Learning for the Head, Heart and Hand

Friday Reflection

Friday Reflection by Yasmina and Henry


Hi Yaz and Henry here! This week in maths, we have been subtracting fractions from whole numbers, converting between improper fractions and mixed numbers, simplifying fractions and finding fractions of a set of objects.

Mrs Kwouk challenged some of us with some really tricky problems which we had to work together to solve.

Throughout the week, we have learned how to use apostrophes correctly and did a test today to show off how much we know. We also learned how to punctuate speech correctly. We have been doing some extra music lessons this week and have learned about pulse, rhythm and pitch. Next week, we will be learning about mountains and volcanoes in geography which we are really looking forward to.

This week in maths it has been challenging but we persevered and can now find equivalent fractions and we have started to be able to convert improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa. In English, we wrote information booklets about refugees. The highlight of our week was making torches. We already knew how to make circuits from our science learning in term 4 and we were amazed that we could use this knowledge to make working torches! In PE, we have continued to enjoy athletics, rounders and badminton.

Hi it is Bethan and Gae , with a little update about what we have been up to this week. We have enjoyed PE this week - badminton, rounders and athletics. We have been learning about equivalent fractions in maths which has been easy peasy! ha ha! In English we made posters about not spreading rumours and also we have done some research about week we are going to write a report about them and use lots of facts. 

Have a good weekend and have fun! Enjoy your bank holidays!
