The week began with a competitive introduction to maths. The children worked in pairs to stack as many cups as they could. Having been set the target of 7 (Mr Moore’s high score) the children were eager to achieve a high score. The class then used this data to learn about the mean score before solving a range of reasoning problems with this skill.
In English this week, Pentire class have started a new unit of writing, focusing on creating their own endings to a new story we have been learning. Dialogue has been a particular focus so we had a go at writing our own conversations between the characters and role playing our conversations.
Today, we continued with our science unit of ‘light’, investigating refraction. Our class enjoyed setting up experiments to see what happens when light is refracted. The children observed what happens when light travels through transparent objects and were amazed at how this distorted images. We completed two investigations and recorded our observations. A super effort this week from everyone in Pentire!
