First week back!

Welcome Back! I hope you all had a lovely half term.

In English, we have started our new topic ‘Wonder’. Wonder is about a young boy named August Pullman who was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school - until now. He's about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep. The book follows August’s struggles to try and fit into life in middle school. The children have been using ‘hot seating’ activities to get into character as August and have written some fantastic diary entries.

We are currently on stop 6 of our USA road trip, where we visited Florida. We looked at why Florida is nicknamed the ‘Sunshine state’ and of course, we had to visit DISNEYLAND. The children used all this information to create persuasive posters, to persuade families to take a trip to Florida.

In Science, we have started our new topic for the half term – Forces. We looked at different types of forces including, gravity, air resistance, water resistance and friction. This week, we will be looking in more detail about gravity and air resistance by carrying out an investigation to discover which material would be most suitable for a parachute.
