English
In English this week, we have been trying to identify and use formal vocabulary in our writing. We have been using questions to help us figure out whether the sentences are formal or informal and sometimes explaining how we know. We have also done a interesting slow write as a table. In this slow write, we had to have great creativity since it was about sharks in a wood and somehow we found ourselves lost there. We cannot wait for Miss Footitt to mark it and pick the winning table.

Maths
This week in maths, we have bee using a bar model to find out percentages. At first we did not get it but after we got a second lesson on it we understood more. We have also been ordering and comparing fractions, decimals and percentages. We found this quite difficult because of all the steps, but we eventually figured it out. We also finished a hot task about percentages and were very proud of our scores.

NSPCC
This week, we had a special visit from the NSPCC. They came to talk to us about how you need to speak out if child abuse is happening with you. We got a fun activity to do in a booklet that included what makes us happy and a chatter box. Thank you for coming NSPCC!

We have also had red nose day!

English
In English this week, we have been learning about facts and opinions. We have tried to find out the differences between facts and opinions, and we have done that through a discussion text about if children should eat chocolate for breakfast. What do you think? Also, we have been doing topic sentences and matching informal words to their formal synonyms.

Maths
In maths this week, we have been learning how to solve problems involving calculating percentages. We have also been using our knowledge of percentages to work out missing values. We had to go through a lot of steps to understand the method and achieve a green spot. We cannot wait to learn more methods and learn more about percentages.

World book day
Yesterday we came to school in our pyjamas. You are probably curious about why and there's a clue in the title. It was world book day and we had a bed time story session at the end of the day, when some of our parents got the opportunity to come and read with us too.

In English this week, we have been using our writing skills to progress to a discussion text. The most popular option to write a discussion text about, was cats or dogs. What would you pick? We have been highlighting in texts both formal languages and adverbials, since those are some of the tools you need to use when writing a discussion text.

This week in topic, we have been drawing our final pictures using all the skills we have learnt throughout the lessons. Even though we have not finished them yet, we are very proud of them. We have also been doing about if life were a object/thing we use in our everyday life, what would it be. We cannot wait to finish our drawings and get them to perfection and a high standard.

English
This week in English, we have been learning about how to hook the reader in, by using suspense and tension. We have worked as a table, to write a slow write, containing some interesting targets. We worked as hard as a fish trying to escape a shark to keep the reader wondering what will happen next. We have also been writing up our hot write about palm oil, and because our writing was so neat, almost everyone earned the bronze pen licence and is now heading for silver.

Maths
In maths this week, we have been working on a hot task and a cold task and we did pretty well. Most of us got at least half marks on the hot task and got onto the extension task. In our cold task it was tough but we managed to get through the percentages mayhem.

Topic
In topic this week, we have been learning about negative space ( which is the area surrounding and object.) We have also been doing judgement and reincarnation in RE lessons. We have been finding different quotes and trying to see if they fit into judgement or reincarnation, we cannot wait for the next lesson.

Happy Half Term

English
This week in English has not been any ordinary week……. we have had an amazing and improving assessment week! Lots of us have improved by over 10 marks and even reached greater depth already -in February! We have enjoyed practising and learning what we need to improve on, and are getting ready for SATs which will be here as quick as a flash. We cannot wait to get back to learning new things, but we will certainly miss learning which areas we need to improve on.

Maths
In maths this week we have been doing our trusty tests again. Our recent lessons have helped us to score more marks, and almost everyone in the class has improved. We (as you know) love maths, and to have a week of maths papers is extremely generous of Miss Footitt. We cannot wait to get back to our ordinary lessons, but we will greatly miss our tests.

ICT
This week we have been talking about internet safety. The theme this year was permission and consent which we then had the opportunity to complete quizzes on.

Maths
This week in maths, we have been working on converting decimals into fractions. Its been tough for some people because they haven't worked on this stuff before but for some that have not it was not as challenging.

English
This week in English we have completed our hot tasks and really enjoyed it. We were writing a newspaper report about an animal that we made up and ‘discovered’!

Topic
In topic we have finished our microorganism/bread experiment. We concluded that the lightest and warmest areas in our classroom were the places where you got more mould.
