We read a newspaper report based on a well known fairy tale, and after studying features of news reports, produced our own piece of work.
We have investigated spelling patterns: -fer, -ible, -able, as well as practicing spelling words on the Y5/6 list.
In Grammar, we have studied nouns, verbs, model verbs, adjectives, pronouns and conjunctions.
We have also worked to improve presentation of our written work.
Maths has mainly focussed on place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and 2-D and 3-D shape. We have also improved our reasoning and arithmetic skills. Many of our children have been teaching others by explaining their working out on the walls.
Through our georgraphy topic - North America - the children have become familiar with the counties which make up North America and have identified and described famous landmarks. They have researched the past, becoming familiar with Native Americans and their way of life, including the importance of the buffalo to their survival. In addition, children have learned how tornadoes are formed and know where they occure the most, known as Tornado Alley.
In R.E. we have looked at the Hindu religion and had in-depth discussions about creating and reincarnation.
