Week Beginning 28/1/19
Well done to our pupil of the week, he was chosen for applying new skills in his topic work. He has also been working hard to get on to new challenges and extending his learning by explaining processes to others.
In Geography we have been learning about lines of longitude and latitude. We used these to help us to find countries on a map. In science we have begun to talk about deforestation and how this effects our world.
In Writing we have been exploring persuasive texts. To immerse the children we looked at pictures of our beautiful world then the children were shocked to see new pictures of our world destroyed by plastic. We have been looking at the boxing up pattern and creating a text map. If you would like to know more about the strategies we use in writing, Mr Croutear is running a talk for writing work shop on Wednesday next week.
In Maths we have been learning about line graphs and how important it is to really look for patterns to help us understand what the graphs are trying to communicate.
In PE the children are still learning new skills and techniques for cricket.
The whole class are reading Goodnight Mister Tom. We are starting to get a feel what it was like during the war in preparation for our next topic.
Next week we are not handing our homework. Instead we are leaving this up to the children to choose what home learning project they would like to do. This will be linked to our new topic Blitzed Brits – World war 2 and will need to be handed in after half term.
I will be handing out some ideas on Tuesday next week and will have this placed on the class page.
We hope you all have a safe weekend!
