Happy Friday Everyone!
We hope you have all enjoyed your learning this week - you have certainly all worked very hard. Over the course of the week we have:
- Written our own rhyming poems based on The Sound Collector by Roger McGough - watch him reading it here: https://vimeo.com/20373107. Some of us found writing lines which rhymed challenging, but we all managed it in the end. See below for a few examples of our finished poems ready for display in class.
- Practised finding fractions of amounts such as 4/5 of 40, 7/8 of 288.
- Solved word problems using our new-found knowledge of circles such as how diameter = radius x 2. We also learnt about the number pi which is used to calculate the circumference and area of a circle.
- Begun looking at how verbs work in the present tense in French. Learning the French subject pronouns was very good reinforcement of our work on English pronouns which we did a couple of weeks ago.
- Investigated scientists who are also Christians and thought up questions we could ask them to explain how they can believe in both Science and God.
- Begun a new Scratch project creating a clock. We used our knowledge of flowcharts learnt last week to help calculate how to code this and matched the Scratch blocks to this in preparation for building the algorithm in Scratch next week.
So, we certainly have not had time to get bored at any point this week!
Congratulations go to Grace and Eddie who were mentioned in Mr File's Friday assembly this week, both for producing excellent Sound Collector poems. Great writing, both of you.
Have a super weekend everyone - at least the weather looks like it will be kinder to us than last week.
