This week, we have been comparing and ordering fractions and then we have added and subtracted fractions where denominators are not multiples of the same number.
Having completed our biographies of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, we have researched the life of Florence Nightingale. We have today written a biography of Florence as our 'hot task'. This week also, we finished our class reader, ' Street Child' by Berlie Doherty. We enjoyed it very much and our next task is to write an extra chapter for the book, explaining what happened to the sisters of the main character.
We have been researching different types of bridges and finding out about the forces of compression and tension.
Next week, in pairs, we will be designing a new bridge to cross the Thames.
