What Have We Been Up To?

As well as continuing with Goodnight Mr Tom in our reading lessons, we have also read a short extract from White Fang and used a variety of skills to answer a range of questions on the text.

Our Listen Up Book is The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.

In English we have completed our flashback story and Miss Carr was really impressed by them all. We have also started to think about ideas for the 500 word story (a national competition) which we will be entering.

In maths we have had a bit of a mixture of learning. We have consolidated our understanding of calculating with negative numbers, applied our understanding of multiplication to use one known fact to work out another and have learnt how to divide by a 2-digit number. Finally, we have learnt how to calculate the mean and apply this understanding to solving problems.

In Topic, we have applied our maths skills to make a gas mask box from a net that the children measured and cut out themselves. We also learnt a short rap about World War Two which the children performed and then they wrote a second verse in small groups. Finally, we thought about three personal items which we might want to pack in our suitcase and take away with us when we were evacuated.

In science we learnt about how we see things and the path light takes to get to our eyes.

In PE, we have been doing gymnastics.
