Term 1 Week 7

Hi all,

Another brilliant week completed in Rowan Class.

In Literacy we've focused on our new story: Flotsam (picture book). We've done a lot of learning around inference to help us understand the boys character as well as inferring what he might like to do when he's older. We've also focused on climate change as this book looks at pollution in our oceans so we've researched this topic closely and wrote letters to Greta Thunberg.

In Maths our Year 5's haveĀ used data presented to them in a line graph to answer questions, they have determined temperatures at a given time and been provided data which they have presented in a labelled graph with appropriate scale from scratch. They have also used reasoning and problem-solving to identify the mistakes in graphs presented to them. While our Year 6's have been learning about long and short multiplication as well as long and short division. At the end of the week moving onto learning about common factors, common multiples and prime numbers.

In topic we've used all of our knowledge from the term to design our own island which includes human and physical features. We've also checked in on our microorganisms experiment where we are attempting to grow mold. This is going extremely well (maybe too well) and we've been recording the data as we go.

Have a great weekend everyone. See you all Monday.

Kind regards,

Mr Askew & Mr Bowles
