What we learnt about this week
This week in English, we prepared, practised and improved a spoken presentation or performance for our invention sales pitch.
In Maths, we started 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 discussed the answers to the assessments and continue with the topic on reproduction.
This week in PSHE, we created a final project on global citizen.
What we plan for next week
Next week in English, we will to write narratives with our new text, Wolf Brother. Please remember to bring it to lessons.
In Maths, we will continue to work on our group project. This will ultimately lead to a presentation of all profit and loss, design and area, and advertising and costing work.
In Science, we will be starting a new topic, ‘simple chemical reactions’.
Next week in PSHE, we will learn to understand about the nature of change.
Homework goes home on a Thursday and should be returned by the following Tuesday.
English: Read chapters 1-4 of Wolf brother and make notes
Maths: Work on the park designs, considering the area, and associated costs, of all rides / amenities.
Science: to complete a worksheet.
