Term 1 Highlights
In maths this term, we have covered place value and four operations. We have learnt how to read and write numbers up to 10,000,000 and can now order and compare numbers up to that value too. During our four operations topic, we have learnt column subtraction and addition, short and long multiplication and short division and we have completed reasoning questions involving these operations. In snappy maths, we have been focusing on improving our arithmetic skills, completing mixed arithmetic questions in order of difficulty. We have worked hard this term to develop our maths vocabulary to ensure we are using the correct words when talking about specific methods and calculations.
In the first two weeks of term, we read ‘The Island’ by Armin Greder. The main theme in this book is immigration. We wrote in role as the characters, writing a diary entry and a letter. Influenced by an illustration in the book, we studied expressionist art, looking in detail at Edvard Munch’s ‘scream’ painting. Based on this painting, we created charcoal drawings of our own faces portraying a powerful emotion from the book.
After reading ‘The Island’, we started reading ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’. This book has similar themes, as it is based around the story of two evacuees who leave London to live in a small seaside town in Devon. We used this book to create 3D box settings, which we used as a stimulus to write our final setting descriptions.
Our Enquiry question for the first two weeks of term, was: What makes us all the same? We compared our houses to the houses on ‘Dollar Street’. Dollar Street is a virtual street with pictures of houses from all over the word listed by income. We found similarities and differences between our houses and others around the world. We became Geographers, finding our own houses on google maps then creating technical drawings of them. Inspired by the book ‘Museum of me’ by Emma Lewis, we made our own ‘museum of me’ collages of our bedrooms using coloured paper, pencil and watercolour.
Our second Enquiry question was: How are lives saved? For this Enquiry, we were being Scientists. We thought about health, diet and the human body. For the ‘engage’, we made healthy alternatives to treats. We made spiced carrot muffins and date and dark chocolate tiffins. As Scientists, we then carried out an experiment to test the affect of exercise and diet on our heart rate. We also made a model of a pumping heart using a balloon, cups and plastic straws. For the challenge, we created a TED talk presenting an idea on how the school could become a healthier place.
