Week Beginning 4th May 2021
Even with a four-day week, we have certainly been busy. We have created some fantastic informal letters to Beowulf asking him about his gruesome battle with Grendel. Our amazing letters have paragraphs, contractions words, descriptive language and we have carefully written the address at the top. In maths, we have continued our work on fractions, looking at accurately place them on number lines. In Topic we have began our new history unit looking at the Anglo-Saxons. We spoke about when the Romans left and looked at the different 'Anglo-Saxon' kingdoms that were in England. An amazing week!
Week Beginning 26th April 2021
Wow! We have had an amazing week. We have investigated the perimeter of our Forest School and then completed some maths challenges. In English, we have been looking at the story of Beowulf and we are planning to write an informal letter to him soon. We spoke about the difference of formal and informal letters this week. We have also started fractions in maths and Mrs Broda-Kaye has been amazed at our work! We have added fractions, created whole numbers and worked out different tenths. It has been a busy and productive week.
Week Beginning 19th April 2021
This week we have continued to work on measure. On Monday we went into Forest School and measured different pieces of nature. We have also been busy investigating perimeter and looking at different shapes that all have the same perimeter. Our measurement skills have been really accurate and our teacher has been really impressed!
In Geography, we had the exciting task to create our own city, town or village but we had to ensure we had the correct facilities. We worked really well to create our 3D models. Most of our designs had rivers or lakes as we know many cities and towns are situated near or around water. We are very excited to continue and finish this piece next week.
Week Beginning 12th April 2021
To begin our topic 'On the Move', we have enjoyed a week learning about Settlements. We discussed the different settlements and facilities we have in Elm and Wisbech and how these differ. The class all had a vote on where they would like to live. Most of us in class wanted to live near a city as we discovered there are more facilities and activities to enjoy.
In Religious Education, we spoke about who we are to each other. For example, we are sisters, brothers, grand-children, cousins, gymnasts and friends. We created a cube to show that we are one person, with different relations and roles.
