This Week’s Learning w/c 13th November

Topic

This week we had a science focus in our topic ‘Sport in Action’. At the start of the week we set up a experiment using eggs to see which liquid would affect the egg shell the most, it was very smelly when we opened them after four days. In pairs, the children designed a healthy meal for an athlete, making sure it was a balanced meal. We then learnt the names of our teeth and their functions. Also, we experienced the journey our food takes through our digestive system and the names of each of the organs within it. Finally, we looked at food chains, discussing how they start and end.

Maths

This week was all focused on recalling multiplication and division facts, to do this we discussed commutative law and the relationships between numbers. We then used this knowledge to solve a range of problems, including multiplying three numbers.
