Aliens have landed!
Friday 16th November | 17 comments
This week we have been exploring the genre of sci-fi. The children began by looking at the themes that would be found in a science fiction book/film. Following this, we created our own aliens and wrote some very detailed descriptions using powerful vocabulary. The children created some very interesting creatures and tested out there description by reading it to a peer. Their peer had to draw a picture of what they believed that alien looked like from the vocabulary used! This was rather successful, proving how intricate and detailed the descriptions were.
This week has been a tricky week in maths. We have been looking at common multiples of numbers and common factors. This proved quite tricky but in the end we got there! By the end of the week the children were tackling both reasoning and problem solving question with much more confidence.
In preparation for next week, I have added a video showing multiplication methods. It would be great if you could have a look this before next week!

This week we have started our new topic of Outer Space. The children were challenged with the task of exploring our solar system and producing a non-chronological report to showcase their findings. We have produced some really impressive reports and the discussion around class were fabulous!
Hope you have a lovely weekend!
