In Literacy we have been reading The Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson and studying the descriptions of setting and character, and coming up with our own theories and predictions.
We have combined our book study with our Greek Mythology topic and have created our own mythical islands. We have used our maths skills to create maps, work out the area, write directions and we have also learned about measuring to create our potion recipes.
We have also been learning about fractions in maths and are practising our times tables and division skills.
In PE we have had our specialist in on Tuesdays to teach us about gymnastics and we have had fun creating sequences using balances, jumps and rolls.
Mrs Walker takes us for STEM subjects on Monday mornings and we have been programming Microbits to simulate earthquakes and testing whether are K'Nex buildings are earthquake proof.
