In Coastguards this week, we have been looking at measuring accurately in centimeters and meters. We have been thinking about what are the appropriate units of measurement to use. We have applied our learning to solve problems involving ordering and comparing length.
In English we have been thinking about Traction Man as a toy and as a hero. Traction Man is the main character from our class text ‘Traction Man is Here’ by Mini Grey. We discussed our favourite toys and described them on Monday. We then moved on to think about what it means to be a hero and the heroes in our lives. The children ended the week writing some touching descriptions of their heroes and a book review of ‘Traction Man is Here’ which all the children loved.
In topic we have been thinking about where animals like to live and why. We used what we had learned to think about dinosaur habitats in the past.
Next week will be assessment week. It is of vital importance that the children come to school on time and well rested to perform to the best of their ability. During the afternoons we will be completing our learning about Islam and continuing with our dinosaur research on food chains and habitats in order to write a detailed non-chronological report in the final week.
Have a lovely weekend.
