What we did last half term
Our English focus was the short film ‘The Lighthouse’. We watched short clips and did some beautiful emotive writing about the Lighthouse Keeper.
We learnt a lot about the Ancient Egyptians in our topic. We made canopic jars, learnt how to write using hieroglyphics, and discovered many interesting facts. We even learnt about the mummification process……… it was a bit gruesome but we loved it!
In maths we all worked really hard on our time telling skills. We did lots of work on fractions, including equivalent fractions, mixed number fractions and adding fractions with different denominators.
In science we learnt how different materials bounce. We conducted an experiment outside using different balls. Before we did this we discussed what would make a fair test.
Most of Blue 2 recently attended the residential visit to Chasewater. We had so much fun and we are really proud of them all and what they have achieved.
What we are doing this half term / Reminders
Our topic will be ‘World Cities’.
In Maths we will be learning about different units of measurement.
Our English focus will be recounts and newspaper reports. We will be basing these around the short film, ‘The Lighthouse’.
