Another week passes by!
In English this week, the children story mapped the text 'Leon and the Place Between'. This helps them remember the language and sentence structures used so that they can replicate these in their own writing. The story maps look great and really embedded the story in their minds.
In Maths, we've been exploring fractions in depth. We've been converting between mixed numbers and improper fractions using number lines, bar models and physical resources to help us with this. Our next step is to be able to find equivalent fractions.
Science was a lovely lesson where we learnt about the planets in our solar system. I shared my mnemonic which helps me remember them: My (Mercury), Very (Venus), Early (Earth), Morning (Mars), Jam (Jupiter), Sandwiches (Saturn), Usually (Uranus), Nauseate (Neptune)! There were some very creative ideas for other mnemonics also.
In Geography, we talked about some of the possible advantages and disadvantages of migration on the source and host countries. The children took a very mature approach to this and we had some fab discussions.
PE was great fun this week as Sofiia kindly helped to lead the session and share some traditional Ukrainian dance moves with us! Everyone enjoyed themselves and it was lovely to be able to share different cultures.
Next week we look forward to our trip to Newquay zoo and lots of other exciting Science week activities!
Have a great weekend.
