Week Beginning 17th May

In Science this week we investigated Optical Illusions. Having looked at many examples, the children made Thaumatropes, which were popular in Victorian times. As part of our Victorian topic we also started to learn about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole and the affect they had on nursing today .

We are all looking forward to going to church on Monday and the children put a lot of thought into the prayers they were asked to write for the occasion.

In English this week we studied different types of literary genres and spent some time in the library doing a “treasure hunt” to see how many different types we could find.

In Maths we continued to reinforce understanding of place value by using Carroll Diagrams and Venn Diagrams to sort numbers.

Another busy week! All the children should be proud of themselves!
