In English this week we used our explanation texts about the robot pets that we designed as inspiration to write a letter of complaint. We imagined that we had bought our robot pets but that they were faulty; we then planned and wrote a letter of complaint to the manufacturers. The children thought carefully about what we needed to do to make sure this was a formal letter.
In French this week the children performed the weather reports that they have been working on with a partner. Madame Richards was very impressed with how well the children carried out their presentations; she was particularly impressed with how well the children remembered what they wanted to say and she also said that their pronunciation of the French words was brilliant!
Our Science lesson this week was focused on making magnets. First we learnt how to magnetise a paperclip by rubbing a magnet along it over and over again. We then thought about how we could investigate the question, ‘If a paperclip is magnetised, how long will it stay magnetic for?’. We thought of different things that might affect this, such as, the type of magnet used or the number of times we rubbed the magnet across the paperclip. The results we found surprised us as the paperclips stayed magnetic for mu conger than we thought they would!
This week’s spellings have been set on Spelling Shed; we will have a short test on the first Tuesday back after half-term.
