They have explored the festival of Dia de los Muertos and made a comparison to their festival of Halloween. They looked at why the festival of Dia de los Muertos is significant to the people of Mexico.

Science

Your child has started their Science topic and their big question is: “How can we separate a mixture of water, iron filings, salt and sand?” They have started to recap their previous knowledge on properties of materials and have been exploring what properties different materials have.

In English your child has been exploring poetic devices. They have played the game ‘Rap or Shakespeare?’ and they have read through a variety of different poems and rap lyrics to identify the techniques used.
