Walnut Term 5 Week 5

The children have been amazing this week as they've been working as a whole class in the mornings during Maths time, while the Year 6 did their SATs. They have still been working hard completing a Maths project about money. They have been so good at reasoning to solve money word problems.

In Literacy we have been looking at persuasive writing and the different features we can use. The children have then been creating adverts using persuasive features to sell undesirable and unappealing products. 

In History we looked at the future of transportation and how Elon Musk and his inventions could change our lives in the future. In Art we looked at sketching techniques to design our own cars for the future and then mixed watercolours to create new designs. We then recreated these designs in our computing using Tinkercad. 

During Science we've created a maze on a plastic bottle. We then dropped a coin into the bottled and used magnets to guide the coin through the maze. The children enjoyed this lesson and understood the science behind it.

We hope you have a lovely weekend. 

From Mrs Jacobs, Mr Dodd and Mrs Relf.
