Summer Term A 2022

Written by our 5.1 reporter this week:

 This Summer half-term, 5.1 have been learning about Ancient Egypt and their lives. We have learnt about why the River Nile was so important to them. Also, we have enjoyed learning about mummification(the process where a body is made into a mummy). 

In English, we have been writing a diary entry from a camels point of view. We are currently writing a story about Tadeo Jones (a fictional character) thinking about showing how he is feeling rather than just saying e.g ‘salty tears streamed from Tadeo’s eyes’, rather than ‘Tadeo is sad’. 

In Maths, we have worked on adding and subtracting decimals. Currently, we are working on several types of angles and their degree turn e.g quarter turn clockwise = 90 degrees clockwise.

In Science, we are looking at materials and their properties. Here are some photos of our experiment this week into transparent, translucent and opaque materials.
