What we've been doing

 In English we have been looking at shape poems and picking out effective language and discussing why it is effective. We have watched the short film 'The Rocketeer' and have been coming up with different sentence types about The Rocketeer to include in our own shape poems. We have been looking at conjunctions, onomatopoeia, similes and adjectives to include.

In Maths, we have been working on division. We are now confident with how to divide a 2-digit number by a 1 digit number using equipment and equal groups. We are now moving on to looking at dividing 2 digit and 3 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers using the bus stop method.

In Mission we have we have been researching lots about technology and how it has changed over time. We have created timelines, posters and evaluated different pieces of technology.

In PSHE we have been discussing what different challenges people face and how we can help and understand these.

In PE we have been practising our dribbling skills in football and have been applying these in small 5 a side games.


I have been so impressed by our homework so far and can't wait to see much more over the next few weeks!
