In maths, we are now thinking about fractions. We started by sorting fractions and non-fractions, asking ourselves: what makes a fraction anyway? Since then, we have looked at how different fractions can be represented. We have worked on finding equivalent fractions and will soon move onto ordering and comparing fractions (including fractions larger than 1). 

In Music, we were inspired by an incredible body percussion performance. We created our own 4 beat rhythm grids with a variety of sounds then performed them to the class. We later chose one rhythm grid and tried to perform whole class in canon (like on the first performance we watched!). Take a look at our attempt below. 

In English, we have been writing epilogues to our class reader, 'Pig Heart Boy'. Due to Miss Evans's limited IT skills, unfortunately the clips couldn't be combined as planned. Here are two examples of our favourite parts of our epilogues, in the form of a video diary. 

These are our final write ups of our non-chronological reports. They are all about the heart and circulatory system, which we have been also learning about in science. 

This is what we have been getting up to in Maths so far. We've learned about place value, addition and subtraction. Next week we'll be moving on to rounding, multi-step problems then multiplication. 

Take a look at our French greeting Mexican wave! Some of us also demonstrated our drama skills with a very dramatic greeting! Bonjour!

Check out the photos from our pig heart dissection. What a fantastic experience!
