Week beginning 20/01/20

Last week's learning breakdown:

 

English - main focus was creating atmosphere - some amazing writing was done! They really understood how to create mood and describe their surroundings. Ask them about the setting and atmosphere they will use in their narrative writing next week. Will they use all the senses to create the atmosphere?

 

Maths - children should be able to multiply up to 4-digit numbers by a 2-digit number, using a written column method, and are perfecting their short division (bus-stop) method for 4-digits divided by 1-digit. If children do not know their tables, they are using multiplication charts to help them. Well done Zac and Freddie for showing you know all your table facts in the test.

 

Science - Biology focus - Evolution and Inheritance. this week we focussed on how we inherit characterisitics from our parents and other ancestors, although we are never exactly the same! Vocabulary that was important was: inherit, inheritance, hereditary, genes, reproduce and offspring. We learnt about Gregor Mendel, who found out inheritance was not just simply mixing characterisitics together and how information was passed down through DNA. The children enjoyed drawing offspring that might result from Mr. Men and Little Miss parents.

 

RE - Judaism (Rites of Passage) 

 

Art and Design - super emojis created in the ICT suite to represent our emotions.

 

Humanities - children need to know the 4 countries of the United Kingdom (only about 2 did!) and the capital cities of these countries. We are exploring human settlement and how our local area has developed. 

 

PE - Mrs Stone is teaching fitness through circuits, etc. outside and inside, we are creating a dance that tells the story of evolution, whilst learning how to work in pairs to create a sequence of moves and how important your 'performance area' is. Some fabulous moves produced to show key stages, such as the first fish and mammals. This class loves dance!

Impact day was a thrilling day of science - the highlight being the visit to the planetarium, from the moment we squeezed through the padded, tunnel-like entrance to the glorious images of the night sky, which enfolded magnificently on the ceiling of the dome. We also tested awesome rocket mice, designed magnificent spacesuits and created mnemonics to help us remember the order of the planets, as they orbit the Sun. Learning at its best!
