Learning this week

 Image result for from a to b IPC 

The children have been making their own journey From A to B throughout this unit, departing from A with the use of Enquiry to gather information and delve into new understandings to arriving a B where they will complete Reflection tasks to demonstrate the knowledge, skills and understandings that they have developed throughout this unit.

We will be reflecting on:

Geography: geographical features, maps, continents and different modes of transport from around the world. The children will demonstrate their understanding of how different countries use different modes of transport based on the geographical features of that country.

History: finding out about things from the past, inventions in transport (penny farthing, model-T and bi-plane)

ICT: programming characters using an app, creating a presentation document using tables, pictures, words, saving and retrieving learning.

Music: Experimenting with different timbres, speed and volumes to create a story, recording music using symbols (self-designed)


We continue to look at different types and purposes of letters. Today we wrote letters to Fairytale characters asking about the holidays, telling them what we were doing and asking them what they were up to! We will reflect on this learning, making it bigger and better by adding more details, checking punctuation and of course ensuring perfectly formed letters!


In Maths this week we will reflect back on number learning from the year - counting in multiples of 2s, 5s and 10s, finding 1 more and 1 less than any given number, counting in sequences to and from 100 and using place value to talk about numbers.

Enjoy the last weeks at school, it is a very busy time of year but full of much fun and excitement!
