Learning and Achieving Together


 Team Topaz 2022/23

 Your Classteacher is Mrs Boulder.

Your teaching assistant is Mrs Sides.

We have had a very busy week in Team Topaz!

In Maths, we have been learning about quadrilaterals, triangles and angle rules. In English, we have written a persuasive letter to a mother in World War 2 asking her to evacuate her child to the countryside. Our spelling pattern has been adding the suffixes: -ant, -ent, -ance, -ence, -ancy and    -ency. In Science, we investigated the effect of adding wires to a circuit and found out how many wires it would take to make the bulb go out - it took a lot of wires! In Geography, we found out what economy, import, export and GDP mean and what the richest countries in the world are and in RE, we found out what Buddhists believe about karma.



Next week in Maths, we will be looking at 3D shapes, nets of shapes and how to use a protractor to accurately measure angles and draw shapes to a specified size. In English, we will be writing a letter from an evacuee to home, sharing what their new life is like in the countryside and we will be revising all of the spelling patterns we have looked at this half term.


Have a great weekend all and we'll see you on Monday!
