This week in Science we looked at ways of measuring different forces. We used Newton meters to pull along a weight sat on various materials. This allowed us to see which material produced the most friction and how they could be used in everyday life.

“Rubber produced the most friction and gripped to the table, this is one reason we use rubber to produce car tyres rather than foil or cotton” explained Chloe.


Before designing and colouring our bricks we chose positive values that we follow in school and explained why we chose them. Some of these positive values are loyalty, perseverance and encouragement.

“Art was really fun because we got to express our positive feelings through art and discuss them openly” Kayleigh said excitedly!


In English we produced a draft describing a picture of a room we were given, this was our cold writing. We then edited and produced a final piece of writing based on Oliver Twist.

“Writing descriptions about Oliver Twist was very enjoyable because we were able to use our imagination and be creative with our writing!” exclaimed Morgan.

Maths homework links to in-class learning to allow the children to consolidate their work. Spellings are tested every week on Friday and children can choose whether to learn ‘Core’, ‘Challenge’ or ‘Extension’ words.
