Maths – Ratio

Today we have been introduced to the concept of ratio.

We discussed that ratio is sharing and dividing a given amount. We used natural resources and cubes to show how we can share a given amounts of parts before moving on to simplifying and finding equivalent ratios.

What have you been learning in maths this week?

Literacy – Booklet

Today in Literacy we have been researching The Norman Invasion in 1066.

We had to research information about the invasion finding out key facts about people involved such as Harold Godwinson.

Once we were satisfied with our research we were able to create an information booklet with all our findings.

Do you know any facts about the Battle of Hastings?

Circuits

Today in science we have been learning about complete and incomplete circuits. We discussed how the electricity is transported through the wires and to a component.

We designed our own circuits using symbols and made predictions as to whether we thought they would work or not.

We then physically made our circuits.

Can you name all the components to create a simple circuit?

Debating

Today in Literacy we have been debating. Throughout the week we have been learning all the features of how to write and hold a debate. We decided on a motion and have been working hard hold and participate in a debate.

Our motion for the debate was: Should children start work at a younger age?

We set our classroom out like the House of Commons and held our debate. We had a for the motion team and an against the motion team.

How would you vote?

Excavating

Today in History we excavated a famous mound. It was called Sutton Hoo!

Did you know Sutton Hoo is a burial site for Anglo-Saxons?

During the excavation we had to carefully brush the soil off the artefacts to deduce what they might have been used for and who may have used them.

We found so many interesting artefacts during the excavation.

Do you know any Anglo-Saxon artefacts?

Anglo-Saxon Brooches

Today we made Anglo-Saxon brooches out of clay.

We started by moulding the clay into the desired shape of brooch we wanted before designing and creating.

We made decoration using left over clay which we intend to paint soon.

What kind of design would you put on a brooch?

Cooking – Honey and Oat cakes

On Friday we followed an Anglo-Saxon recipe.

We made a common dessert that the Anglo-Saxons would have eaten – honey and oat cakes. We used our chopping skills to dice soft apricots. We also had to use out maths skills to scale up the recipe to feed an army of Anglo-Saxon warriors!

What have you made this week?

Litetacy

During this term we have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons.

We have been reading a book called Anglo-Saxon boy. The book states that the main character Magnus disappeared out of history after the autumn of 1066.

Today we reenacted what may have happened to Magnus after The Battle of Hastings.

What do you think happened to Magnus after the autumn of 1066?

PSHE

Today in PSHE we were discussing the importance of having good manners and politeness.

We split into 2 groups and debated for and against whether a scenario showed good manners and explained why we had these opinions.

 

How do you show good manners and politeness?
