We have had a great week in Athena.

In English, we have been learning all about paragraphs and how important they are in different types of writing. Next week, we are planning to write a letter to Fern (who is one of the main characters in Charlotte’s Web) telling her all about our favourite pets. This letter will include a series of paragraphs, which will help us to organise our writing and aid the reader’s understanding of the topic we are discussing.

In maths, we have been practising and developing our knowledge of the grid method to solve multiplication problems. We used this method on Friday to help answer questions in our torture tables test and found it to be very useful.

In science, we are continuing to build circuits but, this time, we included switches as well as bulbs. Instead of a lamp, some children extended their investigation further by using a switch to control the power to a motor. Next week, we are planning to undertake a second science investigation involving home-made switches.

Finally, we had a fantastic time during our D.T. lesson. In preparation for when we make our healthy breakfast muffins, we undertook a food tasting session where we tried all different types of fruits and seeds. The children were fantastic during this session because they all tried foods that they were unsure of. The next stage of our project involves designing our muffins and investigating which two ingredients go well together in terms of taste.
