This week the children have completed a short tale about William Brown, manipulating grammar and vocabulary to achieve the appropriate register. The children have got to know the character very well and have scripted some lovely work. In maths the children have been deepening their understanding of measuring by scale, making and using an astrolable to measure the height of a tree or building. They have problem solved with triangles, which has further deepened their knowledge and prepared them for trigonometry next year. Their heightened understanding has relied on a good use of technical vocabulary to full understand the concept of scaling.
