Our Work (Spring Term 1)
We have been working really hard at home this half term and studying our subjects through online remote learning using Purple Mash.
We have covered many things while we’ve been at home, from Myths in English (Louie wrote an epic myth this half term), converting from imperial to metric measures in Maths and Light in Science. We have enjoyed our PE at home through doing daily Joe Wicks or 5 - a -day. In our afternoon sessions we have kept up with our foundation subjects and looked at the SS Empire Windrush in History, Hinduism in RE and Coding in Computing. We have been using the apps on Purple Mash to complete our tasks and communicating with our teachers via Zoom lessons.
Our Work (Autumn Term 1)
In Maths, we focussed our learning on number, place value and multiplication. We remembered lots about our multiplication and could recall many times table facts. We applied our skills to be able to complete multiplication questions involving multiplying larger number by 2-digit numbers and used long multiplication for this.
In English, we studied ‘The Witches’ by Roald Dahl, looking at the language and vocabulary used by Roald Dahl in his writing and we used our reading skills to identify useful words and phrases and used summarising skills to make notes from the text. We used these within our writing and produced a guide for spotting a REAL witch, also in descriptive writing we wrote about The Grand High Witch.
Science has been really interesting for us. We have been ‘Classifying Critters’ and we collected many creatures from outside (e.g. worms, ants, spiders etc.) and used scientific classification diagrams to help us tell the difference between the creatures we had found. We then sketched what we had found before releasing the creatures back into their natural habitats.
