In English, we looked at persuasive writing. We were tasked with persuading Mr Roberts to improve the book corner using a range of persuasive techniques including rhetorical questions, rule of three and emotive language. Do you know how important reading is for children's education?
In maths, we continued to consolidate our learning throughout the year, applying a range of skills to solve problems in context. This included solving problems based on time and money using strategies such as addition, subtraction, fractions, decimals and using known facts.
In RE, we continued to discuss the importance of pentecost on the Christian church today. We explored what the bible teaches Christians about the birth of the church and discussed what it would mean to a Christian today to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
We continued to explore different states of matter, and linked our geography work, identifying the different stages of the water cycle. We created non-chronological reports about the water cycle, which led us to a new question ... what state of matter is a cloud? Is it a gas or a liquid? Well, we wanted to find out so we made a cloud in a jar. Turns out, clouds are tiny liquid particles that attach themselves to the dust particles in the air, it is only when enough form together to create enough water to form a rain drop that is starts precipitation.
