We have had a brilliant time this week learning about capacity, planning our own science investigations and writing newspaper articles.
In Science, we were thinking about the which type of chocolate would be best for Willy Wonka to use when building Prince Pondicherry’s Indian Palace. We planned and carried our own investigation. The children impressed us with the predictions and conclusions they made.
This week we have been learning how to estimate and measure temperature and capacity. We enjoyed practical measuring activities as well as problem solving. We even invented our own recipes for Willy Wonka’s Fizzy Lifting Drinks!
In English we have been thinking about the characters in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The children learned how to use direct speech to help explain what a character’s personality is like.
We hope you have a lovely bank holiday weekend and we’ll see you on Tuesday.

We hope everyone had a lovely Easter break. We have been very impressed with how well the children came into school on Tuesday and how enthusiastic and eager they are to learn.
This week we have started to read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. In English, the children have been thinking about and describing different settings from the story.
The children then designed their own World of Sweets in Art. We used these designs to inspire their writing.
In Maths, we have continued our work on time. The children have been learning how to sequence different intervals of time and how to solve worded problems on time.
For homework, we have sent home a game to help children practise different intervals of time. Here is the link to support the homework.
