January 2020

 

English

We started the term looking at biographies. We wrote our own biography on Isaac Newton-linking to our science topic on forces.

 

We have started to look at Goodnight Mister Tom which links with our topic. We have watched the film and written a film review based on the film. 

 

Maths

We started the term looking at reading and plotting co-ordinates in different quadrants. We have developed our understanding of time- revising the clock, looking at timetables and calculating start times, finish times and the duration of an event. We have spent some time looking at probability. We focused on the language of probability as well as looking at the probability scale and linking to fractions. We have also revised reflections and will continue to look at shape and movement.

 

We have continued with our CLIC challenges and are improving our scores each week.

 

Science

Our topic this term is forces all around. We started the term by making our own aeroplanes and predicting which place would fly the furthest. We made our investigations fair and looked at how we could be successful. We created graphs to show which planes went the furthest.

 

In our next investigation we will be testing how long it takes for a parachute to fall to the ground and how we can change the length of time.

 

 

R.E.

Our first topic this term was sources. Our big question was ' Are books enriching?'

 

We have read lots of bible stories and looked at how they are similar and different. We though about how these stories have been passed down and what messages they give us. We looked at how and when we use the bible and the importance of these stories in our lives today.

 

We planned our own Collective Worship linked to our topic-Sources.

 

 

Topic

Our topic this term is A Child's War.

 

We began our topic by putting ourselves into an evacuee's shoes. We made our own evacuation labels and thought about what places we were being evacuated to. We looked ta what an evacuee would have in their suitcase and what we could put in ours. We then set off on our train journey where we met new friends. Whilst on our journey, we made games to pass the time and asked lots of questions to get to know the other children.

 

Following on from this activity we thought about the questions that we had about our topic as well as what we wanted to learn about and how we could learn about these things.

 

Our next focus was rationing. We looked at which food were rationed and how a rationing book was used. We then did our own research into which foods were rationed. We were shocked to find out that clothes were rationed.

 

We spent time making our own gas mask boxes (we used lots of maths skills!) and spent the day as a WW2 child in school. We heard the siren and had to get under our tables quickly and sensibly. We recited our times tables like they would have during the war. We also used a range of sources to find out about what schools were like during WW2.

 

In our music session, we listened to a range of WW2 songs and though about elements that we liked and what they reminded us of. We will be learning some of these songs. 

 

We will also be looking at jobs and women, the Blitz and Anne Frank as well as organising our own VE party.

 

School Trip

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Cardiff Castle.

 

We had a tour of air raid shelters with an air raid warden. We then enjoyed a workshop where we learned about lots of important aspects of WW2 as well as some important dates. We got to try on gas masks and tried to put out fires like they would have during a bomb blast. To finish our day, we sung two songs made famous during WW2.

 

 

Welsh

We have looked at the past tense and 'gwyliau' holidays. We are planning a conversation where we discuss our past holidays with a partner.

 

Other Activities

 

  • Road Safety Quiz
  • Police Talk about Internet Safety and Cyber Bullying
  • We created our one page profiles
