There was also a visit from The Grinch... luckily he didn't make it into the classroom, as the children scared him away.

This week the children explored how shadows can be changed e.g angle of light or distance of light/object from the light source and wrote up their investigations.

In English this week, we have started reading 'Letters from the Lighthouse'. We have developed our reading skills by using information from the book to answer questions, create a missing person report and write a postcard home in role as the main character.

Have a look below for some excellent examples.

Monday 23rd November - Friday 27th November

This we in history we have been learning about how Manchester was affected during World War II. We carried out our own research and wrote fact files.

We then created art work that represented the Blitz...

In Science we have been looking at how light travels and how shadows are created.  The children had to prove that light travels in a straight line using a torch, mirrors and card.

Monday 16th November - Friday 20th November

This we in Maths we have continued to look at fractions.  We have revisited how to add and subtract fractions- including mixed numbers and order fractions.

For our learning in history, we have been finding out about World War II and exploring our BIG question: How did WW2 affect Britain?


It began with finding out - who? when? where? why?

We then learnt about the sacrifices that were made during WW2 and what life was like at home here in Britain.
Design & Technology - we have been practising our sewing skills ready to design and make our very own tote bags!
