We've had a great final week of this half of term! Here are the highlights...
In English, the children wrote their own biographies for fictional record-breakers after reading about some great achievements in 'Fantastically Great Women who Changed the World'. We had the first woman to climb Mount Everest, the person who ate a record number of cheeseburgers in a minute and someone who achieved the highest horse jump. They really enjoyed publishing their writing today, adding illustrations and thinking about the layout.
In Maths, we have been working on techniques for subtraction. The children have been great at using the column method to do this.
Science was a lot of fun (and mess) this week! We made 'Oobleck'. The children used their observation skills to see how it acts as both a solid and a liquid.
Our last lesson in our History unit was all about the fall of the Roman Empire.
In PSHE, we discussed what good and bad secrets are. The children learnt that it's ok to keep a good secret (e.g. a surprise birthday present), but it's important to tell a trusted adult if they know a secret which makes them uncomfortable (we called these bad secrets).
Please keep reading over half term and recording this in reading diaries. I'd also love to see lots of times table practise. We did a mock Times Table Check in class yesterday and children can access the website we used by logging into Google Classroom at home using their school log in details. I am also uploading a document with lots of other great sites for practising times tables.
Have a lovely half term and I look forward to seeing everyone again in November!
