Week beginning Monday 20th March - Weekly News for Team Royal and Team Indigo
In Guided Reading this week, we have started a brand-new book called 'The Lonely Beast' written by Chris Judge. Whilst getting to know the book we have become actors when acting out scenes, summarised unknown language from the book, created story maps to help us become more familiar with the plot and finished the week by answering comprehension style questions as if we were the beast in the story.
In English this week, we have been building up to writing a narrative on how the beast moves in different places e.g. the ocean, the forest and the city. We started the week by recapping verbs and adverbs, we then looked at coordinating conjunctions and time conjunctions which lead us to be able to confidently write a narrative using all of those skills.
In English next week we will be learning how to write a newspaper report.
Each week we will be practising new spellings. If you would like to have a go at home, the spellings for the English group are:
The spellings for the RWI group are
In Maths this week, we have been looking at finding fractions of shape and amounts. To do this, we had to understand that a numerator tells us how many equal parts to look at whereas the denominator tells us how many equal parts there are. We can all now confidently find halves, quarters and thirds of shape and amounts. Some of us can even find numerous parts such as two thirds and three quarters.
In Maths next week, we will be learning about position and direction.
This week in Thematic Curriculum, we have been focusing on Science. In Science this week we have been looking at offspring and life cycles of mammals, fish, reptiles, amphibians, insects and birds. We finished the week by recreating the life cycles but in an artistic fashion using watercolours.
