This week we have began some work on our time unit in maths. The pupils have been practicing telling the time to 5 minutes and to 15 minutes. We will also be revising durations of time later in the week. For maths homework this week, I will send out an arithmetic booklet along with a sheet detailing the methods that the children have learned to solve the problems.
In writing, we have began our innovation stage of our story ‘The Magic Paintbrush’. We have been using descriptive language to express our ideas as well as words containing suffixes. On Friday, there will be a dictation of the weekly spellings.
In science, we will be learning about living things and their habitats. In our topic ‘Animal Magic’ we will be working on making some bat leaflets.
Yesterday afternoon the pupils got a chance to listen to our lovely volunteer Mrs Davis tell them all about her recent trip to Myanmar. This tied in well with our last topic ‘Explorers’ as well as ‘Animal Magic’. The pupils got a chance to try on some traditional clothes and also to look at some photos of the rural villages!
