We have been working very hard in Gibraltar class this month and have completed a wide range of learning tasks and activities. We hope that you enjoy looking at some of our amazing work.
In English, we have spent time learning about stories that include flashbacks. We have been watching and analysing 'The Piano' by Aidan Gibbs. We spent time learning how to use a range of clause structures and thought about how to retell the story using cohesive devices, expanded noun phrases and a range of higher level punctuation. We also looked at how the characters felt and wrote some short diary extracts. Finally we used the story to inspire some flashback stories of our own.
In maths we have been learning about fractions, decimals and percentages. We have been learning how to simplify, add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions. We then used these skills to solve a range of problems. We have also been learning how to calculate the equivalents for decimals, percentages and fractions.
This half term in Science we have been learning about electricity. We started by thinking about what life would be like if it had never been invented. Then, we researched some innovators in the science of electricity. Following this we learnt how to use symbols to create circuit diagrams. Last lesson we planned an investigation and made a predication, we are looking forward to finding out if we are correct.
In our R.E lessons, we have been learning about the Messiah. We spent time studying different prophecies and identifying what we can learn from these. We then discussed how Christians celebrate the birth of the Messiah both drawing and writing our answers.
In History we have been learning about The Ancient Kingdom of Benin. We started by looking at the geography of the kingdom and where it was in modern day Nigeria. Then we researched and looked at a range of sources to investigate what we could find out through them.
We also learned about how the kingdom developed and how the different dynasty's came to rule. We made a story board about Eweka to help us remember the facts.
