The children really enjoyed observing what happened to the eggs in different types of drinks for our science investigation this week. We were trying to investigate to see if sugary drinks caused tooth decay. Yesterday, we took the eggs out and observed closely and noticed the eggs in water and milk had stayed the same, but the egg in cola had turned black and the egg in orange juice had white specks on. We then looked at how we can look after our teeth, and the different types of teeth humans have and their functions.
In English, we have been looking at setting descriptions. We have been looking at using adjectives and figurative language: similes, metaphors, personification and hyperbole. After analysing a text and writing a setting description as a class, we tried to write one on our own.
Our Golden Certificate winner this week is Holly. She has really impressed us this week in English, where she has given thought out answers in our reading sessions and used some great descriptive language in her writing. Well done!
In Maths, we’ve been looking at multiplying and dividing by 3, 6, 7, 9, 11 and 12. We have talked about how we can use the times tables we know, to help us with those we are not yet confident with.
Next week we will be doing some food tasting in our Design and Technology lessons. Please make sure we are aware of all food allergies by Wednesday. Thank you.
Have a lovely weekend.
Mrs Fairclough, Mrs Brunyard and Mrs Bayliss
