Another busy week full of imagination in English, multiplying and dividing in Maths and investigating in science.
This week, we have continued using the book 'Windrush Child' to inspire our writing in English. We've written diary entries in character, used conjunctions in a piece of writing giving advice for children coming to England, and used relative clauses to add extra information when writing about things we are grateful for. In Maths, we've practised using the formal long multiplication method to multiply 2 digit numbers by 4 digit numbers, and refined our used of short division. In Science, we investigated how we can tell whether a chemical reaction has taken place. Some of the clues include smell, change in colour and fizzing. We conducted an investigation into this by mixing some vinegar with baking powder to observe what happened. History took a local focus and we thought about how Devon changed during the industrial revolution. In P.E., we worked on counter balances in pairs.
Next week is the last week of this half term. We will be learning how to do long division in Maths, writing a persuasive speech in English and completing our science and history units.
Have a lovely weekend.
