Let's Learn Together

Year 3

Next week in Y3 we will be continuing to publish our amazing natural disasters learning. This will involve us becoming super editors, artists and publishers.

In SPaG boot camp we will be learning different ways of using a dictionary and well as the different rules for using speech. We love SPaG boot camp in Y3.

In maths we will be continuing to explore collecting and presenting data. We are enjoying learning how to draw different graphs and present data in different ways. We will also be continuing to work on our times table facts linking these to division learning too.

Some of the Y3 children are looking forward to our production of the Lion King and the rest of the children are looking forward to watching their peers. Good luck to the children starring in it.

We enjoyed our parents visiting school for SPaG Bootcamp this week.

Year 4

What an adventure next week! On Monday, we’ll be welcoming ‘Zulu Nation’ for dancing and drumming workshops.

On Tuesday we’ll be viewing the spectacular performance of the ‘Lion King’ from our outstanding performing arts club.

On Wednesday, 4MW will be swimming in the morning and we’ll have out PE sessions in the afternoon.

On Thursday, we’ll be conducting and concluding evaporation experiments and reporting our findings.

And on Friday, we’ll be ready to celebrate all of our achievements!

As well as all this, there’s mountain writing and art; more with fractions and decimals; spelling, punctuation and grammar and even time for a story or two!

Don’t forget that it’s the start of our Pedal Power week too – ride a bike or scooter to school (with an adult) and see if you can help our school win some fabulous prizes.

Next week in Y5, we will be exploring Alchemy Island even further and beginning to research a range of precious gemstones and metals. This will link to our science topic which will focus on the properties of different materials.

In maths, we will continue to develop our understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages and will soon move onto further exploration of geometry and statistics.

We will be completing our setting descriptions which were inspired by our previous work on portals and based around the first area on our map of Alchemy Island – the Ancient Citadel. This will lead into our exploration of the exciting gemstone and gold mines!

We have really enjoyed our Tea Party celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday. We also can’t wait for our workshops with the Zulu Nation dance team next week!

Keep up the good work, Y5!

Year 6

Next week we will be:
In Maths we will be focusing on data such as mean and averages, revising key FDP facts – whilst looking at ordering and comparing fractions and decimals and finally we will be moving on to look at ratio.  In SPaG (Spelling Punctuation and Grammar) we will be focusing on direct and indirect speech, the passive and active voice, tenses and the subjunctive form.  Furthermore, In Reading, we will be further developing our retrieval skills and learning even more about interpreting information.

Don’t forget:
-To bring your PE kits to school every Monday.
-Remember to read at home and earn those DOJO points.

Let's Learn Together

Year 3

Next week in Y3 we will be exploring the maths unit ‘Statistics’ This exciting unit will enable us to learn about gathering data during investigations. We will be learning how to interpret data so we can ask and answer questions about it. Also, we will focus on maths skills such as drawing charts and graphs.

In writing lessons we will be learning how to use expanded noun phrases to extend our writing. We are working on writing extended pieces using all our previous knowledge and SPaG skills.

During SPaG Bootcamp we will be learning how to use ‘a’ and ‘and’ correctly in a sentence. We will also be reviewing word classes so we can become more confident.

In creative lessons we are working hard to learn how to play the glockenspiel as well as use our voices to accompany this.

Year 4

In Y4 next week, there will be much more learning about marvellous, misty mountains. How are they formed? Why do we have mountain ranges? Are all mountains volcanoes?

In mathematics, were focusing on fractions. While remembering to divide by the denominator, we’ll be finding fractions of amounts and solving problems to do with division and fraction quantities.

We’re still developing a deeper understanding of the five pillars of Islam; studying the serenity of the water cycle; swimming (if you’re in 4MW) and being ready for outdoor PE on Wednesday.

Remember you can be planning for the ‘Big Pedal’ and work out your route to school. Remember to read every day and practice those times tables – we need to beat the Y3 classes to the times table challenge!

Year 5

Next week in Y5, we will be continuing with our exciting topic learning which will move us further on in our exploration of the mysterious Alchemy Island. As you may have seen on our Twitter page, we have been busy hunting for portals to inspire the settings for our narrative writing. This will continue into next week and develop into a written descriptive setting for our fantasy stories. As part of this, we will also be studying a range of landscapes and stories based around other worlds and fantasy locations.

In maths, we will be moving on to fractions, decimals and percentages. This unit will involve recognising and converting between mixed numbers and improper fractions, adding and subtracting fractions and then working towards multiplying proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers.

In science, we will be continuing our investigations into the properties of different materials and exploring reversible and irreversible changes in greater depth.

We are also really excited about our celebrations to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday and can’t wait to take part in our learning to celebrate her role in our country as well as around the world. We’re also looking forward to wearing our best party clothes to mark the occasion with cake and some singing! Look out for us on Twitter so that you can all share in the celebrations and feel a part of the day through our photographs!

We’ve had another great week, Y5. Keep up the good work!

Year 6

In Maths we will be focusing on measures including, converting measures and solving measurement word problems.
