Last week in Science, we had planted dwarf sunflower seeds.  This week, we used a ruler to measure their progress! We learnt about the function of the stem, taking water to other parts of the flower, and predicted what would happen if we added blue dye to the water some flowers stood in. As most of us predicted, the white flowers started to turn blue.

In Topic, we are coming to the end of our Explorers unit and have been finding out the effects of overtourism on Venice. We are busy producing a double-page spread in our books to showcase what we know.

In Writing, we have been practising using inverted commas so that we can include direct speech in our narratives next week. We are basing these on a book called FLOOD. The children have come up with some fantastic adjectives to make their pieces descriptive.

Help at home by continuing to listen to your child read daily, practising spellings from the spelling list and helping your child to access TTRS. These things all have a noticeable impact on learning – thank you for your support!
