Why do people take journeys?


Here are some of the journeys we have taken as a class.

One of the places Phileas Fogg travels to is India so we have been exploring the village of Chembakolli in India and comparing it to Pennington. We went for a walk to see what we could find in Pennington and have had lots of pictures and writing to get an idea of what Chembakolli is like. This week we have been focusing on writing an information report for a geography text book.

We are well into our unit on measurement. The children have been having lots of practical experience of measuring different things and been using different unit of measurements. This week has seen lots of converting of measurements. We have been using the conversion wheels on the maths board to help!

Luke managed to complete this loop challenge where he had to convert different measurements. Luckily the wind didn't blow them away!

The document below shows which tables need to be learnt in which year group and you will see that it isn't as daunting as you might think!


We have been looking at living things and their habitats. The children have been exploring food chains and having a really good go at trying to use the technical language in their work.

Our PE days continue to be on Tuesday and Friday but children will need their trainers everyday for the golden mile. Please make sure your child has their full PE kit in school for the whole week.
