Term 1 Week 5

Hi all,

Another wonderful week in Rowan Class.

In Literacy we continued to learn about our text: Goodnight Mr Tom. We wrote some fantastic character descriptions about Mr Tom, amazing setting descriptions about the main character's home that he left behind as well as his host's home and some great dialogue. Next week we'll be writing our own evacuee story using all of the knowledge we've learnt throughout this text.

In maths;

Our Year 6's learnt about addition and subtraction up to 1,000,000 using the column method.

Our Year 5's learnt about rounding up to 1,000,000 to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10,000 and 100,000.

In topic;

We continued our Spanish learning about describing healthy eating and drinking.

We continued our RE learning about Sikhism through which we were understanding how people of this religion commit to their religion.

In Science we learnt about how to conduct a fair scientific investigation involving variables. The children conducted their own investigation fairly about which type of ball rolls the furthest.

Looking forward to another wonderful week next week.

Kind regards,

Mr Askew
