Falcon Class Weekly learning – Spring Term Week 5 / 6

Posted on February 22nd, 2017 by Falcon Class

It´s been a very intense week 5 (before Half Term)!! 🙂

In Maths, we´ve been solving additions and subtractions up to 7-digits through the column method and mental strategies. We commenced our Mastering activities for extra work.

In English, we made a great effort making predictions in fiction stories and writing in different genres. The special guests were the fronted adverbials, conjunctions, punctuation and exciting adjectives.

In History, the differences between rich and poor children during the Victorian period were specially mentioned.

In Science, we said goodbye to our experiments with prisms and torches (Light Unit) and we started the Eletricity Unit. We talked about a problem in a Lighthouse and how we could fix it.

On the other hand, we have started a very exciting week 6.

In Maths, we have started to learn about common multiples and common factors and we will carry on learning about how to solve short and long divisions.

In English, we have started to create suspense to our fiction stories (fantasy, crime, ghosts, science fiction, futuristic, historical stories…). We have included a starter activity for improving our writing skills. We carry on reading our fiction books (Matilda, The Wizard of Oz, The Mistery of Thomas Kempe and New Tales).

In History, we will finish the Unit about the Victorians. We will be exploring facts about The Royal Family and we will be able to observe and explore images from The Victoria and Albert Museum.

In Science, we will step up through circuits and their main components.
