This week in Science we have been learning about electrical insulators and conductors. We were given the challenge to help a football team make their flood lights brighter. In small groups we investigated what electrical conductors made a bulb brighter in a circuit.

“My group found that the paper clip and foil tray both conducted the most electricity as the bulb was brightest with these materials in the circuit” 

Our in focus in Art was sketching. We used different sketching pencils to create different tones and layers. We sketched different objects that were on the tables. 

“I used random hatching and ink wash to sketch a monkey”

“I used cross hatching and contour hatching to sketch a lunch box”

In English we wrote formal persuasive letters for out Hot Write. We could write a letter to anyone we wanted to about anything we wanted to, as long as it was persuasive.

“My letter was to Mrs Watts about a sponsored silence”

“My letter was to the prime minster to ask to change a law”

“My letter was to Leicester Tiger Ruby club about a safety net”

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.
