Next weeks Learning:
English: Arthur and The Golden Rope – Diary entries Maths: Fractions- finding unit and non-unit fractions Science: Forces and Magnets- friction
Captain Tom 100
As today was Captain Tom’s birthday we decided to learn more about him and all the money that he raised for wonderful NHS. As a class, we took part in the hundred challenges we created tally charts looking at 100 different colour counters and then we had a challenge amongst the class to create a line of £100 coins.
In science this week we looked at friction. We carried out an investigation to see what surfaces created the most friction. We used a ramp covered with different services investigated investigated which one caused the most friction for a car to travel down. We then concluded to see whether our predictions were correct and which surface created the most friction.
In maths this week We have looked at converting between decimals and fractions, finding equivalent fractions and finding unit and non-unit fractions. We use number lines to help us and are base 10 manipulatives. We then used are given roles in collaborative group work to calculate word problems involving fractions.
In PE this week we put our coordination skills to the test in a competitive game of bench ball. The children showed great collaboration and teamwork and impressed me with their coordination.
