The children have been working hard on writing their own endings for the Iron Man, thinking about the structure of chapters and their beginning, middle and end. This week, we will be using that understanding to plan and write our own stories. The childen will have to think about the structure of their story, and create a narrative which has 5 parts to it. The key challenge for them will be to make sure that the chapters ‘flow’ well together and that the story makes sense. We will use a widening range of grammatical skills to make the writing interesting for the reader.
Chapter, introduction, build up, problem, resolution, ending.
We will be teaching ‘time’ next week in Maths. There will be an initial focus on telling the time using analogue clocks consolidating how to tell the time; including to five minute and one minute demarcations. Then the students will have opportunities to interpret information from timetables, convert between different units of time, match analogue and digitial times, and finally solve time word problems.
Analogue, digital, minute hand, hour hand, AM, PM, past, to.
This week, the children will look at their design briefs and think about building their actual games. They will have to look at their plans and decide which part to create and build first, thinking about why they are choosing that order. By the end of the week, we hope that the children will be most of the way towards a completed project, and will be able to evaluate their designs.
Electrical, component, material, build, prototype, adjust, change.
COMPUTER PROGRAMMING AND DIGITAL LITERACY
This week the children will continue to undertake research about an important inventor and invention, thinking about why they were important and the impact it has had on the world. They will begin to present their information in a chosen format.

Klaar voor de start
In KS2 wordt nu hard gewerkt aan een spel.De leerlingen hebben verschillende spellen en handleidingen bekeken om inspiratie op te doen. Nu ontwerpen ze zelf een spel met als thema “de klas”. Ze ontwerpen zelf het bord, de handleiding, vragen- en opdrachtkaartjes.
Spelling werken we verder in Blok2. Ik zie dat er thuis ook goed geoefend wordt met BlOON. Heel erg goed, ga zo door!
