This week in English, we have been writing our own story, based on our class book - 'The Wolves in the wall'. We focused on different sentence constructions to create interest - some single clause, some multi-clause.
Next week, we will be looking at a range of instructions and identifying key features which we will then use in our own writing. Our spelling focus for next week will be homophones.
This week in Maths, we started looking at fractions. We revisited equivalence before moving on to converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and then mixed numbers to improper fractions. Next week, we will be continuing our learning on fractions and will be learning how to compare and order fractions by converting mixed numbers into improper fractions before comparing.
This week as part of our PSHE lesson, we carried out a P4C activity based on fairness discussing and answering the question - Is it fair that everyone gets treating the same in class?
This week in History, we we have been identifying the religious beliefs of the early Anglo Saxons in Britain and did some fun role play. In French this week, we have been looking at objects within the classroom and answering some questions in French to see which objects we have.
This week in Science, we have been looking at reversible and irreversible changes. We learn't that some changes are reversible and some are irreversible. We then looked at the process involved in the water cycle and created the water cycle ourselves using ice cubes, warm water and clingfilm. We then observed what happened.
