English

This week we started reading our new text: Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo.  We spent the week planning and writing our own newspaper report about the Morpurgo family sailing around the world.  We focused on the 5Ws (Who, What, Where, When Why), direct and indirect quotes, adverbials of time and bias.  We will continue these writing skills next week.

Maths

This week, the children have learnt how to convert fractions into decimals and then decimals to percentages.  We then moved the children on to find percentages of an amount.

Afternoon lessons:

This week, we revisited our British Values and started our new Thematic Curriculum topic – That’s Shocking!  We explored games and activities that are powered using batteries or electricity and learnt about famous inventors who are important in the world of electricity! We also learnt about how items are powered using mains electricity and batteries and what items use both.  We revisited conductors and insulators also.
