In Maths, we have covered column addition, subtraction and multiplication. This week we are thinking about factors. We all used counters to find factors of numbers using arrays. 

On Wednesday 2nd October, we were invited to a reflective art workshop at the local church. We really enjoyed this, thinking about 3 pieces of art called "love", "hurting" and "dreaming". 

In RE, we have been thinking about the pilgrimages of different religions. We have learned in lots of different ways - board games, matching activities...

Visitors from RAF Cosford Museum came to discuss World War I and the importance of remembrance. There were artefacts to look at and enjoy! 

Today we used our Anglo-Saxon inspired designs to create our own prints! Take a look at what we made...

Another investigation in Science this week! This time we have been thinking about how sound can change. First, we listened to classical music to identify changes in pitch. Then in our investigation, we used a balloon, straw and elastic bands to change the sound and notice the difference in pitch. 

We have now moved onto addition in maths. We have been adding up to 6 digit numbers and applying our knowledge to reasoning questions. 

Recently during French we have been thinking about how to say our birthdays. To do this, we revisited our numbers to 31 and then our months. Here you can briefly see us playing a game when we had to jump up for our birthday month. 

In D&T, we made a home appropriate for an Anglo-Saxon. We had to choose which materials would be most appropriate and try to recreate features within the home. At the moment, these are still on display in our classroom. 

In Science we are learning about sound. So far, the children have learnt some definitions about sound (such as frequency, volume and amplitude). Then, we felt vibrations through musical instruments. In our most recent Science lesson, we conducted an investigation into how far different sounds travel. 

In maths, we have been thinking about place value. Within this, we have compared, ordered and rounded numbers up to a million. 

In literacy (or 'theme') we have been thinking about character profiles. We started with writing about King Offa, who was the King of Mercia. Now, we have started writing character profiles about King Alfred the Great.
