Science homework practical tasks due 23.01.19

During our science lessons the children are finding out about teeth and how to look after them. We would like them to investigate how effectively they brush their teeth. You would need to get a plaque disclosing tablet (from a pharmacy) to check how thoroughly they are cleaning their teeth.


Brush teeth as normal. Chew tablet (follow instructions on packet). Observe how much coloured plaque remains. Suggest how to improve their brushing. Take photos to show the process. We will discuss the results in our lesson on Wednesday.

Our weekly update from Friday:

What have we been up to?

It has been a busy week this week. In our topic lessons, we have been learning about the different gods and goddesses that the Ancient Egyptians believed in. The children have been creating fact files about each one. In Science, the children have been learning more about the different teeth they have and the homework this week is a practical one linked to looking after our teeth and keeping them clean and healthy. In music, the children have learnt a call and response song and had a go at writing new lyrics for it. In our RE lessons we have been learning about why some Christians choose to go on a pilgrimage.


This week has involved a lot of drama, role play and thinking about things from the point of view of different characters. We have learnt what happened to Noah when he visited two villages which resulted in a trial! We have now started to plan our newspaper report on the trial of Noah stealing apples from a tree.


This week we have been focusing in both year groups on multiplication strategies. We have been learning how to use apparatus and diagrams to illustrate our calculations as well as applying this to problem solving questions. Year 4 have been learning about factors and informal written methods to solve multiplication questions.

Remember to continue your reading at home, and keep practising those times tables for our weekly 99 club sessions! If you read 5 times a week (and have your record signed by an adult) you will earn a sticker. The more stickers you have, the more housepoints you can earn!

Practising handwriting.

The children have been practising their

handwriting in this way, starting as large

as possible to clearly practice the appropriate

joins between letters.


In the example 'dog' here, you can see that
the letter is given 9 lines to be written
making sure that the ascenders touch
the top 
line, and the descenders touch the
bottom of 
the ninth line. This allows each
'section' of the 
letter to fill 3 lines. In the next
example there 
are 6 lines for the letter, 2 for
the ascending, 2 
for the descending and 2 for
the middle 
section. This is continued until the
children can write the letter within the spaces of just one line.

We have been learning this song in Year 3 if they would like to practise it at home!
