Leicester Class had an eventful December to end the year. Unfortunately, the bubble was forced to isolate at home for another two weeks resulting in trialing the new online learning using google classroom. However, we were still able to fit in a large amount of learning.
In English, we looked at non-chronological reports and discussed how we can organise our writing to make it easier to read. Consdering the fact that our audience would most likely be children, we wanted to provide them with knowledge whilst making our writing entertaining. We started by learning about Teachers before creating our own non-chronological reports about Pupils.
In maths, we were looking at solving problems using our understanding of place value and choosing the appropriate calculation. We then started to investigate the place value of decimal numbers, identifying that decimals are equivalent to fractions and vice versa.
In our Christ Church Curriculum Safari, we enjoyed our first Safari Week of the year. We used what we learned in Science (electrical circuits) to plan, design and build a fully functioning lighthouse. We also compared different musical compositions, trying to identify the different instruments used and the pitch, tempo and dynamics. We then considered how this would affect a person's mood and how each piece of music could be interpreted.
