This week our maths focus has been fractions. We have used both shapes and numbers to find a fraction of a number. The children have been using practical methods to investigate find halves by folding shapes and sharing a whole number equally. Here are some of the photos we have taken this week.
Our literacy lessons this week have involved planning and writing our own stories about a pirate. We carefully thought about the main characters, where the story was going to be set, what the build-up in the story would be, the problem, a resolution and an ending. As an extra challenge we tried using our knowledge of expanded noun phrases and similes to support out descriptive writing.
Here are a few pictures of some of the children acting out what they had planned their story to be about.
Mr Burgin took the children on a science investigation this week. The children were testing how to make a healthy field for a football pitch, based around the topic of plants. Here are a few pictures of them on their investigation.
