Week beginning 26th April 2021
The children have been having a really great time, learning more about Shackleton's Journey to the South Pole in English. They children were investigating emotive language and how it can be used by a writer to create feelings in the reader. The children ended up writing a powerful speech as Ernest Shackleton, to keep their morale up and follow his new plan. The result were wonderful.
In Maths the children have been exploring fractions, how to find equivalent fractions, improper fractions and mixed number fractions and converting them. They have work really hard, using diagrams to help their thinking before moving to the more abstract mathematical techniques of using only number.
in Geography the children have continued to investigate rivers and flooding. They have also looked at coastal features and looked at how erosion effects these features. they children produced some lovely detailed geographical drawings to illustrate the changes and physical features.
In PE the children have been getting to grips with Rugby and learning how to hold the rugby to throw and pass accurately, positioning and correct ways to score. It was a very intense and exhilarating session!
