We have had another successful week in Foxes class! It has involved setting descriptions, science, sporting fun and much more!
In English, we have continued our ‘Adventure Stories’ writing unit. At the beginning of the week, we identified the structure of our model text, using evidence from the text to summarise each paragraph. Children then focused on writing a detailed setting description and used this to help them plan their very own adventure story. Children completed their Hot Writes at the end of the week and their creative writing skills (and handwriting) have impressed us all!
Both year groups have continued to learn more about decimals this week. In Year 4, this has involved making a whole, writing decimals, comparing decimals and ordering decimals. In Year 5, children have been rounding, ordering and comparing decimals, as well as understanding percentages towards the end of the week.
During Science this week, the children started thing about the difference between reversible and irreversible reactions. We looked at some different processes that happen in the kitchen and thought about whether the original materials could be recovered or not.
This week, we took part in another sporting competition, and this time is was Basketball! Children were given one minute to complete 3 challenges: Dribbling, Shooting and Passing. Unfortunately, rain stopped play so we’ll be finishing these off on Monday. This week, we were fortunate enough to take part in Nerf Wars and Zorbing as part of the sports enrichment day. It is safe to say that the children loved this experience and had a spectacular time!
It was a pleasure to speak to so many of you via Teams this week! I look forward to speaking to more of you next week!
Have a lovely weekend,
