Higher Level Teaching Assistant
Our topic this term is ‘Urban Metropolis’. During this topic, we will be learning all about London. We will start by learning about The Great Fire of London where we will look at the history of the event as well as creating our own artwork inspired by our topic. In addition, we will create our own food inspired by The Great Fire of London and will make our own houses for our DT project.
Our 'Stunning Start' this term will focus on Drama. Outside, we will reenact what life may have been like for the townspeople at the time of The Great Fire of London, we will seek refuge from a kind neighbour (Mrs Mitchell) who will offer us and show us how to make traditional cakes.
Our History topic lends itself well to Science where we will look at the uses of everyday materials and the difference in their properties. By the end of the topic, we will be able to understand how the houses caught fire so quickly and how the fire spread using our understanding of the materials that the houses were made from.
Our Learning this week
(Week Ending 7/6/19)
This week, we continued our topic 'Urban Metropolis'. We started the week by gathering adjectives to describe Rosie Revere by using a thesaurus, we then used these new words to write a character description for Rosie Revere.
This week in Maths, we worked on fractions. We looked at finding fractions of a set of objects and then worked out how to calculate fractions of amounts.
In Science, we investigated materials to understand absorbency and waterproof materials. First we predicted what materials would be waterproof and then we experimented using different materials to see if they absorbed water. Finally, we wrote up our results to see if our predictions were correct.
On Thursday, Kits on Coaching took Class 2 for a PE session. The class took part in a variety of ball based activities to improve their ball control skills.
There are spellings and Maths homework this week, this will be due in next Friday.
Have a lovely weekend.
