Weekly learning 22.10.21
The children have loved learning about the history of Britain, for which they studied life from the Celts to the Vikings then Anglo-Saxons and finally the Normans with the Battle of Hastings in 1066. On Thursday, we visited the beach and made Norman-style Motte and Bailey sandcastles! We loved it! Eventually, the tide came in and washed them all away (we were unable to stop it - just like Cnut!).
In English this week, we have completed our Floodland text and undertook an AR Quiz about it. Remember to do an AR Quiz after each school book you read as it will boost your score and improve your love of learning. If you forget how to log on, there is a tab on this Chilton website. With Floodland, we discussed what could have caused the sea to rise in the story and decided that it must have been due to Climate Change. From this, we researched the topic and wrote non-chronological reports on the subject.
In Maths, we solved problems based on division, interpreting any remainders. Towards the end of the week, we applied our learning of the 4 operations by reading word problems and choosing which operation to use.
Love to Learn
