Week beginning 30.10.17
The children have been writing stories this week based on the book 'Eye of the Wolf'. We have been focusing on using flashbacks and changing the tense appropriately. I have been encouraging the children to read through their work regularly and edit their work as they go. I have been really impressed with the quality of their writing and the use of description. We will be studying non-fiction texts next week.
This week we have been recapping the topics covered in Maths so far. I have been going over SAT-style questions and addressing any misconceptions. Next week we will move onto mental and written division. I know this is a topic many children find challenging so any work that can be done this weekend would be helpful to assist their learning.
We are studying inheritance and evolution in Science this half term. We will be looking at how genes are passed down from parents and where they are stored in the body, how adaptation can be advantageous and disadvantageous and the theory of evolution. We are lucky enough to have the assistance of Dr Price, a retired GP, who is a wealth of knowledge!
Next week in RE we will be studying Judaism. We will be studying the Jewish New Year, 'Rosh Hashanah'.
