A week in Palmer 

 

English


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.

 

Maths

 

Our current times table champion is: Lexie

 

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.

 

Science 

 

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.

 

Geography

 

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.

 

 

Computing

 

We are learning about photo editing. 

 

R.E

 

Our topic this half term is Islam.

 

P.E.

 

The children are going swimming in two groups. They then have a separate PE session with FUNDA.

 

History

 

We are focusing on Ancient Egypt this half term.
