Week commencing 24th Feb 2020
Maths - we have been continuing our learning on fractions, finding fractions of amounts and comparing and ordering fractions with different denominators.
English - we have been inventing animals and planets and writing information texts about them. The children also wrote an adventure story independently, putting into practice everything they have learned.
Science - we are learning about the space race. This week, we learnt about the key political players at the start of this period in history - Truman, Stalin and Churchill. We learnt how the Russians were the first to get a satellite into space. The children wrote diary entries from the perspective of either a Russian or an American citizen, imagining their thoughts and feelings on hearing the new of Sputnik's launch.
Art - we have started creating planets using papier mache, while also developing our team work and collaoration skills.
