In Maths we are finishing up our unit on addition and subtraction. The pupils have been using concrete resources to show them why we exchange into the tens and hundreds column, as well as learning different methods to help them in this area (using the bar model, part whole model etc.)
In English, we will continue to work on our book ‘Blodin the Beast’. The pupils will be learning how to use an apostrophe to show possession, as well as writing from the point of view of one of the villagers. We will also be working on some poetry towards the end of the week where we will be using our descriptive language and five senses.
In Science we will be learning about magnetic poles and creating a poster about what we have found out. In our topic, we will be exploring how volcanoes affect people’s lives. In Music we will be using our glockenspiels to play along with our song ‘Three Little Birds’. In spelling we will be proof reading different pieces of work as well as using different strategies to help us remember our words.
Please remember to bring in your reading journal on Thursday.
Group 1: x6, x7
Group 2: x4, x5
As we will be working on creating our volcano models over the next few weeks, could you please send your child into school with a small drinks bottle, some newspaper and cardboard?
