A lunch box company needed our help in Science! We were set the challenge to find the best materials to keep lunches cool all morning. We conducted an investigation into thermal insulators and conductors. In small groups we investigated the best material out of tin foil, bubble wrap, plain paper, plastic and cotton wool. We then put an ice cube into the material to discover which material stopped the ice cube from melting. We found that tin foil and bubble wrap were the best thermal insulators.

“I guessed that plastic would be the best thermal insulator as nothing can go through it. I was wrong, it was actually tin foil”

This week in Geography, we have been studying different mountains. In groups, we chose a mountain to research. Once we have found lots of facts and information we created a mountain fact file!

“I enjoyed making the fact file as I found out things I never knew before!”

This week in English, we have been learning about formal letter features which persuade the reader. We are using the acrostic AFOREST to remember the features. We are looking forward to writing our own letter next week.

Homework is given out weekly on Tuesday and is due in on Monday. In Literacy, the focus this half term is reading comprehension. 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. The children also have weekly times tables practice which should be evident in homework books.
