The interaction between body systems helps us to keep healthy and survive
The children will be inquiring into:
How the body systems work (function)
Interdependence and independence between body systems (connection)
Impact of lifestyle choices on the body systems (responsibility)
The children have chosen a body system to inquire into. They will start their research next week. Year 3 are also learning with Mr Lowe; they are using technology to enhance their understanding of body systems.
Fractions are ways of representing parts of a whole
Lines of Inquiry
- The equal nature of fractions
- Equivalent fractions
- Fractional Patterns
The children are exploring what a fraction is and how we compare and order fractions (form).
They are also investigating how we use fractions in our lives and how fractions are related to division (connection).
The children are reading with a question in mind and selecting key vocabulary as
well as paraphrasing their findings.
Writing to Describe
The children are writing reports to show their understanding of the
body systems. They are beginning to use technical language and are
benefiting from the additional support of Ms Jeves.
Please check with your child to see if they have received a Golden Book award.
Mathletics passwords are in your child’s diary. The children should check their accounts regularly and complete any assigned tasks. If they have completed all tasks then they can enjoy LIVE mathletics.
