This week has been another busy week in Eagles. We have begun our new unit of Fractions in Maths, we written and edited some incredible Stories from other Cultures and we have investigated what plants need to survive.
Our Fractions unit got off to a good start this week, we have thought about equivalent fractions and reminded ourselves about fractions that are bigger than one. We then looked at turning these into mixed numbers. I am blown away with what they have remembered from Year 4 and brilliant use of manipulatives and bars to help us see those relationships - Well done, Eagles!
English involved us completing our Stories from another Culture. The children have worked very hard to edit and improve their stories this week using our editing stations, they have included some superb grammatical features including expanded noun phrases and correctly demarcated speech. Well done, Eagles.
Within our Topic lessons we have finished our Rainforest dioramas. We have thought carefully about the different layers of the Rainforest, which species of wildlife lives in each layer and what the conditions are like. I’m sure you will be very impressed with their efforts. We have also looked at lots of geographical features such as: longitude, latitude, equator, the Tropic of Cancer and Capricorns, the oceans and the continents - wow!
We had a brilliant PE lesson where we performed our final version of our 'Dance by Chance' choreography and we have learnt about The Last Supper and Leonardo De Vinci's amazing interpretation of it! In French we have been counting from 11 - 20 and continued our clarinet work with Claire and Carla.
We look forward to seeing those of you who have confirmed you are attending the Whitemoor Lakes trip presentation on Tuesday. If you can not attend this we will be uploading a Loom with information about the trip as well. If you have any questions before this or after you have watched the video please do not hesitate to ask.
Have a lovely weekend
