In English this week, we have been looking at a new book called ‘Hodgeheg’. It is about Max the hedgehog who is determined to cross a busy road. Our first piece of writing has been a diary entry as if we were Max and we had tried to cross the road for the first time. We considered how Max would have felt and how this many look in a diary.
In Maths this week, we continued our new unit on length and perimeter. Our focus this week was using a ruler to measure in both centimetres and millimetres. Also using metre sticks to measure larger objects. We have been looking at the most suitable unit of measure to use when measuring different objects. We have also been working hard to justify our answers in order to prove our thinking.
Our enquiry question for this term is ‘Can anywhere be home?’
In Science this week, we learnt all about Marie Curie and how her work with x-rays impacted the scientific community and the world as a whole. We also learnt that she was the first woman ever to win a Nobel prize and also the first person to win two.
In Art, we started our new unit on Cubism. We looked at the cubism movement and discussed how much impact that movement had on art at the time. We watched this video to help us understand: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhB0U6OUPIM. We then had a go at replicating some of the Cubism art work.
In Geography, we learnt all about climate and weather. We looked at the weather in both Spain and England. We tried to plot on a graph the two different countries' average temperatures in 2022. We then wrote about how the climate was different and how they were similar.
In RE, we started a new unit all about ‘Love’. We thought about what the term ‘Love’ means. Then we thought about the things and people we love and how we can show people that we love them. Later in the unit we all will be looking at the Easter Story and will consider how love is shown in the story.
