In English this week, we started our shared writing project. We used various literary tools such as personification, alliteration, and pathetic fallacy to make our writing more engaging and descriptive. We also focused on perfecting our joined handwriting and accurate punctuation. I'm very proud of all the hard work and effort you have put in this week. I am looking forward to reading your finished pieces next week!
In Maths this week, we continued our learning about fractions, decimals, and percentages. We worked hard to understand how to convert between these different types of numbers, using a variety of methods and techniques to help us. We then put our knowledge to the test by working in teams to complete an 'End of Unit Check'. The discussions we had during this task were fantastic, with everyone contributing their ideas and opinions to help us solve the problems.
In computing, we put the finishing touches on our digital portraits of King Charles III and began our new project for this term. Our project involves creating a video about the importance of the Amazon rainforest, and we spent time researching and gathering interesting facts using the internet and research books. It was great to see everyone engaged and working collaboratively.
In Geography, we completed our second lesson. We started by sharing our experiences of walking through a forest in the UK, which was very interesting. After that, we examined graphs to find out what it was like in the Amazon rainforest. We looked at graphs about precipitation, temperature and levels of sunshine. We concluded that it is very hot and very wet there. Finally, we compared these to the same information about Crewe. The differences were fascinating.
During this week's RE lesson, we recapped our knowledge about the 5 pillars of Islam and used this knowledge to create an information booklet on how the 5 pillars help promote umma. The students worked hard to showcase their understanding of this important topic and created an informative booklet that reflected their creativity and effort. We are proud of their work and excited to continue exploring different aspects of religion and spirituality in the coming weeks.
Yesterday, in French, we continued learning about different modes of transport. We practiced vocabulary related to different types of vehicles.
Finally, we rounded off the week with Big Art. In Big Art, we added the finishing touches to our Amazon-inspired leaves and used glue and tissue paper to add texture.
I hope you have a fabulous weekend,
