What we learnt about this week
This week in English, we have started writing explanation texts about our inventions.
In Maths, we completed our assessment tasks and began the initial stages of a new group project.
In Science, we completed our assessment.
In PSHE, we learned about tolerance.
In Humanities we have continued our historical study of the 1960s by exploring popular music and technology. We have advertised new music and inventions.
What we plan for next week
Next week in English, we will prepare, practise and improve a spoken presentation or performance for our invention sales pitch.
In Maths, we will be starting to organise a group project to set up a ‘theme park’. This will give opportunities for design, area work, profit and loss work and presentation skills. This project will take at least two weeks to complete.
In Science, we will be discussing the answers to the assessments and continue with the topic on reproduction.
Next week in PSHE, we will create a final project for corridor display boards on global citizen.
In Humanities we will recreate art work in the style of Andy Warhol.
