This week has been such an enjoyable week in Team CB. We have been full of enthusiasm for learning and have created some absolutely fantastic diary extracts about Christmas as a child. The class have been so incredibly immersed in their writing and have produced some fantastic work as a result. We have edited our drafts and will spend time publishing these in best before storing them in a time capsule for the children to open at the end of their Park Street journey.
Elsewhere, in Maths we have started our new unit of multiplication and have made a good start to investigating the new content. The class have looked at multiples as well as multiplying by 10 and 100. We will be continuing this learning next week, as we begin to look at formal written methods for multiplication and exploring factors.
In our Science this week we have been busy investigating what makes a circuit complete and incomplete. We used the electrical equipment to create our own circuits and test their effectiveness. We have also explored the concepts of "conductors" and "insulators". The class were fantastic at making links to types of materials which would conduct and those which would not. A truly brilliant scientific inquiry full of inquisitive minds and questions.
Next week we will be moving on to a new Literacy unit which closely follows on from our last theme of Christmas. It should conclude with a wonderful performance for parents the following week. Check back for more updates then.
