We have had a really busy week completing assessments in reading and maths. The children have showed in their maths how they are starting to master column method independently and they have really applied themselves to every question. The challenge really rises in KS2 and they have done admirably. They should be really proud of themselves. You will see a lot of Dojos going on! The children have written their geography essay focusing on what causes volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. They know about tectonic plates and we have discussed the Ring of Fire. Ms Boyce has also taught them earthquakes drills so they are all prepared should we have one...!
In computing, the children can write yes/no questions and make a branching database. I'm sure they will be able to show you. We used the playground and some chalk to sort our class by our different attributes. In Life Skills, we investigated Fake News and thought about how we can spot it.
Next week, we are looking forward to making our own branching databases. We will be writing a haiku and getting further into our maths work on fractions.
Hope you have a good rest of the week and weekend.
