Summer Term 1 Week 4
This week the children have been really busy fitting everything in to a shorter week.
In English they spent time finalising their game products and their pitches in their unit ‘Pitch It’. Despite some last minute amendments, they were able to present confidently to a panel of special visitors from the world of toy manufacturing. We and the visitors were extremely impressed with the items that the groups have developed. They commented on how unique they were and how viable they were, saying that they could see all of them selling well on their toy shelves. They were also impressed by the research and testing that they were able to talk about. We can definitely say that they children enjoyed this unit and learned a lot about developing a product from an initial idea to point of sale.
In Maths, the children have revisited division with remainders, developing their skills in written methods. They then applied this to solving problems. They will consolidate this through their homework this weekend.
On Friday we combined ICT and Science when the children carried out research in to the life cycle of animals, following their work on the life cycle of plants. They then used their results to create a PowerPoint presentation which gave information of their chosen animal and a life cycle diagram which they created from images and shapes on PP.
Thursday was the Feast of Ascension and along with attending a special mass, we looked at this event in RE by discussing what happened and thinking about what the disciples may have felt when they lost Jesus for a second time and the responsibility they were given. The children put these thoughts in to writing prayers from the viewpoint of a disciple at this time.
We hope you have a lovely weekend.
