This week in Friesian class, we will be continuing with our work as scientists, learning about electricity and electrical circuits. We have already learned about the parts of a simple series circuit and have now started trying to construct parallel circuits. This week, we will be completing a series of challenges during which the children will have to think scientifically in order to make different combinations of bulbs and motors to work according to certain rules. We will be culminating our learning by creating quiz boards, which will light up or buzz when the correct answer is selected.
In English, we will be planning and writing our own adventure stories, putting into practise the elements we have been focusing on, such as the use of expanded noun phrases and inverted commas. In maths, we will be continuing our work on place value and will be comparing and ordering 3 and 4 digit numbers, as well as solving problems which require us to apply our knowledge.
In computing, we will be adding characters to the back grounds we have already made, and will be beginning to write simple code to make the characters move.
