We have had another wonderful week in Seals class. It has involved fun facts, equivalent fractions and line graphs!
We have continued our work on non-chronological reports this week. At the beginning of the week, children were tasked with writing an informative paragraph about a place in England. They turned notes into factual sentences and some even included parenthesis in their writing! For the rest of the week, we have been researching and planning for our own non-chronological reports about Iceland!
We have almost reached the end of our fractions unit of work. This week it has involved converting fractions, finding equivalent fractions, adding fractions and subtracting fractions. It has been challenging working with both improper fractions and mixed number fractions this week but the children have all worked incredibly hard to understand!
This week, we concluded our evaporation investigation. Over the last two weeks we have been monitoring the water levels of 3 containers, each placed in a different location. Yesterday, we recorded the results of our investigation in a table and then presented our findings using a line graph. We analysed our findings to help us write a scientific conclusion. Overall, we discovered that the higher the temperature, the quicker the rate of evaporation!
Children have been given some Maths homework this week. The task has been explained in class, but if you have any questions about this, please do get in touch.
