Creative Curriculum

In topic we have been looking at forces and magnetism. We have tested lots of different objects in our classroom to see if they are magnetic, and we have even made Origami boats that will sail on water with a magnet and a paperclip!

English

We are currently reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We have even written menus for the Iron Man! We used alliteration, adjectives and adverbs to make our description of the foods detailed and eye catching. Would you like to try some Iron Ice-Cream with Gold Sprinkles?

Maths

Maths this term is focused on Multiplication and Division. We have been using resources to represent these, and applying our skills to Problem Solving questions. These can be tricky sometimes, but we are trying to be Aspirational Ants and not give up!

In Topic Maths we are looking at data! We have used our results from our experiments in topic to create graphs and charts. We have also used tallying to help us gather data on people’s eye colour, shoe size and favourite animals (If you are wondering- Foxes came out on top!)

Computing

In computing this term we are using Lego WeDo to learn how to programme. We have learnt that an algorithm is like a set of instructions that a computer follows.

French

In French we have been learning the names of body parts! We sung ‘Tête, épaules,

genoux et pieds’ which is ‘Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Feet’ in French. It’s a really tricky song to sing, but we did quite well! We also labelled each other with post-its!
