Last week in year 4 we got out our samba instruments to practise for our band, we starting putting all our individual instrument parts together. In maths we did real life problems about a cake sale to raise money for our class charity. Also in maths we did column multiplication to use in problem solving. Then in literacy we have been using embedded clauses to write diaries and newspaper reports about Rio carnival.
This week in 5PD we have been doing animations using iMovie on the iPad’s. In literacy we have been planning our on pourquoi (just so) stories. In maths we have been investigating area and perimeter.
Last Friday we had treat time watching Inside Out whilst eating popcorn – it was a real treat!
This week we have made animations to do with the rainforest. We used Lego, play dough, play mobile and stationary. We also had fun in maths, P.E and literacy!
In literacy we have been looking at poems and paragraphs on rain and drought. We also had some exiting new pens! In maths we have recently been focusing on finding the missing angles of shapes. Also converting measurements; it was challenging!
A special shout out to Mrs Savage for reading the best horror stories ever – we were on the edge of our seats!
In maths we have been learning to find missing angles and lengths, we did this by using our knowledge of shapes. We explored that all triangles angles add up to 180 degrees. In English we have been doing descriptive writing about rain and droughts which we really enjoyed.
YEAR 6 LEARNING
In literacy last week Year 6 learnt about poems and we made our own poems about any animal of our choice. We learnt how to use repetition, alliteration and onomatopoeia . In mathematics we learnt about shapes and how to use a protractor accurately. In the afternoon we played doge ball in P.E to work on our teamwork.
5AG RAINFOREST WRITING
We have been writing show not tell descriptions about rainforest animals. We had to include skills such as; simple compound and complex sentences, similes and metaphors and past tense.
We also had fun playing football in PE and solving fraction problems in maths.
In Year 5 we have started a new topic about Rainforests. In literacy we have been doing a paragraph about an encounter with an animal of your choice. We had to focus on simple, compound and complex sentences. In maths we have been learning to add and subtract fractions with different and the same denominators. We are enjoying our football and our sitting down volleyball in PE.
In Year four we have been learning about Samba and Rio. We have been on the Samba instruments and explored what noises they make. Last week we played all the instruments in the hall, it was great fun! In literacy we have been doing different sentence types for example; compound, complex and simple sentences. We then used them in our writing for a Samba information text. In maths we have been looking at the short division method. We then started to use it to solve tricky division word problems.
We have our new digital leaders who will be updating our blog to tell you all about our leaning! We hope you enjoy reading!
