We have had a very busy first couple of weeks to the half term! We have hit the ground running and got straight back into learning. Thank you to all the parents that came to parents evening this week, it was great to see so many parents in attendance.

In English, we have started looking at our new book the Iron man. We have completed descriptions of the character, the iron man and the setting the first chapter takes place in. We have also completed a book deduction activity along with a comprehension about what we have read so far. Towards the end of the week, children planned and began to write a diary entry from the point of view of the main character in the story.

In Maths, we have been looking at fractions. The children have been fantastic and very resilient. We have tackled some difficult concepts but have always prevailed. We have learnt about the addition and subtraction of fractions, finding equivalent fractions, ordering fractions and placing them on a number line.

In Topic, we have continued to look at the Romans. This week we used atlases to locate different Roman towns throughout Britain.

In Science, we have been looking at sound. We have learnt about how sound travels and this week we learnt the structure of the ear and created an explanation as to how humans hear.

In SMSC, children learnt about Martin Luther King Jr and what he did. They learnt about his impact in society and how he changed so many people’s lives for the better.

Well done to Louie this week, who was given star of the week for his brilliant attitude to learning.
