Week beginning 18th September
In English, we have started writing our own information text about wizards. In our wizardology pages so far, we have written about famous wizards of the world as well as the typical appearance of a wizard and where they can be found using ambitious vocabulary choices and formal language.
In maths we have been focussing on decimals and rounding to the nearest tenth and hundredth.
In science this week we started looking at electric circuits. We experimented with how we could make a bulb brighter or dimmer in a circuit using just batteries, wires and bulbs and thought about why this happened.
In History we have researched who the Anglo-Saxons were and answered questions about what life would have been like for the Anglo Saxons as well as how it is different to the way we live now.
Week beginning 11th September
In English this week, we have started looking at our Dragonology text. We thought about what kind of information is in the book and learnt some interesting facts about dragons. We have some very keen dragonologists among us and we’re all looking forward to creating our own mythical beast to write an information page about!
In maths, we have been looking at rounding to the nearest 10, 100, 1000 and 10,000 as well as multiplying decimals by powers of 10. We looked carefully at what happened to the place value of each digit as we did this.
In History we have started our Anglo Saxons and Viking topic. We looked at when the Anglo Saxons and Vikings were around by making a giant timeline in the hall. We then explored where the invaders came from compared to where we all live.
We have also begun campaigning for the upcoming school council elections and have had some superb manifesto writing taking place.
