Shark Class Weekly Update 23/4/21

A busy week in Sharks; we have been recapping our knowledge of finding equivalent fractions and simplifying them. We have used bar models to represent the fractions to help us visualise the concept of equivalence. We also looked at converting improper fractions to mixed numbers. We were proud of how much we had remembered from the autumn term and some of us were really creative in finding ways to tackle reasoning problems. In English we have been using semi-colons to clarify descriptive lists and are using these to write descriptive scene settings about the Ancient Greek afterlife realms of Elysium, Asphodel Fields and Tartarus. In science we enjoyed learning about the structure and function of the heart and are looking forward to finding out more next week. We have also been excited to read more of our book ‘ Who let the Gods out’ and have made some predictions about what will happen next – it is all very tense
