5M and 5D Science Museum Trip Postponed

We are really sorry to inform you that the Science Museum have just contacted us this evening to let us know that they have had to close due to a health and safety risk in the Space Gallery.

We are working with the museum to rearrange the trip.

The children must still bring their packed lunch as the kitchen would not have accounted for the extra lunches.

We will let you know as soon as possible if the trip on Thursday for 5G and 5B will be going ahead.

Thank you for your understanding.

This Week’s Learning

This week in maths we have continued to study fractions. We have been adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominators as well as looking at equivalent fractions and trying to understand what this means. Additionally, we have started to look at fractions with different denominators – firstly by adding them – and this will continue into the next week.

This week in topic we have been focusing on writing a newspaper report. To begin with, we created a mock alien crash landing in the playground which the children really enjoyed exploring to find language for our reports. This was then the focus of our report and we subsequently used our information gathering to help plan our news reports. After this, we spent time writing our reports, thinking about all the features that we needed to include as well as the correct layout and presentation to adopt.
