We've had a really lovely week this week in Sycamore Class!
In English, we started our new unit of work based on the book 'Windrush Child'. We have learnt all about Generation Windrush and the experience of the people who moved to England for jobs following WW2. The children have been really empathetic and have written in role as someone moving from Jamaica to England, thinking about how they might have been feeling and the thoughts they might have had.
In Maths, we have had a busy week learning about factors, multiples, prime numbers, square and cube numbers! We move on next week to looking at the formal written methods for multiplication and division.
We conducted 3 investigations in science this week to look at how to separate mixtures through sieving, filtering and evaporation. Our history lesson took us back to the times of the Victorian inventors and we learnt about some of the revolutionary inventions which changed life forever. In French, we are learning how to introduce ourselves and say where we live and where we would like to live.
A highlight of this week was our workshop with the Devon Wildlife Trust. We were identifying mammals and learning how we could tell whether they have visited our gardens!
Enjoy some photos from this workshop and some from Art today, where we used a Chiaroscuro technique to make words look 3D by using light and shadows.
