We are looking to start our forces science learning.

SPAG will be continuing our learning on high level punctuation.

Year 6

Next week, in maths, we will be continuing our learning about geometry but moving our understanding of shapes on to include: coordinates, translation, reflection and rotation. We will be ensuring our reasoning responses answer, prove but also explain our understanding fully. 

During SFA, we will be practising reading comprehension questions based on the text: The 5 children and it; refining our answers to ensure we achieve full marks. 

In Topic lessons, we will be incorporating a new DT project based on designing a Harry Potter themed board game. We will be making these and even evaluating each others by playing them.

Week beginning 5-3-18

Year 3

We are lucky to have been loaned some Rocket car kits and will be using these in class next week. Our challenge will be to see who can create a car that will travel the furthest using a combination of scientific and design skills. 

Next week, in maths, we are moving away from fractions and revising our place value knowledge. We will learn how to solve problems, number puzzles and sort number sequences.

Year 4

This week Year 4 will be focussing on rounding decimals and decimal equivalents in mathematics. In literacy we will reading Viking myths and also completing our SFA assessments. In science we will continue with studying the process of freezing, melting, evaporating and condensing… very topical!
Swimming for 4J on Monday and PE for all of Year 4 on Wednesday.

Year 5

After an impromptu four day weekend, Year 5 are looking forward to returning to our learning about space!
 
We will be continuing our exploration of fractions: working out how to calculate fractions of an amount and how this relates to percentages.  We enjoyed creating our own rocket cars in our design and technology lessons last week, so we will complete this learning by writing up our evaluation of our designs.  In art, we are continuing to develop our observational skills, focussing on features of the face.  
 
We are looking forward to:
  • seeing parents on our parents’ evenings, to share children’s successes so far.  If you have not yet made an appointment, please contact the school office.  
  • Book Week! Dress as your favourite book character day will now take place on Friday 9th March.  Quiz competition entries need to be returned to 6WB.
Please ensure your child is appropriately dressed for the weather.  Children can only be taken outside if they have suitable attire.
As always, please ensure your child has a complete P.E. kit in school (including trainers) on Monday, ready for their P.E. lesson.
Don’t forget to read regularly and record it in your reading diary, these are to be brought into school for checking on a Wednesday.

Year 6

Next week, in maths, we will be continuing our learning about geometry, including: properties of 2D and 3D shapes, translation and coordinates. 

During SFA, we will be continuing to answer questions based on the text: The Midnight Fox; refining our answers to ensure we achieve full marks. 

Throughout topic work, we will be completing our ongoing D&T topic based on making Tudor pouches. We will also be completing sketches of the Harry Potter crests.
