I riddle' based on their class text 'Varjak Paw'. In Humanities they have finished off their learning about the Ancient Egyptians. They have looked at some of the different Gods and Goddesses, Hieroglyphics and finished with the River Nile. In Art, they have tackled the tricky task of perspective drawing and planning their final images.
Year 5 – have learnt so much about bike safety and how to be safe on the roads with lots of the Year 5s taking part in Bikeability training. All involved were very enthusiastic and relished the whole process. They have continued with their poetry unit based on the class book and have had the experience of writing their own poems. Everyone realises now just how difficult poetry writing is. They completed their fractions unit in Maths and have now begun to look at the relationship between fractions and decimals. Year 5 will be continuing with this next week. They have also created Rangoli patterns as part of their Art unit, creating them using coloured sand. They all look great!
Year 6 – have been working really hard as it was Test week - well done to all of them for their efforts. They have had a challenging week in Maths too, as they have been learning about algebra, the nth term and linear sequencing. In English, the children have been planning and drafting their own ending to their book, Rooftoppers - they will read the real ending next week. In Humanities, they have continued to look at the history of crime and punishment and have been focusing on the Medieval, Tudor, Early Modern and Victorian periods.
