Week beginning 4th December

In Literacy this week, we have been looking at a applying our skills we studied from the Rhythm and Poetry collection by Karl Nova. We have included rhythm, rhyme and beat to our own poems and used our knowledge of figurative language to write our own poems. We will also be using these skills in Music as we will be creating beats on Garage Band to perform our poems to.

In Maths, Year 6 the children have been learning about the four operations and using formal methods to calculate sums. They have also been looking at how to deal with remainders and convert them into decimals. Year 5 have finished off their fractions learning clarifying how to add and subtract fractions with and without whole numbers. We then moved on to looking at Roman numerals and using them to represent numbers.

In PE, we are beginning to learn how play mini matches in tag rugby. The children are becoming more confident working as a team and how to best defend point scoring areas/players. We also looked at fitness and how different exercises work different body parts. This week, applied this to our own fitness routines.

In Science this week, we looked at how the body changes through the human life cycle. We discussed the changes and milestones of each phase of life.

In RE, we have been looking at equality and what religion can teach us about treating people equally. This week we looked at artistic representations of equality and spreading positive messages about inclusion.
