We have finished looking at ‘The Mousehole Cat’ by writing our own versions this week. We have moved onto examining different types of poetry, starting with Haiku poems. We learned that they should follow the structure of 5,7,5 for how many syllables there are on a line.



We have practiced mental methods for addition and subtraction including adding more than two numbers in a calculation using number bonds for reordering. We have applied this to finding the perimeter of a rectilinear shape.



Our topic is 'States of Matter'. We investigated the best location in the classroom to dry wet socks based on our knowledge of evaporation. We recorded our predictions and our Science ambassadors have recorded the results for us to discuss next week.





Our topic this term is 'Water Water Everywhere’



Our theme this half term is 'Water, Water Everywhere'. Our Geography focus is on rivers, so this week we looked at how rivers can cause flooding and the impact this has on local communities. We linked this to the Padiham floods in 2020.



Our unit this term is ‘Photo Editing’ this week we discussed the negative and positive reasons of retouching an image. We also experimented retouching an image using different retouching tools.  



This term we are learning about Islam.
