Another super busy week in Team Turquoise! 


In Maths, we have been revising metric measures, how to convert between them and strategies to answer questions about them. In English, we have been finding out about explanation texts and writing about how Wallace's (from (Wallace and Gromit) 'Snoozeatron' works! In Science, we have continued to look at animal adaptations and in Geography, we have explored the ways in which we can live more sustainable lives. In addition to this, we have celebrated British Science week and enjoyed completing an activity to do with our fingerprints. In PSHE, we found out about the impact of different foods on the body and in RE, we have learned about the events of the Easter Story in more detail. We have also continued to learn the song 'La Bamba' and have enjoyed showing off our moves! Next week, we are looking forward to playing it on xylophones.!


Next week in Maths, we are revising quadrilaterals, angles and coordinates and in English we are starting to write an explanation text about surviving in the rainforest. We will also continue with our topics across the curriculum. 


Have a great weekend and see you on Monday!
