Class Teacher - Miss Knott

This term we have read the excellent novel 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell Boyce which is about a group of twelve year old children who are sent on a mission into space. We have written diary entries, built up character profiles using inference skills, and written short stories involving the characters from the book. We have been learning how to develop our use of powerful vocabulary and to write using a range of sentence structures.
We have learnt lots of geometry this term. We have compared the properties of 2D and 3D shapes, learnt how to use coordinates in all four quadrants, translated and reflected shapes and learnt how to accurately construct shapes by measuring lengths and angles.
We have been learning about Space and forces this term. Below you can see photos of us measuring out the distance each planet is from the sun and also testing our parachutes to investigate air resistance.
We came up with group compositions using percussion instruments based on the animation 'The Windmill Farmer' which we used for our big write.
