What a super start to the Summer term it has been, and especially lovely that the Sun has stayed out for us too. We hope you had a lovely, restful Easter break and are raring to go for our last term of the year.
In English we have been learning about discussion texts. We looked at a number of different discussion texts to identify the features of this type of writing. Linking to our climate change project, we chose to write our discussion text on whether we should use renewable energy sources or not. We had a super debate about this in class and the children have written some very informative Hot Writes.
In Maths this week Year 4 have reached the end of their Fractions unit, learning how to calculate fractions of quantities.
Year 5 have continued their fractions unit, learning how to subtract both improper fractions and mixed numbers.
We have also finished our Geography topic on Climate Change. The children have created an incredibly presented scrapbook with a huge amount of information on what climate change is, how it is affecting our world and how we must/can do our bit to combat it. This week, we spoke about Earth Day and have been planning the 'finale' of our climate change project which took place today. This included a protest around school, raps and songs about climate change and even some fancy dress! The aim of our 'finale' was to send a message to everyone in school and encourage others to be as passionate about climate change and making a difference to the world as we are in Seals class! We will now be moving on to our Science term which is going to involve lots of fun and exciting learning opportunities.
Have a lovely weekend!
