This week, Admirals have finished writing their adventure stories, as well as investigating the features of biographies. In maths, the children have been practicing a variety of subtraction methods, trying to select the most efficient method to use for each question.
The children had a debate about what happened to the Maya civilisation in 900AD, looking at different theories and sharing opinions in a debate. In science, the children conducted interviews with each other, imagining they were astronauts.
This week in Admirals, the children have been writing adventure stories during literacy. They have created characters, planned and written a structured story with the aim to entertain the reader. The children will share their stories with each other next week. In maths, the children have been becoming experts as subtracting 3-digit and 4 digit numbers and selected the most efficient method when doing so. In history, the children completed their Maya masks and they each created an interesting travel leaflet about Chichen Itza.
Thank you to all parents who attended the MacMillan Coffee Morning. The children have been created paper models, to show the movement of the moon in relation to the Earth and Sun. The children have been learning about the foods that were grown and eaten during the Maya civilisation. In literacy, the children planned, wrote and edited a guide to capturing a dragon.
The children helped raise money for MacMillan Cancer Trust this week by baking scones and completed various activities to promote it, including making bunting and posters.
Also, the children have been re-creating scenes from 'No Such thing as Dragons' and performed them.
This week, Admirals have been writing and editing their poems about the sights they might see, travelling down a river. Some of their work will be on display in the school.
In maths, the children have been learning about place value and using this knowledge to solve addition and subtraction questions. Also, the children have been practicing a range of methods for solving addition and subtraction questions, selecting the most efficient method to solve a range of questions.
In computing, Admirals have began to explore creating a digital game and the features, such as background and characters, that they may include.
