Term 2 Week 3

Hi all,

Another excellent week completed in Rowan Class.

In Literacy we've continued with our text: The City of Ember. Throughout this week the children have mainly focused on describing both the character and the setting by using and manipulating different tools and strategies. The children have completed some brilliant pieces pieces of learning including a character description of Doon as well as a setting description of the Unknown Regions using all five senses.

In Maths our Year 5s have been learning about multiplying and dividing numbers including decimals by 10, 100 and 100 while our Year 6s have been learning about converting between fractions, decimals and percentages. Both year groups have moved towards using these skills practically to complete problem solving and mastery style questions later in the week.

In PE we've continued with our topic of tag-rugby through which we've embedded our knowledge of passing correctly and moved onto passing correctly and accurately whilst in game-play scenarios.

In PSHE we've been learning about 'the importance of failure' throughout which we thought about the reason we fail and the benefits that come from failure.  

In History the children have selected an invention/inventor and used an accurate time line to represent their life/invention.

Have a great weekend.

See you all on Monday.

Kind regards,

Mr Askew and Mr Bowles
