Term 2

Week 3

 

We have had such a busy week; Highlight of the week - Road Safety Talk from Gist Lorries.  Finding out amazing facts about the lorries, like single lorry can weigh up to 44 tonnes when fully loaded.  That would be the same weight as 76 cows - wow!  Children were allowed to climb into the driver's cab, and even heard the horn.... it was really loud!

For Literacy this week, the children were studying features of persuasive writing.  Using superlative adjectives and comparing facts with fiction.  For Maths, we were comparing information given in pie charts and bar graphs.  The children carried out a survey on each other to see how many children liked different kinds of fruits.  This information was collated and then represented by drawing our own graphs.

In Science, the children were investigating materials which would make good electrical insulators and those which are conductors.  For Geography/History - the children were discovering how a worldwide food transporting industry began as a small plant business in Spalding and developed into importing bananas from the Windward Islands in the Caribbean to the U.K. in 1953.  Children plotted the journey the ships make.

On Friday, it was a non-uniform day and the children all made eye-patches to raise money for Children in Need.

For Maths, the children have been using their understanding of fractions to create and interpret pie charts.  Carrying out a class survey about eating vegetables and fruit and comparing with a National Survey in the U.K.  We found out that we need to eat more vegetables and fruit a day to help keep a healthy balanced lifestyle.
For Literacy this week, the children enjoyed a workshop about Shakespeare's plays.  Following this, the children worked on developing their acting skills and then writing their own plays based around Romeo and Juliet and acting these out.
