Week beginning 4th May 2021

Well what a week! It may have been shorter due to Bank Holiday but we have been extremely busy.

In mathematics we have been investigating angles in triangles and using our POWERS to help us to reason and problem solve. We have used this knowledge to help during our design and technology project as well, understanding that triangles are an excellent source of reinforcement for our frames.

During science we have investigated water resistance and as a result have designed streamlined boats. Building the boats is a home learning task for the week and any that are completed will be raced on Wednesday, with a small prize for the winning design. We look forward to some competitive competition.

Athletics is our focus for this half term and the children have participated in sprinting races. This week the focus was on endurance running and we were learning the importance of pace and stamina. Next week we will look at jumping for height.
