Weekly Update - 18.10.19

Miss Asker and Mrs Hatch - 18 Oct 2019

This week in Maths the children have been focusing on mental strategies for adding and subtracting using known number facts and counting on. Their first lot of MyMaths homework was set on Wednesday. The children will have their log in details in their reading records and this has to be completed by Monday.

In English we looked at poems by Christina Rossetti and used these to write our own wind inspired poem. The children also drafted some fabulous Harvest Poems with Mrs Marley on Wednesday and some of these will be read out in our Harvest Festival next Thursday.

In Computing the children thought about what made them a responsible online citizen. The children thought about cyberbullying, plagiarism and giving out information online. We shared our ideas and have presented them in a table below to help you at home too. Our children are growing up immersed in technology and it is vital that they know how to stay safe and how to be responsible.

In Topic the children learnt about the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. They were given a place that lies between the tropics and compared the weather that day with the weather in West Tanfield. We then thought about where we would like to live and why.

As we approach the last week of this half-term can we just remind parents and children that ALL children should be reading five times a week at home. We would be grateful if parents could ensure that this was recorded into their reading records.

In science we thought about simple mechanisms such as gears, levers and pulleys.  We investigated and made some of our own mechanisms.
