There is also some optional SATs homework – an arithmetic test and a reading test – that you could complete if it would make you feel more prepared for the tests.
Design Technology is an enjoyable part of our topic lessons. Following the trip to Unipart, the children have been designing and building their own motorised car prototypes.
Below you will see them at different stages of the project, including designing, manufacturing and testing.
The children have been responsible for every aspect of the task. They have managed themselves, decided roles for each other, used saws and glue guns and generally worked well as teams to create some great, if not yet finished, prototypes.
This week we have been learning how to solve scaling and ratio problems in maths. We have been asking ourselves: What do I notice? What do I know? What can I use? This helps us to find a way to start solving the problem and choose an appropriate strategy.
We have been studying the novel Wolf Bother by Michelle Paver. This week we have been planning a new ending to the story. To do this we planned our journey on the Wolf Brother map and then added interesting vocabulary and sentence starters to our plan.
