Please could each child bring a small box to school. This will be used to take the clay houses safely home in before the Christmas holidays.
Please remember to make sure that your child is wearing removable outer-layers in this changeable weather. Some of our children are wearing full length thermal under-layers under their clothes. Although it is colder in the mornings it was 27 degrees during one PE lesson this week and so our children with multiple thermal layers on were having to remove them. It is much easier for the children to remove jackets and jumpers above their uniform and means that they do not miss any of their lessons.
SUNSHINE ACTION FUND RAISING
To help our students with the food parcels we need parent volunteers, approximately 30. These parents will be working with groups of students to help them make the food parcels this Friday. If you are interested please click here.
In Maths the children continued their problem solving through a sequence of lessons recommended by Professor Peter Sullivan. We have also been looking at what fractions are and how to find out what a fraction is.
In English and Information Literacy the students have been working with Ms Jeves to determine what is important within a text. We continued to look into the features of an explanation text. They will begin to build a class explanation text on the Digestive System with Ms Jeves in Information Literacy.
The children have been looking at this units comprehension strategy, determining importance, during their reading lessons.
The children enjoyed dressing up in 60s costume on Thursday.
The interaction between body systems helps us to keep healthy and survive.
- How the body systems work (function)
- Interdependence and independence between the body systems (connection)
- Impact of lifestyle choices on the body systems (responsibility)
Next week we will be continuing looking at the three body systems we have been focussing on in class, the respiratory, circularity and nervous systems. The children will look at:
What does each system do?
How does the system do its job?
What are the different parts of the system?
How do we look after each body system?
How is it linked to the other systems?
Fractions are ways of representing parts of a wholeWe will be inquiring into
- Fractions of shapes
- Fractions of amounts
- Making and comparing simple fractions
Next week we will be continuing the focus on fractions. The children will continue to use the skills they have developed to work through a series of challenges as well as continuing to develop their understanding of what a fraction is and what it can look like.
At home, you might want to have pizza one night this week and see what fractions you can see. What is equal to half of the pizza and how many fractions can you eat?
Mathletics passwords are in your child’s diary. Please make sure that an adult supports your child when working through the activities.
