This Week In School…
Year 3 – have started their new history topic, The Victorians. They have worked in groups to create timelines of key events in the Victorian era. In Maths, they have been learning to place fractions on a number line while in English, they have been beginning to write their own stories about the Heavenly Elephant!
Year 4 – have started reading their new Power of Reading book, Noah Barleywater Runs Away. In English, they sent Noah to trial for the crime he committed in the book (they found him GUILTY!). In Maths, they have been using their multiplication knowledge to solve scaling problems and find connections between times tables. In History, they travelled back to Ancient Egypt to begin their Egyptian project.
Year 5 – have started to read their new book - 'Cosmic'. Children are very excited about the topic 'Space' and are currently researching the different planets and planning a leaflet about visiting 'EPCOT' in America. In Maths, children have been consolidating their understanding of mixed and improper fractions.
Year 6 – have spent some time going over the tests they completed the week before half term, in order to address any misconceptions. In English, the children have started work on a newspaper report linked to our book, Rooftoppers, which they are continuing to read. They have started a new topic in Humanities - The History of Crime and Punishment - and have enjoyed finding out about crime and punishment during the Roman period.
