Happy New Year to all our pupils and parents and welcome to the start of another exciting term.

Predators

Week 2

Science – Predators

In our topic lessons this week, we have continued to explore our predator topic. We have been learning all about different food chains whilst learning some new vocabulary by exploring producers and consumers. The children were given the task to produce their own food chains with the animals of their choice, using digital technology to do so. We have also learnt all about fossils and the process that they go through to become what they are today.

 

Maths – Division

In maths this week we have continued to look at division using the bus stop method. The pupils have done exceptionally well with it being a real challenging topic, but through their perseverance and timetables knowledge they have been able to divide 3 digit numbers by 1 digit, as well as having to regroup their columns at the same time.

 

English – Varjak Paw

In our English lessons we were given the opportunity to write our diary entries in the role of Varjak Paw. The children were given 2 lessons to produce their piece of writing which they had planned themselves. Upon completion the children were asked to edit their work with a partner taking it upon themselves to find spelling, punctuation and grammar mistakes to correct with their purple polishing pens. Before taking it to the next level by being critical identifying what their strengths and areas of improvement are to help inform their next piece of writing.

 

Week 1

Science – Predators

In science this week we have started our new topic for the term ‘Predators’. The children have performed some independent research into the topic analysing food chains and categories that different predators fit into based upon their dietary requirements.

 

Maths – Division

In maths this week we have been looking at division having introduced the children to the bus stop method, allowing them to use their timetables knowledge to help facilitate their own learning. The children have been able to break down the questions into digestible chunks making division easier for them to understand each question and obtain their answers.

 

English – Varjak Paw

In English this week we have started our new class book of Varjak Paw. The children have been able to really engage in the book through the use of freeze frames taking on the role of different characters. The children were given the task to explore different features of a diary entry, before having the opportunity to plan their own.
