Happy Red Nose Day!
It was great to see all the children joining in with the dance this morning. Well done Faith and Bishop Bronescombe.
This week we have been investigating ratio in maths- from linear patterns to scale factors. The children have immersed themselves with their learning and have produced a lot of work this week too!
The children have been trying really hard with their 99 Club challenge (like they do every week). It's starting to show as we have had lots of children moving up in the last few weeks- well done all!
In English we have been have planned our own myth after looking at: How Giraffe got his long neck. The children have written the beginning of their stories and are starting to write the body of the text. It's great to see the children incorporating different language features into their writing.
In topic we have been investigating Tutankhamun. All the children have used a range of sources to find out about the life of Tutankhamun.
This term our new topic is Egypt.
We have been very busy so far this term. We have been investigating the question... What does Egypt have to offer? The launch of the topic included Egyptian Sand dancing and Belly dancing, which was followed by pyramid designing and making from using spaghetti and marshmallows. We have been busy learning our names in hieroglyphics.
In English we are writing a persuasive text based on a brochure to entice people to visit Egypt. We have been thinking about all of our persuasive writing techniques and language features.
In Maths we have been focusing on area and perimeter this week. We have been able to use our skills to answer word-based questions.
In Topic we have been looking at river profiles and how they change from the source to the mouth.
