What we have been learning this week (beginning 26th September).

Class 12 have been very busy this week. In maths we have been working on finding fractions of amounts, using our knowledge to then solve word problems. We then found equivalent fractions with the help of a fraction wall. In our topic lesson we created posters about an aspect of Anglo Saxon life, but were only allowed to use 15 words! We shared our knowledge with our class through a market place activity. We have also looked at non-chronological reports and written our own reports based on our Anglo Saxon research.

In Science this week we made models of the solar system using fruit so we could order the planets according to their relative sizes

What we have been learning this week ( Beginning 19th September).

 

The week started with Freddy Fit - we had a great time exercising and playing games.

 

We have started to look at 3D shapes this week and tackled some hard questions looking at how many right angles are in various shapes. We explored the topic using actual shapes to help us and have produced some fantastic work. In English we have continued our myths and legends theme, focusing on St George and the Dragon. We produced a comic strip of the story with fantastic detail using our earlier learning of relative clauses and expanded noun phrases not to mention some fantastic vocabulary.

 

 

In our science lessons we explored our understanding or the earth, sun and moon as spherical bodies and why we know this. We played a game looking at thoughts and evidence at different times in history and matching these to the flat or spherical earth theory.

 

Our PSHE theme is caring and we discussed what this meant to us. We looked at a video of a dementia sufferer and working in pairs created a script We then performed our role play to our friends and took videos of our plays.

What we have been learning this week ( Beginning 12th September).

This week we have worked very hard, focusing on mental addition and subtraction as well as looking at different myths and legends. We designed fantastic mythical beasts and wrote a setting description for our myth.
In art we looked at designing Anglo-Saxon clothing. In science we have been researching the Earth and the Solar system.

 

The level of detail in our homework this week was fantastic - what excellent research on the Anglo Saxons. We are proud to display our work in our classroom for our friends to see.

 

                  

 Celebrating Roald Dahl day.

We celebrated Roald Dahl Day.to mark his 100th birthday. We looked at The BFG and how Sophie initially reacted in horror to the giant.  She judged him by his appearance, even though he was friendly. We first played a game and also designed a poster where we matched personality cards and appearance cards. We discussed how we make assumptions based on how people look and thought about whether it is better to be kind or look beautiful. We then created our own characters and gave them opposite personalities to their looks.
