Weekly Update (Week ending 7.2.20)
We have ended the week with a wonderful NSPCC number day. Thank you everyone for the fantastic effort that you put in! We enjoyed a maths quiz and Celtic Knot making patters to everything 9 various activities.
In English, we have started to look at narratives and are enjoying 'Leon and the Place Between'. Ask the children to tell you all about this wonderful book.
Year 4 have started to look at data handling and have explored bar and line graphs. See below for more information.
In science, we've started to learn all about electricity. We made complete and incomplete circuits to see if we power a light bulb. If was a lot of fun! During our topic lesson, we have started exploring the Anglo-Saxons and their influence on modern day Britain. In History, we looked at who the Anglo-Saxons were and where they settled. In Geography, we are thinking about what early settlers needed and what a good landscape to settle on looks like. Our RE lessons will involve visits from community leaders, teaching us what being part of a community looks like. A big thank you to Rev Kylie and Yasmin for coming in and talking to us about their religious communities. Also to the Scout leaders who came this week.
Just a reminder, to sign up to Marvellous Me if you haven't already done so. It's a great way to see what fantastic work we're doing in class.
Additionally, MPL now has its own twitter account - this is another great way to keep up to date with everything that is going on in school.
Have a lovely weekend.
