Science week

In science week, our focus was the digestive system. We looked at the function of our teeth and processes involved in digestion. We carried out research, experiments and made models that demonstrated the function of the digestive system. The children had lots of fun!

 

Maths

This term is maths, we are securing our knowledge of times tables and division facts. We are finding fractions of numbers and quantities through using our division knowledge. We have also solved many problems involving fractions of quantities and explaining our method of reasoning.

English

This term, we are reading the epic tale Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo. We are in the process of writing persuasive arguments to get the villagers to help fight the monster Grendal. The children have written a persuasive magazine article this week and have used a range of persuasive features including rhetorical questions, facts, power of three and causal connectives.
