Love to Learn
There will be a practical task of making musical instruments this week. If you have any recycling materials your child can bring in, it would be much appreciated. If they could bring these in before Wednesday.
We would also like the children to research about David Bowie. We would like them to consider why he is courageous in their opinions from this research.
In maths this week, the children were working on adding and subtracting decimals. The children focused on using place value correctly and applying their understanding of addition and subtraction.
In English, the children started by writing poetry. They focused on the lives of refugees and their circumstances. Later in the week, the children planned and wrote a balanced report arguing whether a character in the class text should have or should not have involved themselves in a disagreement. Emotive language, conjunctions and poetic features were some of the skills covered.
In Science, the children undertook different investigations based on sound and pitch. Predictions were made and then the children undertook practical activities to test their theories.
In maths next week, the children will be working on:
>Using the distributive law: 32x3 = (30x3) + (2x3) = 90+6 = 96
>To use associative law to multiply three numbers
>To solve problems using scaling
To derive multiplication and division facts from three digit numbers
In English, the children will be beginning to look at persuasion, concentrating on persuasive sentence openers, turning opinion into fact and model verbs.
In Science, the children will continue consolidating their understanding of pitch and volume. They will undertake an investigation focusing on creating a fair test. In addition, the children will look at how sound waves are formed and the different ways of representing them. The children will also be making musical instruments based on their understanding of how sound is made.
In PSHE, the children will continue their work on this term’s champion: David Bowie. They will learn more about why he is courageous but also experiment with his unique sense of style. The children will use face paints to recreate some of his unique looks. Please do inform the class teacher if this is not appropriate for your child as we are aware some children have allergies.
