We have had quite a few highlights this week and are feeling very proud of the children. They worked extremely hard in their assessments this week. Our visitor on Wednesday who was completing some PE training said she was blown away by the behaviour of the children and their independence.
In science, we investigated magnetic force and next week we will be investigating upthrust. We have started our fractions unit and will continue that next week. During assembly on Tuesday, they learnt about a project to support wild birds in our area. In Geography, we have been starting our research on volcanoes. We will also be writing about volcanoes in English. Our fraction unit is well under way in maths and the children have been able to compare and order fractions. In Life Skills, we have been looking at stereotypes in the world of work. In science, we investigated magnetic forces as part of our work on non-contact forces. In French this week, we carried on learning about breakfast food. We noticed that some words are similar to English. In DT, we have been making 3D shapes from nets. We struggled with the folding and gluing but made rapid progress! In maths, we have been reviewing fact families, missing number sentences and number bonds to 100.
Thank you so much for taking the time to come to parents' evening. We really appreciate it.
