Term 4 Week 3

This week we have been looking at newspaper reports in our Literacy lessons. We have started to look at the features of the text and written our own introductions for an article about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. 

In Maths, Year 4 have been looking at equivalent fractions and have shown real resilience in learning how to use diagrams and times table knowledge to work the calculations out. Year 3 have been looking at capacity and measure and looking at the practical uses of being able to measure capacity, before trying some problem solving questions. 

In Science, the children loved having a go at our volcano experiment, mixing baking powder and vinegar and placing it in a container with only a small hole at the top. We made a bit of a mess on the playground, but the children really enjoyed learning about the reactions and posing their own scientific questions about how they could extend the investigation.

In Topic we looked at musical terminology, and how we could use them to describe some classical pieces of music.
