W/C Monday 15th October

This week in Jet Class, we have been learning how to read and interpret line graphs. We looked at data on line graphs and had to answer questions accurately about it. We have also completed our assessments in reading, writing, GPS and numeracy.

On Tuesday, we welcomed parents into school for our class inspire. We sketched outlines of Egyptian landscapes and then painted them, using water colours. We have also started to investigate the process of mummification.  

W/C Monday 8th October

This week in Jet Class, we have been learning how to solve addition and subtraction problems, using the bar model to support our answers. In literacy, we have been learning how to use semi-colons in our writing and have been investigating homophones.

We also completed an independent write and will be looking at ways to edit and improve them today. We will look at our spellings, handwriting and the vocabulary we are using to make them better.  

W/C Monday 1st October 
This week in Jet Class we have been learning how to add and subtract numbers, using column methods. We used those skills to help find missing digits in calculations. In literacy, we have been writing our recounts about the finding of Tutankhamun. We have been trying to include powerful vocabulary with words like dejected, overjoyed, hideous and apprehensive.  

In RE, we have been learning about communion and why it is important. A communion is a way of remembering the sacrifice Jesus made. People share bread and wine at a communion to represent his body and his blood. We also completed our timelines linked to Ancient Egyptian history.

W/C Monday 17th September
This week in Jet Class we have been learning how to represent numbers up to 100000. We made the numbers using counters, partitioned them and wrote them out in words. In literacy, we have been investigating recounts and identifying their different features. They retell events and are written in the past tense and in chronological order.

We have also been investigating chronology and have been gathering information about key events in Ancient Egyptian history. We are going to use this information to produce detailed timelines. In RE, we have been learning about baptisms.

W/C Monday 10th September
This week in Jet Class we have been learning how to round numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000 and 10000 and exploring Roman numerals and how they work. We applied this learning to ICT, when we programmed the sprite to count in Roman numerals.

We have also been learning how to write a range of sentences types, including simple, compound and complex sentences. A complex sentence needs a main and a subordinate clause. We have been investigating chronology and are starting to look at key events in Ancient Egyptian history. We investigated different types of animals and are starting to ask questions about their different life cycles.
