Next week’s learning

Next week in topic we are further investigating light. We will be completing a few experiments to consolidate our current understanding of light moving in straight lines. We will also be looking at building our knowledge of The Blitz in order to eventually write a newspaper report.

This week’s learning

Topic

This week in topic we have written a letter to an individual at home as if we were an evacuee child who had just moved to the countryside. We also investigated light in science, specifically how shadows are formed.

Maths

This week in maths we have been reviewing our knowledge of fractions. We have looked at unit (1/4, 1/2, 1/3) and non-unit fractions (2/3, 2/4, 5/6, 3/10), compared, ordered and found fractions of quantities.

Homework

Topic

For the next couple of week we will be looking at the Blitz. Your task is to make an information poster on the Blitz. Remember to add as much detail as possible so that it will help you when you are doing your newspaper article. Include the 5 W’s (When? Why? What? Which? Where?)

Maths

Next week we will be looking at fractions. You should look at unit fractions and compare different fractions, saying if they are larger or smaller than each other. Also you need to know your greater than and less than signs, so comparing fractions will be easier.

Remember to complete your Mathletics challenges!
