We have had a fantastic first week back and we are all so proud of how hard the children have been working.
In Literacy this week we have been continuing to read ‘Pig Heart Boy’. The children have been left on tenterhooks each time we read a new chapter and have been able to make thoughtful predictions. This week we have written two diary entries, a description of the high-tech hospital and used our comprehension skills to fully understand the text.
Maths this week has all been based around place value. We have been reading and writing numbers into the millions, rounding to the nearest 100, 100 and 1000 and then extended ourselves by rounding to 1 and 2 decimal places.
Computing was very exciting this week. We looking into the history of the Internet! The children used the Chromebooks to research the history of the Internet and created brilliant timelines.
The Circulatory System was our Science focus this week. We looked at the job of the heart and how the blood flowed around our bodies through the arteries, veins, capillaries and blood vessels. We are all very excited about the upcoming heart dissection in Science!
