This week, we celebrated our first famous figures of this academic year. Our famous figures for this term are Paralympians Kadeena Cox, Ellie Simmonds, Sarah Storey and Michael Churn. Throughout the week, we learnt about these inspirational athletes and their achievements, watched lots of videos of the Paralympians taking part in their sport and we played Boccia as well!

Before starting our computing, we recapped E-Safety and how to be safe online. We discussed what to do when we see inappropriate things on the internet, who we should and shouldn’t speak to online and how we should never share personal information about us online either.

In our PHSE jigsaw lessons, we have been investigating how we can improve our teamwork skills. We challenged ourselves to be build the biggest tower in our groups. We then discussed how this could have been better, and what important teamwork skills we used.

In Art, we have been learning about tones, tints and shades. Over the last few weeks we have practiced creating different shades and tones and sketching perspective drawings. We used all the skills we learnt to create our own perspective painting! 

In Science, we have been learning about gravity and how gravity objects have different weight and mass. We learnt that mass is how much matter something has and is measured in grams/kilograms whereas weight is the gravitational force of something and is measured in newtons. we have been investigating contact and non-contact forces. We have been looking at how friction slows moving objects, and conducted a fair test experiment to investigate this!

This week in Mathematics, we have been looking at numbers to 1,000,000! We have learnt about the value of each digit, how many tens, hundreds and thousands are in hundreds, thousands and ten thousands, and use place value charts, counters, part whole models and bar models to show how numbers can be partitioned. We challenge ourselves by creating multiple ways to partition a number!

In English, we have started to read the book ‘Bronze and Sunflower’. This week, we read chapter 1 and created images based on what we read. In these images, we included the characters Sunflower, Bronze, father and Gayu and the setting of the rural Chinese village of Damaidi. We planned and wrote setting descriptions of Damaidi.

Our new project this term is 'Dynamic Dynasties'. We will learn about the Chinese Dynasties through our History and Geography lessons. We will also read different books in English linked to Dynamic Dynasties. In History, we searched the definition of words that we will be coming across in these lessons.
