It will come as no surprise to hear just how incredibly hard the Team has been working this past fortnight. In their Maths they have been showing a fantastic understanding towards finding unit and non-unit fractions of an amount. Here they have had to apply multiple skills as they have had to use division skills to find the unit fraction, before using multiplication to find the non-unit fraction. This week, we have also been investigating equivalent fractions. The class have looked at equivalents pictorially and practically. We have then explored these on a fraction wall. After some time, the class began to recognise rules for calculating an equivalent fraction. They realised "whatever you do to the numerator, you must also do to the denominator" to get an equivalent fraction. Next week, we will round off our work on fractions as we compare and order fractions of the same denominator and unit fractions.
In our Literacy we have been working hard and completed our fact file on our newly discovered sea creatures. The class have really loved this piece of writing and have shown a fantastic attitude towards it. We are really proud of the high quality pieces they have produced and these will look fantastic on our sea display this coming term. In our reading, we have been hooked on our termly reader "The Great Chocoplot". The class have worked hard to develop their explanation skills and begin to use the text as a source of evidence. They can now use quote marks with accuracy and have a good understanding of the importance of justifying their thoughts.
In Science, we have been exploring world habitats. The class were split into teams and given a world habitat to research. They needed to consider what the conditions of this habitat was, what creatures lived there and how they have adapted.
In History, we have continued our learning on the Roman Empire. We have learned about what Britain was like before the Roman invasion and how this lifestyle may have contribute to the success of the Roman's in conquering Britain. We will be moving on to looking at how the Roman's invaded next week and Boudicca.
This week we have also been working hard in Spanish learning different colours. In Music, we have been practicing our new song Bringing us together which is a disco tune. Finally, in computing we have concluded our unit of work on making music digitally. The children have absolutely loved the creative nature of this piece of computing and should be so very proud of their efforts! Well done on another fantastic fortnight of learning Team CB!
