Weekly Update

Friday 8th January

Dear Parents, 

Firstly we wanted to express our gratitude and warm wishes for all of you in this current situation. This isn’t how any of us imagined starting the new term at all and we know that everyone is stretched to their limits. You are all doing a brilliant job and it’s been lovely to see the children so engaged already.

In English, we have been writing our imitation of Mrs Armitage on Wheels. Next week we are going to write our innovations of the story where we will change some aspects.

In Maths, we have been recapping our understanding of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Next week we will be solving word problems and using place value to understand and manipulate numbers.

In DT we looked at levers and sliders and made our own, next week we will be learning about linkages and create our own.

In Science we compared the uses of everyday materials around school and our homes. Next week we will be exploring how some materials can be used for more than one purpose as well as how different materials can be used for the same thing.

In History we learnt about John Dunlop, what he invented and why it was so important. Next week we will be learning about the inventor Mary Anderson.

In PSHE children have been celebrating and recognising their strengths and setting goals for this year. Next week we are exploring equality and diversity and how we respect it in relationships with others.
