In English we have continued to base our learning around The Wolves in the Wall. The children have been looking at how the story is structured and the different literary devices that Neil Gaiman employs in the story. The children then began to plan their own versions of the stories - we had great fun coming up with alliterative suggestions for what could be the 'problem' in our stories. We had 'Pythons in the pipes,' 'Hippos in the Hot Tub,' and 'Bears in the basement' to name but a few.
In shared reading we stuck with the theme of Neil Gaiman books as we based our learning around the opening chapter of Coraline. The children looked at answering questions based on the text, focusing in particular at using evidence to support their answers.
In maths the children have been working on comparing fractions, decimals and percentages. As the week progressed the children began to use and apply their previous learning to help them find percentages of whole numbers.
In science the children continued to investigate circuits and how individual components can impact on a circuit.
In DT the children looked at their market research and begun to draw conclusions from it. We then looked at the materials the children has brought in and discussed their properties.
In history we had our final lesson of our Iron Age topic where we learnt about the mysterious world of the druids.
