Term 4 Week 4

Term 4 Week 4

 

This week in Maths we have been revising our knowledge and learning about fractions. We have practised simplifying, adding and subtracting fractions. In Outdoor Learning, we also practised fractions. Using coloured chalks, we created our own fraction walls and played fraction snap and bingo.

In groups, we began creating our own street dance to Dance Monkey.

We have been having fun in DT making a variety of mechanisms, using levers and linkages, to create waving flags and moving dragons. Some of the mechanisms were very tricky!

For Home Learning this week we had a puzzle to solve. We had to work out how to get a chicken, a fox and a bag of grain across a river without them eating each other. We also made our own versions of the puzzle.

 In Art we chose whatever we wanted to create – painting or drawing – which was great fun.

Last week we had a times tables treasure hunt in small groups. We went outside to look for the clues and some of us struggled to find them all, as they were very well hidden!

We have started reading Tom’s Midnight Garden as our class book. We are really enjoying it so far…
