Maths

In maths today we are consolidating all the learning we have done on angles. We are using our knowledge of opposite angles, angles around a point, angles in a triangle and angles across parallel lines. The children were only allowed to measure 3 angles and had to calculate the others. I am so impressed with the mathematical discussions going on. 

English

This week in English we have had a stand alone topic day. This day gives us the opportunity to showcase everything that we have learnt so far this year. We began by looking at the features of a mystery story such as the setting, suspects and a victim, then we were given a brown envelope with pieces of evidence found at the crime scene. We had to use the evidence to plan and write about a mystery that had taken place. This was a really fun lesson and we came up with some wild mysteries!

 

We are journalists! This week we have spent the week researching storm Arwen and interviewing eye witnesses. Today we have produced our own news reports and they are fantastic!

 

Today we celebrated World Book Day in school. We each came to school dressed as one of our favourite book characters. We went to a class in KS1 and shared stories with the younger children before coming back to class and completing some fun activities. We followed a step by step video to make an origami bookmark which we really enjoyed. 

Science

This year we have been learning a great deal in science. We have had lots of hands on experience and have enjoyed our learning. Below are some pictures of what we have been up too.

 

Today we went on a visit to Blackpool Zoo. As part of our Science topic, we have been learning about adaptation. It was great to see some of the animals and how they have adapted over time. 

Foundation Subjects

Some very kind volunteers from the RNLI came to speak to us today about water safety and the work that they do. We were all given a booklet that we were able to take home to share with our families to ensure we all keep safe in and around water. 

 

We have really enjoyed our art lessons this year and developing skills previously learnt. We have had the opportunity to sketch, collage, paint and use oil pastels too. Below are some pictures of the amazing artwork that we have created. 

Computing

This year in computing we have been looking particularly at data and vectoring with 2d and 3d shapes. We have really enjoyed learning new skills and using software that we have not used before. 

RE

“We have far more in common with each other than that which divides us”. This week every child in school has been thinking about this quote and what it means to them. Thinking specifically about equality and diversity. The children have created some fantastic pieces of artwork independently to show what the quote means to them. The teachers of Frenchwood are so proud of some of the conversations that have been had in school as well as the amazing artwork produced.
