This week in Literacy we have continued to read Goodnight Mr Tom. We have stepped into William's shoes and tried to imagine what life was like for him as an evacuee. To support this we linked it to topic and did some research into what life was like in war torn England. We wrote a diary entry from William's point of view, writing in the first person, utilising emotive language and using words associated with war, eg, evacuee, Anderson Shelter. We looked at how to edit our writing for improvement.
In Maths, Year 5 have continued with place value and have been counting forwards or backwards in steps of powers of 10 to numbers up to 1,000,000. They have also been looking at interpreting negative numbers in context, counting forwards and backwards with positive and negative whole numbers, including through zero.
Year 6 have been looking at how to round whole numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000, 100,000 and 1,000,000. Some children have found this challenging but have not given up! Well done to everyone.
In Science, we followed on from last week's learning and investigated which ball rolls the furthest. The children set up their own investigation, thinking about how to make it a fair test and what the variables were. Next week we shall record our results and conclusion.
We have also finalised our PowerPoints on WWII, and have a better understanding about WWII.
We completed the week with a class assembly to parents about the learning that has taken place so far this term.
The children are settling more and are adjusting to the class routines and expectations.
