Happy New Year everyone!

We have started back and already got stuck straight  into our learning.

Numeracy

In Numeracy we were working out the volume of cuboids. We used basic algebra to create the formula Volume = Height X Base X Depth. Today we applied this to problem solving.

Literacy

This week, we have started our new topic on persuasive writing. We began with adverts. Today we have looked at passive voice compared to active voice sentences.

Topic

In Science, we started to design our toy adverts which will use an electrical circuit to make our advert more effective. This week, we looked at resistance and thought about how this might be used within our circuit. In P.E. we did lots of highly active games which helped us to understand the effects of exercise upon our bodies and to learn about what is actually taking place.
