Here’s what we’ve been up to this week…
In Maths, we have continued with work on addition. We have looked at what questions we can work out mentally and which ones may require a formal written method. We have also been solving some addition problems. I have been really impressed with our ‘Morning Maths’ results too! Each morning, the class have 5 questions to complete and more and more children are getting all 5 correct. Next week, we’re aiming for 100% of the class getting them all correct!
In English, we have been focusing on colons, semi-colons and dashed, in our grammar lesson. Although many have found this a bit tricky to determine which one to use, we are starting to get the hang on them! We have also started to look at planning a story, inspired by the characters and events in the legend Robin Hood. We are looking at a first person narrative from Lady Marian’s point of view, so we can then plan our own story from another character’s point of view.
In Science, we have been taking a closer look at the heart. We know it has a vital role in the circulatory system, and there are many different parts of the heart. We’ve been using terms such as, atrium, ventricle, aorta, pulmonary veins/arteries.
In History, we have been researching The Battle of Britain, and practised taking notes on key information from the research we gathered. We now have a clearer understanding of the Who, What, Where, When and Whys? of The Battle of Britain.
Don't forget that next Thursday 26th is European Languages Day. We will be coming dressed in the colours of the Polish flag-red and white!
HOME READING-please can you encourage your child to read regularly at home, and sign their diary to acknowledge this. I know we have some superb readers in this class, who read almost nightly! I would love to see the WHOLE class now reading on a regular basis. At least four times a week is what I would consider regular!
No Golden or Writing Awards this week. We did not have Golden Assembly due to school photographs.
This week’s Maths Award went to Natalie for her positive attitude towards her maths-always ready for a challenge!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend-make the most of the sun while it’s still here!
