Here we are again at the end of another term! We have had a brilliant final week. It has involved double page spreads, decimals and comparisons!
This week, we have been planning and writing our final hot write of the term. The children have written non-chronological reports about our Geography focus, Iceland. The children were responsible for choosing what the paragraphs in their report would be about. They have chosen fantastic topics and have produced wonderful non-chronological reports! Instead of rewriting our work onto A4 paper, the children published their hot writes as a double page spread. They carefully planned out how they wanted to present their work and what pictures they would include and the end results are phenomenal!
We have now finished our fractions unit of work and are preparing to move on to decimals. This week we have completed our fractions end-of-unit assessment, represented tenths as fractions, represented tenths as decimals, practiced our times tables and attempted to solve an Easter themed mystery maths problem!
We have now reached the end of our Iceland unit of work. This week, we have discovered why Iceland is considered one of the ‘greenest’ countries in the world and thought about what Iceland can teach us about respecting our planet. We also spent time thinking about Reykjavik and Derby, considering how the two cities are similar and how they are different.
Children have not been given a sheet of homework to complete but have been asked to practice their spellings and times tables and read at home over the Easter break.
