Blog 17/06/2016
by Charlotte and Tom
Welcome to this week's blog! We've been doing allsorts this week, including reading, writing, maths
and much more!
Literacy
We have been reading a book by Michael Morpurgo called 'Why the Whales came.' It is a fun-packed
adventure book. We are currently on Chapter 6 and have written a Poem and a KWL chart for
the book! We want to get to the end but there's never enough time in Literacy!
Mathematics
In Ms Luckwell's maths class we have been creating graphs for Euros 2016.
In Ms Irvines class we have been looking at area and perimiter for irregular shapes. We have also been
looking at estimations for different sums.
Science
We were continuing to look at adaptations in animals and now are looking at adaptations in prey and 
predators. Also we have been looking at food chains which we all find very interesting because we
 were creating our own food chains.
Topic
In Topic we have been looking at advantages and disadvantages of living by rivers.

Thanks for reading - hope to do more next week!
If you haven't brought in your River notes, remember them next week! Thanks.
Well done with the European countries map work and spelling test - some impressive results!

Welcome back to your last term in Primary School!

Have a Happy half term!

Half term homework - Please choose a river from anywhere around the world, or in the UK if you prefer, and research under these subheadings, ready to write a report in school in June.

  • Location in the world/length/importance/why it's famous
  • Natural features on the river
  • Manmade features eg a dam/reservoir
  • Cities on the river
  • How people use it
  • Animals that live in it
  • Any problems associated with it eg flooding

An Alfie test is also available on the website.

Maths 

In Ms Luckwell's we have been finishing and presenting our healthy food and drinks presentations. In Mrs Irvine's class we have been interpreting pie charts.We hope to do much more and are looking forwards to maths next half term.

Literacy

In Literacy we have been working on presuasive writing techniques. We have been writing persuasive letters of our choice and also have been writing arguments for Room 101 and voted for the most persuasive( Tom won with his argument about white van men).

Topic

In Topic we have been looking at river vocabulary and the course of a river. We have also been looking at the features of the River usk and what towns it flows through.

Science

In Science we have been looking at adaptations of camels and water skaters. We have also been making What am I? we could pick a animal of our choice and write down the adaptations and get our friends to guess the animal.

Hope you all have a nice half term and enjoy all the exciting things that you will be doing!!
