We look forward to seeing you there!
This week in our English sessions we wrote our own Roman invasion inspired stories. We used our imaginations as well as information we learnt in History to help us. Next week we will be learning about imperative verbs and instructions. If you want to do some work at home around imperative verbs perhaps you could look at some recipes and see if you can pick out the imperative verbs (bossy verbs) and follow the instructions to bake something delicious!
In Maths this week we consolidated our learning on methods we could use to support Multiplication and began looking at Division, we looked at the bus stop method to help us work out division sums. Click here to find out more about the bus stop method. We will continue learning about Division next week.
During our science lesson this week, we looked at what happened to our Tooth Decay Investigation, we noticed the differences and recorded our results. It was very interesting to see how the milk helped the egg shell become slightly stronger but the coke left a brown, sticky residue and made the egg shell feel more brittle. We realised the impact different types of liquids can have on our own teeth and it made us think about the dangers of tooth decay.
In our History lesson this week, we continued to learn about what the Romans did for us and their legacy. Then we wrote a letter thanking the Romans for the positive things they did. Discuss with your child what the Romans did for us.
Finally, the children thoroughly enjoyed going to Lee Valley on Wednesday/Thursday. It was a lot of fun and it was a great learning experience. The guides were impressed with our children's knowledge of plants and flowers. So well done to the children, it was a fantastic chance to see all the learning they did on plants last year come in handy.
