LKS2 News

Come and see what LKS2 have been up to this week!

Year 3

We’ve had a great week in Year 3, and have taken time to celebrate black history month whilst connecting with seasonal change in our ambitious poems ‘Richmond in Autumn’. We have used a great range of poetic techniques such as personification, alliteration and similes! In maths, we have continued our unit of place value and have compared and ordered numbers up to 1000 using vocabulary such as more/greater than, lew than/fewer than, equal to/the same as. In science, we have been learning about skeletons! We have classified endoskeletons, exoskeletons and hydrostatic skeletons whilst considering their advantages and disadvantages! In geography, we have considered the lower course of rivers, and have enjoyed exploring their features using maps (on ipads, but more excitingly atlases!). In computing, we have planned our animation sequences which we will start to create next week, whilst in art we have used tone to add depth and intrigue to our creations. In French we have enjoyed learning greetings and telling our partners how we are feeling!

Key Messages

  • Key vocab: endoskeleton, exoskeleton, hydrostatic skeleton, river mouth, estuary, greater, fewer, tone.

  • KIRFs: Finding 10 more or 10 less than a given number.

  • Spellings: suffix -ous (dangerous)

Year 4

Year 4 have had another  busy week across the curriculum, from launching black history month to melting chocolate for our science investigation. In addition to this we have had lots of great discussions about how we keep safe and who we can talk to if we have any concern. In Maths this week we have been rounded to the nearest 10, 100 and 1,000. Why not ask your how them remember how to round up or down.  After identify the features of a diary last week in English, we have begun to consider sentence structure and how to portray show not tell in our writing. During geography we have built on our solid knowledge of the four biomes last week, looking inwards and reflected on how humans have used and impacted these spaces. The children have been writing scripts in computing and prepping their sound effects to record their podcasts. After reading some of their ideas we can't wait to record their episodes. We are looking forward to our trip to the wetlands centre next week Tuesday! This will link in to our Science and Geography learning.
