This week in English, we have been continuing with the story - 'The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs' by Jon Scieszka with a focus on direct speech and understanding how we organise information into paragraphs. We have also reviewed our understanding of present and past tenses. Next week, we will be continuing with the story - 'The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs' by Jon Scieszka and writing our very own newspaper reports based on two little pigs going missing. We will be focusing on using a range of conjunctions in our writing to effectively link our ideas and sentences and accurately using inverted commas around direct speech. We will have the opportunity to edit and improve our writing before we write it up in our very best handwriting.
This week in Maths, we have been investigating a range of 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. We have also been learning how to classify regular and irregular polygons and we particularly enjoyed applying what we had learnt when building our own 3D shapes using a range of equipment including spaghetti, marshmallows, Playdoh and jelly sweets! Next week, we will be spending time revisiting our previous learning from the Autumn term, and taking the opportunity to show our teachers how much we have remembered!
This week in History, we have been researching how Julius Caesar came into power. This week in PSHE, we have started to make our garden products which we deigned last week for the school garden. Our focus was to work together as a team. We can't wait to finish them next week and put them into the garden for everyone in the school to enjoy; hopefully those in the garden will them too!
This week in Design and Technology we have been finishing making our wraps with Ms Pyke and writing up our recipes. In Science, we have been learning about the functions of the different bones in our body, including protection, support and movement. We have also really enjoyed learning how to play the cornets in our music lesson this week and playing them together in groups
We hope you have a lovely weekend!
Congratulations to this week's stars!
