In literacy, we have been working hard to learn the skills needed to present our findings formally and concisely in our chronological report. These include using semi-colons, presenting facts, then concluding our report with our own opinion - based upon our newly found knowledge of the Titanic.
In maths, we have been learning about negative numbers in context, with very positive outcomes! :) We also moved onto rounding numbers to any given degree.
In topic, we have developed our geography skills; we have labelled and read maps with more complex information, such as: longitude and latitude, the Tropics of Cancer and the equator.
Class 5 have become even more immersed in their new topic Frozen Kingdom. We have researched the Titanic and found out some interesting facts. The class were particularly interested to research and write about the construction of the world's largest ship. In literacy we have been preparing to write a chronological report all about the terrible events that occurred on the 15th April 1912. The whole class have contributed some interesting adverbials and adjectives to describe the events of the tragedy and we are looking forward to reading the finished articles.
Whilst looking at the iceberg that caused the fall of the mighty Titanic, we have also been exploring the animals that inhabit these colder climates. We used a variety of different mediums to sketch these fantastic creatures. I'm sure you will agree that they are a superb likeness.
Class 5 have started their first topic "Frozen Kingdom". We have been finding out about the planet's coldest lands and researching facts about the incredibly beautiful but sometimes hostile place. We have started to research the magnificent mammals that live in these snowy and icy environments and we will be exploring further how the animals adapt to live and survive in these cold habitats.
Did you know that an iceberg can weigh up to several million tons?
Did you know that polar bears are the world's largest land carnivore?
