In Literacy we have looked at Calligrams and made our own to describe the Anglo-Saxon journey over the sea. You can see all our amazing Calligrams below.
We have begun to look at and write our own Kenning poems. We are enjoying describing animals using nouns and verbs.
In maths we are looking at the different properties of 2D shapes. We are good at identifying shapes by their properties and have looked at symmetry within shapes. As well as practicing our times tables regularly we have been using column subtractions to solve problems.
In science we are learning about light sources. We have used experiments to find out which colours show up in the dark and we are researching and sorting light sources to show our understanding.
We have looked at the beliefs of Christians this term. We have researched the places Christians believe to be important, such as Bethlehem, Nazareth, and Jerusalem. We looked at the ten commandments and what they mean to Christians.
This term we are going to be looking at how to stay safe on the internet. We will find out about how much information we should share online and what to do if we feel unsafe.
