This week in Friesian Class
This week we will be scientists in our immersion curriculum sessions and will be learning about electricity, and in particular, different types of circuits. We have already created a human circuit using a 'power stick' and experimented with building circuits to light bulbs and work motors. It has been lovely to see so many of the children coming in to tell us things that they have already found out having used the links provided in the information sheet. In English, we will be writing a quest story written in the style of the Blodden adventure, which, as some of the children have noted, is similar to The Hobbit. We will be focusing on expanded noun phrases, using inverted commas for speech and including fronted adverbials to vary our sentence structure. In maths, we are developing number sense by adding and subtracting 10, 100 or 1000 to a variety of numbers. We will be developing this by looking at worded problems where children have to work backwards to find the answers. We will also be learning about rounding. In computing, we will be using design software to create backdrops for our animations and will be experimenting with adding simple code to make characters move.
