Lundy Autumn Term 2022

23/9/22 Lundy Class

In Maths we have been using powers of ten to compare different measures.

In English we have been expanding noun phrases using relative and prepositional clauses. Also, we have been learning about different tenses and verb forms to make our writing more interesting.

Our science has been about solubility and insolubility. We have carried out an investigation to learn about salt and sugar solutions and how we know they are saturated.

We have been thinking about ‘Caring and Sharing’ in preparation for our Harvest Festival.

16/9/22    

We have had a super week - working hard and getting into a routine.

In maths we have focused on number. We have been thinking about place value with decimal numbers and numbers up to 10,000,000.  We have been improving our rounding skills using our knowledge of place value.

English has been learning our new text ‘Weslandia’ – the children have really enjoyed the character in the story, who creates his own civilisation.

In science we have been re-visiting properties of materials, ready to build on with our new learning.

Topic has been comparing maps of Europe in 1914, 1920 and the present day.  We have also written our own definitions of what an empire is.

We have had a great first week back!  The children have settled well, and enjoyed being back together. 

We have been thinking and learning about how we learn; we have learnt a lot of new vocabulary to help us describe this. 

We have begun our art learning by drawing a self-portrait and we have started our French unit which is all about describing ourselves and animals.
