Our topic this term is ocean adventures, focusing this term on pirates.
In maths, we have been working hard on our place value knowledge. We have been using lots of different resources to help us represent numbers. These include using place value charts, counters and dienes.
In English, we have been following the day-to-day activities of Jake Carpenter, a young boy who has joined a sailing ship. We have enjoyed pretending to be Jake and have completed an extract from his diary, predicting what he will experience and have learnt about life aboard a ship. We have just reached an exciting part when his ship has been taken over by pirates.
For Science, we will be learning about forces and magnets and how we interact with them. We will also cover light in science. We will take part in many investigations including looking at different reflective materials and their properties to help keep us safe at night.
In Computing, we have covered what makes a safe password, how to keep passwords safe and the consequences of giving passwords away. Following the Purple Mash Scheme of Work, we will be coding to design and write a program that simulates a physical system. Finally, after watching our teachers guide us, we know how to use Google Classroom to complete our homework.
The first part of this video shows you how to log into your google classroom. Mrs Haw demonstrates with a Year 6 classroom so ensure you are using the class code given by your own teacher. You won't find the work on the video in every classroom as this was set for Year 6, so once you're logged in you can see what we have set for you in our class. Keep your eyes peeled for our welcome video too!
