Here’s what we’ve been learning this week!

In year 1 we have started reading the story Hoot Owl by Sean Taylor. The children used their imagination to create an illustration of what they thought Hoot Owl could see as he travelled through the night. Our maths topic is length and height. The children compared the length and height of different objects and used vocabulary such as ‘longer than’ and ‘shorter than’. In History we have been learning about Mae Jemison and we created some art work to show what Earth looks like from space.
In Year 2 this week in literacy we have created our own stories based on The Dark by Lemony Snicket, but from the dark’s perspective. In maths we have been using a blank number to add and subtract 10 to 2-digit numbers. In our All Around the World topic we learnt all about Marie Tharp, a scientist, learning about the hugely important work that she did and what made it even harder for her. We also learnt about greenhouse gases and climate change and what we can do to help.
In Year 3 this week we have been reading The First Drawing by Mordicai Gerstein and writing a diary entry. In Maths we have been solving multiplication problems by using different strategies. We have been recalling our 3, 4 and 8 times tables. In Science we have been describing different types of rocks and looking at their properties.
In Year 4 this week the children have written diary entries from the point of view of Ruskin, a character from ‘Krindlekrax’. This work also tied in with ‘Anti bullying Week’. The maths focus this week is multiplication and the children used ‘arrays’ and investigated ‘factors’ of numbers . In P.E we have continued to prepare for our ‘cross country’ challenge next week.
In Year 5 literacy this week we performed and wrote a scene with dialogue between the Fir Tree and the Mouse. We have also been learning spellings with the suffix ment. Apologies Year 5 as we were unable to do our weekly test today! In maths we finished looking at statistics and have just started our unit on multiplication and division. So far, we have been looking at multiples.
In Year 6 we have enjoyed looking deeper into the struggles and hardships endured by the suffragette movement as they fight for ‘Vote for Women’ in this country. In numeracy, we are understanding the formula for finding the perimeter and area of rectilinear 2d shapes, including triangles. We look forward to finding out more about your World War 2 research projects too. Well done to all the children (and thank you, parents) that have been involved in home learning – we have been really impressed with their sensible attitude and look forward to further learning online next week.
Have a great weekend!
