This week we have been looking at the variation of properties in materials. Materials can be grouped into 3 categories; solids, liquids and gasses. We learnt about the molecules in each group and how solids are very compact, liquids are a little looser and gasses are able to move about freely.
Remember to practice your spellings and multiplications for this week. Homework is due in on Tuesday 15th January.
We will be learning about journalistic writing (newspapers) over the next few weeks. Newspapers have many features, two of which are the Headline and the Lead paragraph. The Headline is like the title of the report, whereas the Lead Paragraph is the first short paragraph. Find articles at home and write the headline and answer the 5Ws (who, what where and when) to explain what the article is about.
We are focussing on fractions. This week’s focus is on simplifying fractions. Remember, if the numbers are even we can half them. If they are odd we need to look for the highest common factors.
Answer the AT2 question in your blog.
“Would the world be a better place if we practice reconciliation more often?”
Find items in your house and fill in the table for solids, liquids and gasses.
