We have started a new unit on Fractions, sharing our knowledge from previous years and reminding ourselves how to find equivalent fractions and learning how to simplify them.
We have started to write a biography of Isambard Kingdom Brunel who was a civil engineer in the 19th Century. We are writing it as a shared and guided writing piece. The children will then write a biography of their own on another eminent Victorian.
We wrote a script for the 'Learning Lab' - a ficticious TV station who specialises in learning videos. In pairs, the children presented them to the rest of the class. We have some talent!
We have been learning about the British Empire, locating the countries on a World map and finding the co-ordinates of the modern-day countries. We also calculated the time in each country when it is 12 noon in London.
