This week in Cheshire 

Week beginning Monday 19th February

  

We began our new topic or Britain at War in history this week. The children have brought a wealth of prior knowledge to this topic and it was wonderful hearing them so enthusiastic to share this in class. They created a table of everything that they knew and everything that they wanted to find out, either during the topic or through their own independent research. For our second lesson this week, we looked at previous wars throughout history to give some context before we being WW1 and WW2. In groups, we researched a famous war from British history to share with the class. 

In science, we programmed microbits - small computers that can do an array of tasks. The children have used Scratch many times so they were more than up to the task of creating algorithms. They were then challenged to add in repeats to make their algorithm more effective. They then compared and contrasted between the coding programs that they have learned to use to find out similarities and differences. 

 

 

We hope you all have a wonderful, restful half term.

Mrs Latty and Mr Gibson.

Home Learning

 

Home learning and spellings will be set each week on a Thursday and will be due in the following Tuesday. 

 

Times Tables Rockstars! 

To keep practising the multiplication taught in class, and challenging yourself to keep the ones you already know fresh, don’t forget to log into your Times Tables Rockstars account. 

https://play.ttrockstars.com/

 

Rapid recall of multiplication is essential for success in maths and Times Tables Rockstars gives children self-confidence, recognition and motivation to improve.  Challenge yourself to beat your score, build your knowledge and watch your confidence sore, as you become a Rockstar!

Please ask your class teacher if you need replacement log in details.

 

 

 

Please work through the activities below, as we will be working on these skills in our lessons:
