This week in English Oak class have been focusing on diary writing as a solider in the trenches. We have been thinking about how to use cohesive devises and modal verbs in our writing. In maths we have been focusing on multiplying and dividing, we have been using our written methods to support our problem solving. We are looking forward to sharing our learning next week in our class assembly.
This week the children in Oak class have been looking at factors, multiples, prime and square numbers, we have carried out different investigations involving these numbers. See below one of our investigations and how Caleb managed to solve it. For our harvest assembly Oak class wrote harvest poems, which will be displayed in the school entrance next week. Below are a few of our harvest poems.
This week Oak class have carried out a science investigation testing the optimum wing length of a paper helicopter. We made some scientific predictions however some of us were surprised at the results as they were not what we had expected. We have been thinking about surface area and air resistance in our prediction and conclusion.
This week has been a busy first week in the classroom. In maths we have been working on our place value and working with up to 7 digit numbers; we have been rounding and partitioning our numbers. In English we have written a recount of our favourite activities from residential trip. In art we worked in teams to create collage planes which flew in the Battle of Britain. To end our week we enjoyed sharing our diaries and pictures from residential trip with our parents.
Week 1 What an amazing first week back to school. We are all really proud of the children and the way they worked together as team, showed resilience with the challenging activities and enjoyed their week away.
