This week in maths we have been looking at rounding numbers which they seem to have enjoyed. Maybe they can share this new skill with you at hone?
Year 4 have been rounding three digit numbers to the nearest 10
Year 5 have been rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000.
In science we have been looking at reproduction in plants and are investigating if we can clone a potato! All of our potatoes are lined up on the windowsill ready for action and over the coming weeks the children will be monitoring their progress. Watch this space!
We have begun looking at the Amazon in more detail and how vast the Amazon river is. We have been practicing our mapping skills, looking in more detail at the South American continent and which countries the Amazon rainforest actually covers.
Our artist for this term is Henry Rousseau and we have been looking in class at how he created his rainforest artwork even though he never visited nor did he have access to the internet in his day! Our observational drawing skills of leaves and plants have begun.
Don't forget spellings are uploaded to Spelling Shed for practice at home and TT Rockstars is a great programme to help children become quicker at their times tables too! We are currently assessing the children's reading ages and their reading scheme books will be allocated in due course.
Keep up the great work Panthers!
Have a great weekend.
