Welcome to the Zoom Room!

 

Mrs Hennegan and Mrs Openshaw

Spring Term

We have become paleontologists this term as we have been learning about the topic 'Dinosaurs!' When we get a chance, we have shared our funniest dinosaur jokes!

 

English

 

In English, we have been using Visual Literacy to explore descriptive story writing. We watched a clip of Disney's 'Dinosaur' movie to develop our ideas and vocabulary. We are very proud of our stories and some are displayed on our WOW wall.  Here is the video clip if you wish to see it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-alv5ybolFE

Towards the end of this term, we have learnt about the features of a balanced argument. We were given issues to discuss in small groups and then presented both sides of the argument - for and against, to the rest of the class. We have explored this genre in our Dinosaur topic and have recently researched: 'How did dinosaurs become extinct?' Two opinions will be chosen and we will create a balanced argument including all the features we have learnt about.

 

 

Maths

In Maths this term we have enjoyed completing a 'Jurassic Park Maths Project'. First we created a logo, brand name and rides for our dinosaur theme park. Maths activities have involved: Using addition and multiplication to find the cost of our chosen dinosaurs, finding the perimeter of the various enclosures, using times table facts to calculate the amount of steaks for each dinosaur and many more!

 

 

 

 

Autumn Term 2

This term we have continued with our 'Space' topic in English and Maths. 

English

Strange noises and sounds have been reported in our Nature area and we have been investigating the evidence from various sources. We have learned the features of a newspaper report including the difference between fact and opinion. Using these features we have all written a newspaper report - 'Alien Landing?'
