We started work again this morning after the October break, and heard lots of interesting stories about what everyone had been up to during the holiday week!
Looking ahead, we plan to continue to concentrate on various types of writing this term, allowing the class to develop their own styles of writing as they tackle a variety of genres. We will also be looking closely at grammar and punctuation on a weekly basis, and revising some things we have come across before, as well as having a more in-depth look at how we are punctuating our work.
In maths, we will be moving on to a period of working on fractions and decimals, and linking this in to percentages. In addition, we will spend some time looking at co-ordinates.
During the final week of last term, we spent some time creating a huge class “chain reaction”, as part of our project work. We filmed the bits we had made, but a good number of the children now have ideas to further enhance it, so we will continue to work on this and when the filming is finished, I will need to edit the whole film ready for it to be uploaded to this year’s European Chain Reaction website which is an exciting science based competition that we will take part in against countries from all over Europe! In addition this term, we will be looking at two other projects, Going Green and Mapping.
Can I please remind everyone that we have gym each week on a Tuesday and a Thursday, so everyone needs to have their P.E. kit on these days. Miss Traill will continue to work with the class on Wednesdays- do have a look at the great drumming work P5/6 did last term (below) and Miss Turbayne will continue with the violinists on Thursday afternoons.
