Topic: we have been wrapping up our learning about the Polar Regions this week. We worked in groups to research, plan and create a tent; this tent had to endure rigorous testing, including wind, polar bear attacks and blizzards! Children then evaluated their tents using scientific vocabulary. After, children reflected on what they have learnt this term and completed an independent project which they showcased to the class.
Maths: we have been learning how to solve problems using long division this week and children have massively persevered! We continued to break down some two digit numbers into their factors in order to solve with two small steps, but used the long written method for numbers that could not be broken down.
RE: Children learnt about how different religions celebrate the coming of age and used this knowledge to think about how they will celebrate moving into adulthood.
Outdoor PE: children applied athletic movement in a competitive environment and thought about how to work well in a team.
