This week in maths we are working on length and will be learning about cm and m as well as solving word problems. During our core skills time we will be learning how to identify fractions of a number and shape. I will include what we have been learning in this weeks homework.
In writing, the pupils have started to join up their letters. I handed a sheet out to everyone last week with letter formation if they wanted to practice at home. This week also sees us finishing off our invention-the pupils have been working on using subordinating and coordinating conjunctions.
In reading, we have been working on our inference skills and justifying our answers with evidence from the text. We have also just started our reading journals where children are recording their work.
Yesterday, we were introduced to the explorers we will be learning about over the next few weeks in our topic ‘Polar Explorers’- Shackleton and Scott. The pupils found out about what makes a person significant and thought about how different exploring would have been many years ago.
On Wednesday afternoon we have an art workshop and will be creating some pieces based on our topic.
