We've have a great first week back. In English, we have been developing our persuasive writing skills linked to our class novel, George's Marvellous Medicine. We have also explored the war poem In Flanders Fields by John McCrae. We used the poem to create bookmarks for the community decorated by watercolour poppies. In history, we researched Remembrance Day and why people wear poppies, and the meaning behind the different coloured poppies.

We’ve had a brilliant final week before half term where we have learned about the human and animal skeletons, the difference between vertebrates and invertebrates and as part of our PE this week the children have all completed in a mini triathlon!

 

In maths we have continued to work on addition, using the column method, and also used practical resources to explore comparing numbers, ordering numbers and rounding numbers to 1000.

 

In English we have loved reading 'George's Marvellous Medicine'. We have introduced alliteration and have had brilliant fun in creating our own sentences using alliteration.

We’ve had a brilliant week completing our Design and Technology project.

It’s been another great week, the children have produced some amazing pieces of work. We have continued our Humans and Animals science project this week.  We explored our own diets and looked at proteins, diary and alternatives, carbohydrates and fruit and veg. We then looked at how we can make ourselves healthier and improve our diet to ensure we have enough energy. We have continued our class novel, The Worst Witch; we have created story maps and started to write our version with an event and a solution. This half term we are on our Place Value unit in maths. The focus this week has been: rounding to the nearest 10 and 100, 100s,100s,10s and 1s and number lines.
