Our lessons in maths this week have focused on fractions. Children have looked at unit and non-unit fractions: drawing fractions as visual representations, putting them on a number line correctly, ordering, comparing and finding equivalents.
In English we have continued to explore different sentence structures to help develop our story writing skills. The children have planned their narrative and we have written the opening paragraph.

Our lessons in maths this week have continued to focus on decimal numbers. Children have applied their understanding of place value to help them solve a range of routine and non-routine problems.
In English we have been exploring different sentence structures to help develop our story writing skills. Next week children will begin applying these new skills through more extended pieces of writing.
Today in class we all became scientists as part of our first STEM day of the year. We spent the day looking at the filtration of water before children worked in groups to design and make their own water filtration system using a range of materials. They then proceeded to filter some really muddy water with some very successful results. We will add some photos to the blog early next week.
This week, Joseph Hatter (5E) received the golden key award for improving his work rate and effort in lessons. Joe Bennett (5E) has his writing displayed on the showstoppers wall.
