We have enjoyed our final week of this half term. In PE, we have put together gymnastics sequences that we have developed across the weeks and have got better at defending each other in netball. In English, we have been writing formally and have had many lessons on grammar this week. Year 5 have been working with fractions and decimals and we will continue to do so after half term. Yr 6 have been learning about different measurements (length, mass & capacity) Any practical experiences in the kitchen or outside would be a fantastic opportunity to consolidate our learning.
All of us have created postcards written in French which showcase our knowledge learnt this topic. Hope everyone had a lovely half term and a well deserved rest!
We have enjoyed our final week of this rather busy half-term finishing off our topic learning on where we find rainforests. In Population class we have started learning about Non-chronological reports. We have used secondary resources to research tropical rainforest animals. We have written great paragraphs about: habitat, appearance and what animals eat.
In year 5 this week, we have been learning about percentages and thousandths in decimals. In year 6 we have been proving that the area of a triangle is half the area of the rectangle in which it fits, calculating the areas of parallelograms, and we have been exploring volume. It has been a very hands on practical week with lots of cutting, sticking and making but it has been exactly what maths should be- FUN! In topic we have been experimenting with warm and cold colours and created some cactus montages in the style of Andy Warhol. We also worked together as a class to write and perform a BBC documentary on ‘How people have adapted to live in a desert’ It took a lot of organising from the editing team but it was a great way to find out more about the Sahara, Mojave, Atacoma and Antarctic deserts to name just a few. Well done Year 6 – a great week!
In Population class we have learnt all about where rain forests are found. We have learnt about the continents and countries and have used atlases to find countries in the Tropics with tropical rain forests. We have written travel brochures for a rain forest retreat. In English, we have written our argument texts and have used conditionals, subordinating conjunctions and commas to improve our writing. In Maths, we are starting to look at division using a written form method.
This week we have been investigating several questions. In topic work, in year 6, we have been thinking about ‘Why doesn’t the Toco Toucan live in deciduous forests of the UK ?’ and in maths we exploring ‘Do shapes with the same area always have the same perimeter?’ As well as investigating these questions, we have produced some amazing toucan pictures, which when displayed will reveal all. Please ask us all about it! All in all, a great week’s learning- well done Year 6!
In Year 5, we have been answering – why do you find certain plants in deserts not forests? We have done a soil experiment and investigated the ability for different soil to hold water. In maths, we have revised fractions and decimals from year 4 to boost our confidence before learning new skills.
In English, Year 4 have been learning all about argument texts. We have learnt about for and against and how having a balanced debate is important. The children have written great sentences using conjunctions and have learnt how to write conditional sentences. We took part in a class debate about the pros and cons of logging. We enjoyed discussing both sides of the argument but came to the conclusion that logging and deforestation is ultimately bad for our planet.
In topic, we have been learning where rainforests are found. We have learnt that tropical rainforests are found in the tropics (this is because they are found between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn). Year 4 took part in an orienteering lesson where they had to find continents and countries around the school field! The children in Population Class enjoyed darting around using their maps to find them.
A big thank you to everyone who has started our rainforest homework projects. We have had some amazing projects in already and look forward to seeing more over the next term!
