Welcome back and thank you so very much for your spectacular Space projects over the half term - they are fabulous! Take a look below.
Week Commencing 2/3/2020
In maths we have been converting fractions to decimals and vice versa. We have been working on exam technique when applying our knowledge to reasoning questions and consolidating our arithmetic knowledge. Thank you to all the children who attend one of my maths clubs this week - the results of your hard work are showing!! Well done!!
In science we have been learning all about the eye and how we see. We have then used our knowledge to create an information booklet. Ask your child if they can explain what the different parts of the eye are in the diagram below and tell you some interesting facts about the eye.
Week Commencing 9/3/2020
In literacy, we have been designing a new ride for Infinity Park – the world’s largest theme park! We have paid particular attention to how a person might express their feelings through their actions. I posed the children some questions and in pairs we acted out how different emotions might look.
Towards the end of the week we began writing a persuasive paragraph to advertise the ride. Things we needed to include: rhetorical questions, parenthesis, modal adverbs, onomatopoeia, personification and varied punctuation.
In maths we have been learning all about angles. Ask you children to define the following: acute, right, obtuse and reflex angles. Listen out for some brilliant mathematical vocabulary - intersecting, vertices, parallel and perpendicular.
We then carried out an angle investigation on Thursday. Question your children about what they found out about angles in a triangle, on a straight line, opposite angles and angles in a quadrilateral.
In topic we have been learning all about The Space Race and we have created a historical timeline.
