It has been another busy week of learning in Lundy.
In English, we have planned and written our explanation text about our chosen rituals. The children have been very focused and engaged in this.
In maths we have been learning how the add and subtract fractions. In Y6 the children have also been learning about multiplying and dividing fractions.
In science we have planned group investigations to find out how different variables might affect the balloon rockets that we explored last week.
We have listened to a piece of music called The Little Train of the Caipira by Heitor Villa-Lobos. The children, without knowing the title, thought about the different sounds and melodies which they heard, and what pictures it created in their minds.

As usual we have had a busy week of learning. The visit on Tuesday by the History Workshop company was fantastic. The children learnt so much with hands on workshops. The visitors praised Lundy Class for their exceptional listening and learning skills. I was very proud of them.
In English, we have written our explanation text about birthdays, ready for next week when we will be each choosing an individual celebration/ritual to plan and write about – I think there will be lots of mummification explanations!
In maths we have been learning how to scale up and down, and applying these skills to various problems. Y6 have been revising fractions too, as well as rounding.
In science we have created balloon rockets and learnt about thrust and where air resistance would act on them. We have also thought about other science questions we could test out by making modifications to the balloon rockets.

We have made observations and sketches of Egyptian pots.
In science we have begun to understand and explore air resistance.
