This week in English we looked at some more police reports, from this we made a success criteria. Then we shared wrote and introduction for a police report as a class, after that we wrote our very own police report. We used time connectives, ISPACE, the 5 W's and the past tense. We are going to send our reports to Miss Cross-Gower's uncle, who is a police man, to see what he thinks of them.
In maths we have been learning how to multiply and divide by 10, 100, 1000 and 10000. We learnt that the decimal place doesn't move but the numbers do! We then learnt that we can use this knowledge to help us convert between mm, cm and m.
In Science we were given the question 'Does the length of wire affect components in a circuit?'
We wrote our prediction, equipment list and method and then we carried out our own experiments.
What do you think the results were?
During our English lessons we talked about how to use the past tense and connectives correctly, also we learnt what chronological order is and why it is important to know this. We then had a look at a police report and drew a story map of what had happened. We also talked about the 5 W's (who, what, where, when and why) and why they are important when writing a report.
In maths we have been focussing on place value: large numbers, ordering numbers, identifying place value and writing numbers.
In science this week we have been looking at electricity and circuits. We learnt how to draw circuits, using the correct symbols. Then we carried out an experiment to see what the relationship was between the number of cells and the brightness of the bulb.
